Today’s card is a Winter card instead of a Christmas one. The weather has turned colder even here in the South. It is now sweater weather and the paper used reminds me of a sweater pattern. Additionally this card is for the Make My Monday Challenge and that is for a Winter card.

My idea for the Winter card came from the piece of DSP. It is from the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper. This pattern is a sweater pattern to me. This soft blue is different than all of the Christmas cards I have been making. But also is the color of cold ! This lead to an almost monochromatic card.
After deciding on paper I went looking for a stamp to match. I immediately thought of the All Bundled Up stamp set where the sweet critters are all wearing scarves. By using the sweet little cardinal, it allows a lot more of the DSP to shine. The cardinal is stamped and colored with Stampin’ Blends. And to add some additional stamping, I added the snowflakes as well as a bit of “snow” on the ground. A few squiggles of Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend is all it took.
To complete my warm sweater card, I added one of the Wonderful Snowflakes to the mix. The iridescent shine is perfect. And just a few of the Fine Sparkle Gems scattered around completed the card. Even though I put more than an odd number of them. I can never get that correct 🙂
