I had the opportunity to visit with my friend, Darlene, today for some crafting. After helping me with some issues on my laptop, I finally had a chance to work on this card for the challenge at Classy Cards n Such. I used the following die cuts from Dar's dies: "Stacked Mittens" by Poppy Stamps, "Large Snowflake" from Impression Obsession and American Crafts Designer Paper "Hot Cocoa".
I chose the black and white snowflake paper first, then decided to brighten the card up by using the red with white dot paper. Then I placed the big snowflake that Darlene had cut for me and layered the mittens over top. Last I tied a bow with red "Let It Snow" ribbon and adhered that to the top of the mittens.
Although I could use this as a Christmas card, I think I will save it for when the snow hits in January or February and use it to send "Warm Wishes" to someone. Maybe I could include a pack of hot cocoa. In fact, maybe I will fill a mug with Hersey Kisses and a peppermint stick for snowman soup as a gift to someone special.
Now I think I will sit back and have a cup of cocoa and try to get my head to stop spinning from all the things I learned from Darlene today.
Have a great day everyone.
