Winter Hugs

Meet today's card.
I combined 2 new stencils from A Colorful Life Designs with this sweet mitten die one of my boys gave me for Christmas.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of heavy white cardstock and placed it onto my Stencil Mat (I have mentioned this new to me product in previous posts and I am really love it.)
  • I placed the All Over Hearts stencil onto my cardstock and rubbed on some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink.  
  • I removed that stencil and positioned the Delicate Scroll Stencil over the panel and inked with some Blueprint Sketch DOX ink.  I think it gave a look of blowing snow.
  • I splattered with my white Posca pen and set aside to dry.
  • While that dried, I die cut the mittens from some white cardstock.  My son bought them on Amazon so I unfortunately don't know who makes them.
  • I stamped the sentiment with some more Blueprint Sketch ink and clear heat embossed it. I glued that onto a matching cardstock scrap of paper.
  • I glued the stenciled panel onto a piece of light blue cardstock, then onto a white card base.
  • I added foam tape to the back of the mittens and also to the sentiment.

Here are the stencils I used:

I love the hearts and dotty pattern over the top using a couple of stencils and the blue turns work beautifully Karen, and the die cut mittens are perfect with the cut out snowflakes and snowy circles kept in place so all white, a super look. x
