A Merry Little Christmas To You

Good Morning Everyone! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a great week. I'd love to hear from you, so please take a moment to say hello! This is the 1st of a 22 or 24 Christmas cards set that I will be making for my daughter in law to give her coworkers. This card features The Cutting Cafe mittens from The Christmas All Around Set. I know Regina went to great pains to put the cute little snowflakes on the mittens but I had to cover them up :( . I recolored them and it looked like it would match the paper. I didn't realize it didn't until I got ready to put the card together. I guess my eyes are a little foggy this morning...sorry Regina! Rather than trash it I covered the snowflakes with the star from the Cuttlebug Treetop 3 x 3 Combo Set, and that by itself would have been OK but you could still see some of the outline so I layered the star onto a small circle. Not real pleased with it but it is better than trashing it. Anyway...here it is---Here is the recipe---
Card Size: A2
Stamps/Image: Cutting Cafe-Christmas All Around, Christmas Circles Set 2
Cuttlebug: Snowflake Die, Treetop 3 x 3 Combo Set, Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Nestabilities: Circle, Scallop
Punches: EK Diamond Scallop Edge
Accessories: Ribbon, Craft Yarn, Flat Back Pearls, Foam Pop Dots

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day and I will see you next time!

It's very pretty and soothing. I wish my mistakes would turn out like yours. I hate it when I get my card all but finished, and I get this bright idea to add one more little something and then the card is ruined.

TFS,
