Humble Artrist's Swap

I am finally able to post the card I made for the Humble Artist's Swap I host. This card was for the Dec 10, 2012 swap date.

Here are the Guidelines the group had to follow:

Create a WINTER themed card
You may NOT use any Green; Red; or Blue
You must use 5 embellishments
Add some sparkle or shine
You must emboss something
You must have 8 layers stacked on top of one another, somewhere on your card
Your card should be at least 4 ¼ x 5 ½

I used Blush; Colonial White; Slate and Whisper cardstock. The Whisper cardstock was embossed with a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder, then embossed with clear embossing powder.

I stamped with Universal Backgrounds on the Slate cardstock, then used a retired set to stamp kiss the mittens. I also used the same stamp in second generation Blush, on the sentiment strip. The sentiment is from Pear & Partridge Card WOTG kit.

I added Silver Shimmer Trim; Slate Polka Dot ribbon; Grey Wool Baker's Twine; a Colonial Whie Brad and Clear Sparkles. I added some Stardust Glitz to the mittens.

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.

  1. Ooooh! I love how you did the mittens. I have to admit, they aren't my favorite shape. They lack "puffiness" or something, but this makes them look elegant rather than "not cute enough."


I love reading your comments, Thank You!
