Card Recipe:
Image - Winter Chloe

Paper- Holly Jolly by The Paper Studio
Die Cut- Spellbinders
Border Punch- Snowflake by Martha Stewart
Ribbon- Michaels
Button Brads- The Paper Studio
Snowflakes- Unknown

Although it can be a little fiddly I really love this technique and it adds a completely different look to your creations. I paper pieced the shoes, pants, sweater, scarf and headband and just filled in with my Copics.
I hope you liked it and will come over and share with us at Gem of A Challenge
