Wrap up warm with a chock full of Cheer


This is a very appropriate card to post today as we have had our first snow fall of the year.

Brrrr it's very cold, wish I'd had these mitts on when I was out.  I'm still in denial about winter but the old woolys are going to have to surface! 

My card uses Stampin' Up!'s fabby Chock Full of Cheer set.  The base is Pool Party card with lots of mittens randomly stamped.  Then a panel of Island Indigo and Whisper White.  I inked up the mitten stamp with Island Indigo then removed ink from the middle stripe using a Blender Pen.  I re added ink in Pool Party.  It gives a super effect to the mittens, just like your Granny would knit!  Only not out of itchy wool!!

One was stamped direct to the panel the other was stamped and cut out then attached with a Dimensional after adding some Island Indigo Bakers Twine.  Do you remember when your mittens were tied with wool up one sleeve and down the other? 

The rest is just some simple decoration using the border stamp in the set.  I carried the decoration onto the bottom strip of card along with the sentiment.  I corner rounded the top corners of the panel and the card. 

Here's our snowy scene from earlier today. 



Go look out your mitts, keep warm and stay cosy crafting. x
