Warm Wishes

Happy Friday!  I had two motivations for today's card: 1) it's getting closer to Christmas so I need quick cards to make (I'm a little behind) and 2) I wanted something cozy.  We've had some cold weather here for the past two days (okay, 52 degrees, but COLD for Southern California!)  So my card fits both those criteria.
The cable knit embossing folder coupled with a plaid that reminds me of flannel is the perfect pairing for the sweater from Ugly But Cute Sweater die.  This card goes together quickly.
I die cut all pieces in white using the sweater from Ugly But Cute Sweater, mittens from Coffee & Cocoa Warm Wishes and snowflake from Season's Greetings w/ Snowflakes dies.
I used markers to color all the pieces except the snowflake.
Then I assembled them.
I embossed an A2 white panel using the cable knit embossing folder and cut a 5 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch panel from the plaid.  I also used a self adhesive sheet and cut "Warm Wishes" from green card stock.
I glues all the pieces down except the sweater which I popped up using foam dots.  After I had it assembled I decided the sentiment didn't stand out enough for my liking so I cut another using gold card stock.  By using the self adhesive sheet under the card stock it was easy to just adhere the gold sentiment over the green one.  I like how it turned out.  It gives the sentiment a little dimensions and you can just see a bit of green shadow!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful and creative weekend!

Adorable card! The embossed background with the plaid is the perfect card base for the "ugly" sweater! I love the pretty colors you used too! I live in Northern CA, so I completely understand "California cold" lol!
