Don't Open 'til Dec. 25


Popping in with another fun project that I created using the new stamp set

"" WINTER MITTENS ""

by
Nina Brackett

available at

Gina K Designs

I used a total of 5 different stamps to create this card

Large and Small Snowflakes were stamped using white ink onto the front & back of my Kraft cardstock, Something Special Sentiment stamped in real red onto a scalloped tag, the Oval Snowflake text box was stamped onto white cardstock and cut out using an oval die. I used a red Copic Marker to put a tiny red dot onto each scallop. I then stamped the Do Not Open Until Dec. 25 Sentiment inside the text box

Can you tell that the red package and the Something Special Tag are both 3 dimensional?
They were mounted using thick foam squares


Here is a closer look at the tiny Gift Bow that I created
(so simple that I will never again purchase a flimsy store bought bow)

CHALLENGES I USED:
Crazy 4 Challenges: Christmas
Fresh Brewed Challenge: 2 or more Patterned Papers
Cute Card Thursday: Anything Goes
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Just Do It = Christmas Cards
Mark's Finest Papers: Use Snowflakes
Sweet Stampin: Snowflakes
Totally Gorjuss: Traditional Christmas Colors
