Be Jolly

Here's my card for this month's AEI♥U tag themed challenge.  I used the current sketch from Retro Sketches for this sweet wintery design.

Be Jolly card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Avery Elle
I stamped the snowman from the Be Jolly set on shimmery white cardstock, then colored the image with Copic markers.  After cutting it out with the matching die, I used dimensional dots to adhere it to a blue tag.  I wrapped the top of the tag with some natural twine, then attached it to a piece of red patterned paper.  The set's "be jolly" sentiment was stamped in black ink on a kraft strip.  I scattered a trio of white sequins around the cardfront, then adhered the patterned paper panel to a kraft card base.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Avery Elle Be Jolly stamp set and Be Jolly die; Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Fancy Pants Everyday Circus 6x6 paper pad; Hemptique Bronze twine; white sequins; Sticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Sea Glass cardstock (Avery Elle); Real Red cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); tag die (My Favorite Things)
