a happy holiday card

hello friends! 

Well the cool weather we had a few days ago has been replaced with warm, humid weather we usually have down here.  It’s probably close to 80 – and feels warmer.  So, let’s cool down with a clean and simple wintery card!

The main image is from KT Designs and is one I pull out each year.  It’s simple design works well for coloring – either with copics or with pencils.  For this card it was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and  I used only pencils – no solvent to blend the colors together,  just a colorless blending pencil.  You can’t tell from the photo but a stardust gel pen was used to add sparkly accents.

The floral spray in the lower corner was created  using three different Martha Stewart punches.  I punched 3 oak leaves (I think that is what they are) in blue, 2 evergreen branches in green and used the small hydrangea punch in white with a blue rhinestone in the middle. 

A cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder was used for the embossed background.   The sentiment, from Flourishes, was stamped using Memento Danube Blue ink.

Thanks so much for taking time to visit today!
