Let It Snow

If only I could see snow in Hawaii. Yeah right!!! I will take Christmas on the beach any day! My wonderful Mom just send me a package with some yummy goodies and candy too! Hehehe...I opened the box to find three stamp sets. Well, I couldn't let them go uninked now could I? I found a little mojo today from Poetic Artistry. I used Julee's Monday sketch to play with and this is how it came out.

I'm not to sure about this one. I have never made my own background before. I love relying on designer paper but I just had to give it a try. My card base is 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of lavender with a piece of 4" square of light blue layered on top. I them cut a wavy piece of silver sparkly designer paper for the bottom layer (I wanted to snowy effect). Next I inked my new mittens in Versamark Black and stamped three images on basic white then layered first on green, red, and then on a scalloped piece of green. I used colored pencils to color the hears. Then I used my glitter gel pen to draw a 'clothes line' linking the mittens. So cute! I then doodled faux stitching around all the layers. Next I inked my Let It Snow in black and stamped on basic white then red, green and red layers. Before assembling I added a blue ribbon with two knots around the card then added the main image and lastly the sentiment. To finish I added a faux border around the outer edges of the card.
