Love Never Melts

Meet “Siku and Shiya” two little Eskimo children  (I’m assuming that they are Eskimo, forgive me if that is politically incorrect). When I first saw this stamp at One Crazy Stamper, from Stampavie, I knew exactly what I wanted to do to fit perfectly into the “LOVE” theme for Jan. at One Crazy Stamper.P1110758 copy
My card measures 5 1/2” x 4 1/8”.  I used copics R00, R20, E21 R24, R28, B00, B66 and B69.  Also used C0 and C4 for shading and Tim Holtz distress inks (Broken China and Tattered Rose) for sponging around the heart.
Stickles, ribbon, Love stickers, and snowflakes from stash.
P1110757 copyThe surprise is the way the card opens – it “breaks open”.  The tutorial for a Break-a-way Card can be found on my blog.

Tip: I matted my decorated cardfront onto Not Quite Navy (SU), cut another identical mat and used repositionable tape to adhere both mats together with the card front facing up.  I then cut the two exactly in half vertically  to get the four identically sized pieces for the break-a-way card.
