Flower Soft, Echo Park Paper, and Copic Christmas Card with Lori

I see by the calendar that I am a day late posting this - oops!  Good thing no one else was scheduled for today...

Anyway, I have a fun little project for you today.  I always like to look for new uses for existing products, and today I did something a little different with my Flower Soft.  Here's a Christmas card I made:

I decided to use the Raspberry Fizz ultra-fine Flower Soft on the girl's umbrella and scarf.  You know that material that has dimensional fuzzy stuff on it?  That's what I was going for here, and I rather like the way it turned out.  I also used Polar White for my snowflakes - don't they look nice and fluffy?

Now, just a couple of other things to note: My card is 5x7, and I covered the front using a paper from the 6x6 Country Drive paper pad from Echo Park Paper.  I just covered the seam with my ribbon.  My doily mat is from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge.  (Remember, Kim may not have a cartridge listed in the store, but she can probably get you the one you want!)

I colored my image (sorry, not available at Cutters Creek) using Copic Markers.  I swear, the more I play with them, the more fun they are and the better I get at using them!  Here's the list of colors I used:
  • Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R29(lips)
  • Hair - E37, E59
  • Scarf & Umbrella - YG07, YG09
  • Jacket - RV29
  • Jeans - B32, B34
  • Boots - C2, C6
  • Bird & Holly - RV29, R29, Y17, YG63, YG67
Thanks for stopping by today and checking us out!  Hope to see you again soon.


  1. Lori I love that you used the flower soft on the umbrella. It really makes a fashion statement. Your card layout is really nice & your coloring looks great. Hugs, Fran

  2. Lovely. Good reminder of how to get more out of a 6x6 pad!
