Frosty Fun!

The joy of the holidays is still going strong at our house. I just love having everyone home!.The added excitement of having a baby in the house again has made this an amazing Christmas. Here they all are on Christmas morning.


We are truly blessed to have such wonderful children and are spending this week enjoying every minute we can with them, so for this week's Dreamweaver Stencil challenge I am going to share a very simple card that I may have shown before. It makes a wonderful thank you note for all the wonderful gifts you received!

The steps are so easy:
  • Dry emboss the mittens (LJ923) on white cardstock either with a light box and stylus or through a die cut machine
  • With the mitten stencil still in place over the embossed design, lay the Plaid stencil (LX7002) at an angle over the mittens
  • Use a large stencil brush to brush on your lighter color (the purple on mine), be sure to do the strings too
  • Remove the plaid stencil and clean it
  • Place the plaid stencil back over the mittens crossing over the opposite direction
  • Use a large stencil brush to brush on your second color
  • Remove and clean both stencils
  • Mount on coordinating colored mats for a fun wintery card!
Don't miss the rest of the teams' ideas too. Just click on their names below.

Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year!
Happy Creating,
Louise
