get ready to sing it with me!

good morning!
today i have a super sweet and soft card to share using the new Newton's Nook Designs stamp set Winter Tails!! :) i'm also on the Newton's Nook blog today, so check that out too! :)

ok, so let's get to it, shall we?

awww! yes, so sweet, right? i colored the little kitties with copics, then fussy cut them out. the cat on the left was mirror stamped first, and then when i went to place them on the card, i did some mirror-masking to get them up close and cuddling! :)

the background was SUPER fun to make!
i used a white piece of cardstock and some gesso. first i crumpled up a piece of paper towel and dabbed it into the gesso then dabbed that over my white card base. i kept it towards the middle of the card, and a very light coating. once it was dry (literally 5 minutes), i smooshed my old paper distress ink onto my kraft mat, spritzed it with water and laid my card into the watery puddle! it was SO COOL! the gesso acted as a resist. i wasn't expecting that, exactly, it was a super happy accident! one i'll definitely recreate!

anyway, then i heat embossed in white the snowflakes from that same stamp set. then sentiment was made with alpha tabs and then stitched on to the card base. then the whole card base was popped up with foam tape over a soft strip of mint triangle washi! :)

i really LOVE this card!
hope it made you smile! and if you're anything like me, the song (let it snow) is stuck in your head too! ha ha!
