A very merry card


Hello and welcome to Day 3 of our October Rubber Die Release Showcase!

On Wednesday (12 October), Whimsy Stamps released this month's rubber designs and new shapeology dies. From then until 19 October the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new stamps and dies with a daily mini blog hop.

Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00 PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations blog after 12.00 PM EST on 19 October.

I used Bart Loves Christmas on my card, along with Holiday Postage Stamps sentiment set.

The image was coloured with Copics, then smothered in glitter and Glossy Accents.
I made the pins with pearls I got from Quixotic Paperie. The paper is by Crate Paper. I also used vintage seam binding and cute stocking charm from Whimsy.

Hej Annika!

Your name sounds Swedish but since you live on Ireland i don't dare to write a comment in Swedish..

Anyway your card is stunning; I love the dragon, the two pins with all the pearls and your double bow looks really great. Good luck in the competition!
