Falling for the Holidays 2023 {BYSHC} Linky Party ~ Caitlin Girl ~ Unity Stamp Co.

Hello there crafty friend!
I'm so excited to share another card for day 4 of the Falling for the Holidays 2023 {BYSHC} Linky Party!! Today I'm featuring the wonderful Caitlin Girl stamps from Sponsor Unity Stamp Co. I have had this beauty in my collection for quite some time, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've inked her up.

I paired this sweet stamp up with the lovely Rustic Winter Wishes {paper pack} also from Unity. I love the contrast of the dark background with the pop of white for the focal panel. I also found a piece of kraft pattern paper in my paper pack that was perfect size for this sketch. I adhered my pattern paper layers to a white A2 top fold card base using the iCraft UltraBond Adhesive from Sponsor Therm O Web.

Caitlin Girl was stamped with Black Amalgam ink from Sponsor Gina K. Designs. I colored her up with Copic markers and also did a bit of paper piecing for her hat and jacket using a pretty paper from the Getting Cozy {paper pack} that is also from Unity. 
Here's a quick list of the Copic Markers I used:

Skin ~ E000, E00, E11
Hair ~ YR31, E43, E44
Scarf  / Gloves / Boots / Accents ~ R20, R14, R46
Pants ~ E51, E31, E33
Belt ~ E51, E31, E33, E35
Small Snowman ~ C00, B0000, YG11, G24, G46, R20, R14, R46, YR15, YR68
Snowman ~ C00, B0000, YG11, G24, G46, YR15, YR68
Outline ~ C00, C1

I die cut the colored image with a die from the Scalloped Stitched Mini Slimline dies from Sponsor Gina Marie Designs. The space on the right side of Caitlin Girl was limited but I thought the fun 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from the Cute Santa stamps from Unity would fit and it did!! I stamped it with Candied Apple Distress Oxide inks. And then I covered the back of the panel with a bunch of iCraft 3D Foam Squares from Sponsor Therm O Web. I love the dimension the foam gives to the card!

My card was inspired by the {BYSHC} Sketch 10. Another favorite! It works really well with larger stamps!  Have you visited the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers Facebook group? We host a fun sketch challenge each month to inspire our holiday cardmaking all year long. It's been such a big help to me. No more stressing in November/December if I'll have enough Christmas cards ready.
