Warm Winter Wishes!


I know it's not even close to Christmas and this is my second post with Christmas cards this month, but just think how I will be ahead and you can be too!
I am showcasing another of Laurie's sets released this month at Doodle Pantry which is a color version of an earlier set Winter Wishes. You can find the new colored version by clicking here .


I created two cards, the first using the outline which I colored and this second one which uses one of the color schemes along with a sentiment and digital paper from the set. I manipulated the images in Word and after printing it out on white card stock, I layered it with a piece of hunter green card stock on a white card base. I used my stardust spica pen to add glitter to my snow.

On my first card, I used distress inks and copics to color the beautiful winter scene again adding sparkle from my stardust pen. I layered the circle frame of not quite navy over the image and layered both of these on a white card base. I added glitter to the Spellbinder snowflakes, but I am afraid you cannot really see that in the picture.

Be sure and check out the specials and our challenge now going on for Doodle Pantry, you still have time to join in!

Wishing you a wonderful day my friends......
