Holiday Hugs

Hey stampers, Anni here!

Here is my last post on the Seven Hills Crafts blog for 2017. The shop closed yesterday until 27th of December.
And my last card for this year is - surprise, surprise -  a Christmas card.

I kept the colour scheme pretty monochromatic and went with shades of turquoise and grey - cool colours for a cool season.

I started by stamping, colouring with coloured pencils and fussy cutting the super cute bear hugging a girl from W Plus 9' Holiday Hugs.

To create the background I die cut a rectangle using Waffle Flower's Lacy Layers. I added some ink blending in aqua and some splotches of pink ink. I also created splotches of glitter. By accident I discovered that this works great with the Varnsih Marker. It is a liquid that is easy to spill. Then you can sprinkle glitter on it and it will glue to it.

For the sentiment I used Mama Elephant's Puffy Holiday Greetings. I heat embossed it in grey on a scrap of white cardstock.
Then I assembled the card using  grey cardbase.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2018!
