AIRs Project of Choice "A Warm Winter Card"

For this challenge I am doing an all occasion "winter" card.  I've used a combination of really gorgeous papers from Authentique, DCWV and a wooden embellishment from Monterey Pine.  I found the most adorable stamps with matching "tin pins" at my LSS the other day so I thought I'd throw a little of that in too.
All together it makes for a truly cutsie little card.  If you are interested in making some winter cards using scraps and cute stamps just scroll down for the mini tutorial.

Here is a list of the products I used to make this:

IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Supplies
Staz-On Jet Black Ink, Memento LUXE Mixed Media Pigment Ink in Love Letter red, Memento pens in Teal Zeal, Dandelion yellow, Tangelo orange and Lady Bug red, GooseBumps
Rubber Stamps
Snowman and phrase by Darcie’s heart & home stamps
Other Supplies
Authentique  papers “Glistening” and “Joyous” Collections, DCWV textured paper, Monterey Pine Oval wooden embellishment, Copic pens, Baker’s Twine, self-adhesive pearl,  Flat back “tin pin” embellishments for the face made by Darcie Heater Designs Warm & Toasty, adhesive, photo corners, tissue tape, 5” BY 7” blank white card, heat gun.
Stamp snowman on white paper; color in image, cut out with small scissors.  Glue “tin pin” on head with strong adhesive and set aside. 

Color Monterey Pine oval wooden embellishment with red ink, heat set.  Stamp phrase on oval with black ink, heat set.  Coat the top with GooseBumps and set aside to dry.
Cut red paper to fit the front of the card.  Cut a piece of DCWV white textured card stock.  Cut another piece of black & white paper and a small piece of blue polka dot paper.

Glue red paper to card, adhere white paper, black and white patterned paper and powder blue panel.  Use a little bit of glue to glue down the tissue tape scrap.  Using strong adhesive glue down the snowman.  Wrap the baker’s twine around the finger of the large hand, then glue down the hand allowing the twine to dangle. 

Glue the wooden oval on top of the twine.  Affix a pearl to the sleeve and glue the photo corners to each bottom corner of the white paper.

I hope you like it!  It is always a good thing to have several blank, all occasion cards on hand.  I hope you're having a great week.  Thanks for stopping by, your visits mean a lot to me.  Take care~ Renee
