Happy New Year friends!! I had hoped to create a 2021 celebratory card but my back had other ideas. I spent my final days of 2020 horizontal...and not in a fun way. *wink* While I was unable to craft, I was able to read and catch up on crafty YouTube videos so all was not lost.
I also had hoped to finish out the year with a few more challenge cards but alas, that just wasn't going to happen. Today's card is one that I started for the final Tic Tac Toe challenge of 2020. The line trio I chose were Green, Wink of Stella and Stocking. I was able to finish it up yesterday (after the deadline) but no matter. I am so in love with it and will tuck it away until December 2021.
I die cut the mitten stockings and mice from various colors of cardstocks, adding a bit of white heat embossing to the stockings for interest. I assembled them and adhered them to my all time favorite stamped background. (Look familiar? I did a white on black this time instead of black on white. Look at me branching out. ROFL!) I then adhered the panel to a white card base. As a final touch I added some Wink of Stella to the mitten cuffs and some sparkly glitter glue to the stocking caps. I think this card is adorable, if I may say so myself. :-)
I am mulling over the idea of jumping in to some year long Christmas card challenges. I normally only create a single mass produced design for my personal use along with Christmas tags but I have so many holiday designs that see little to no use. Sad and shameful. What would be your recommendations?
It's a New Year! Continue to stay safe and healthy my friends.
