Hello! Well, it's the start of a new week. Where oh where did the weekend go??? We went to see Nanny McPhee 2 this weekend---LOVED IT!!! What a Fantastic movie!!! Tomorrow is the start of the new school year for our youngest and he is excited! I have to admit mom is a little excited too--LOL! *wink*Today, I have a Christmas card to share with you. The color combination is a little different but I love the softness of the colors. The pattern paper is a very pretty soft aqua and antique white.To start I made two diecuts using S4-293 Lacey Circles die #3 and S4-285 Nested Mittens die #3 from Spellbinders™. I folded the circle in half and inked the edges. For the mitten I randomly stamped a snowflake image from JustRite Stampers JB-09795 Whimsical Christmas using a JB-09505 Clear 2'' Round Stamper and then inked the edges with Tea Dye ink.The mitten die template that I used was the largest in the set so to create a brown mat just simply laid the die template on your paper, trace and hand cut for a perfect mat. Adhere the two pieces together and then add the circle at the top to create a pretty cuff for the mitten. I used the NEW My Stik™ from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ to adhere all of my pieces together. Then I ran a ribbon through the loops on each end and attached it to the backside of the mitten. To add a bow on top I used 1/2 of a small 3D Foam Square from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™.For the sentiment I used the NEW JB-08097 Myriad Pro Font-50 points along with the JB-09520 Clear Horizontal Stampers-2 pack (1-5/8'' x 3-1/2''). I love the simplicity of this font set!I stamped the sentiment "Warm Wishes" using Rich Cocoa ink. Then I used the Grand Calibur™ from Spellbinders™ along with the S4-235 Fancy Tags die template to cut/emboss the diecut and then I stenciled through the die template with Tea Dye ink. Here is a close-up of the tag. I also added Lush Blue rhinestones.Here is a close-up of the mitten and the embossed background. To create the background I used I2-1003 Snowflake Impressabilities™ and then inked the paper.
