Let It Snow

Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’re enjoying some cool weather wherever you are! It’s almost Christmas – YAY! This month’s challenge launched this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #17 – December Anything Christmas Goes! I created an adorable Christmas card to add to my stash which features a nice warm pair of mittens with sparkly snowflakes! ;)

I pulled out a very cool paper stack from The Paper Studio called Four Seasons and Everything In Between and created my background from a pretty light teal gingham pattern. The coordinating paper featured a bunch of different Christmas sayings so I cut off a strip of Let It Snow which I placed across the bottom of the front panel.

I adhered the Cottage Cutz Mittens die cut to an oval die cut and rotated it slightly. I thought the snowflakes on the mittens needed some ‘pizzazz’ so I paper-pieced some glitter pieces into them. I added some Neptune and Red Berry Crystal Drops to finish off the front.

I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the paper and cardstock used on the front, then stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches.

One more look… loving how this turned out despite the smeared Red Berry Crystal Drops in one spot. That bottle was a little thicker than the others and the peak dropped and left a smear mark. Darn it – I sure didn’t want to re-make the entire front panel! Sooo, a family member will get this one and we’ll just say it’s not a mistake but a happy accident, lol! ;)
