Welcome to my last post of 2016!
Here's a quick, fun card I made while relaxing on the 26th. The week between Christmas and New Years is probably my favorite week of the year, it always feels like a week out of time to me - more relaxed and slower after the pre-Christmas rush!
I started my card by cutting our new Skip Winter stamp so the mittens were separate from the wording so I could stamp the mittens twice and then center the saying under both - it also let me use black ink for the mittens and blue for the wording :)
I added the Pine Tree Snowdrifts above the mittens and used a single snowflake from the mittens to add a few flakes above the trees/snowdrifts. The photo is actually showing waaaay more blue than my actual card for both the snow (turquoise ink) and the sky (cornflower blue ink) but I just can't get it to lighten up on my computer no matter what I tried.
After coloring the mittens I went for a simple background of sponged pink and purple and layered it with some purple paper in between.
Thanks so much for visiting!
Happy New Year!!!
