I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I stamped the heart stitching at the top and bottom from the Smitten Mittens Stamp Set. I used Powder Pink Ink. Then, I started the layers with Powder Pink measuring 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″. At the top, I layered on a piece of Champagne Foil measuring 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ and then Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Paper (3″ x  3″). Using a nice 3″ square for the Designer Paper makes perfect use of the 12″ x 12″ sheet! I love not having scraps left over because I’m not the best at using them up later.

For the greeting at the bottom, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 1-1/4″ x 3-1/4″. Next, I stamped the mittens and greeting in Powder Pink. These are all from the Smitten Mittens Stamp Set. I’m not going to lie, it took me a few minutes to make sure I was stamping the mittens correctly and not backwards. 🙂 After stamping, I added this to the bottom portion of the Powder Pink. Using some Powder Pink Ribbon, I tied it around the spot where the 2 papers meet and into a knot. Then I added this piece to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little texture!

I love the soft look of this. I think it would look stunning in Fresh Fig or Elegant Eggplant as well. It makes a great winter card for any occasion! What would you use this card for? Winter? Christmas? Valentine’s Day? Change the greeting to Birthday, etc? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Stampin’
