Good morning! Wow, I can't believe how fast 12 weeks flew by! For today's project I have a Christmas card to share with you.To create the card I used JustRite Cling CL-02025 Sparky and Friends stamp set from JustRite Stampers. This is a fun Christmas stamp set and includes 12 stamps in the set. I used non traditional colors for the card but I really like the pinks and blues for the Christmas holiday. The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Collection and the Fine and Dandy Collection. I started with a piece of paper from the Fine and Dandy Collection and randomly stamped three of the snowflake images from JustRite Cling CL-02025 Sparky and Friends stamp set using Broken China ink. In the photo you can see a before and after look of the paper. Here is a close up of the background paper.
Next I stamped the mitten image using Rich Cocoa ink. Then I lined up the die template and taped it in place and cut/embossed the shape. The mitten die template is from S4-285 Nested Mittens. Then I colored the cuff of the mitten and the heart with Copic markers and inked around the edges with Vintage Photo ink.Here is a close up of the mittens.
I cut/embossed the snowflakes using S4-286 2010 Snowflake Pendants and inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink.I used White 3D Foam Squares to layer all of the pieces for the snowflake and mittens. The shape card was created using the Grand Calibur™ and LF-126 Grand Squares die #3, LF-127 Grand Scalloped Squares die #3 from Spellbinders™.I added diamond stickles to the white snowflake, scalloped edge, mittens and snowflake on the background paper.
