Warmest winter wishes - Monika and Billie

Monday December 18, 2017
 
Hi everyone.. I have a card to share. Monika and I have been doing a challenge between the two of us and last month was my challenge for her.. This month is her challenge for me.. Creative with Monika  I love her challenge for me. She knows my weakness and challenges me to create.. So her challenge for our card was Masculine Christmas card with stamped background...
So I thought would I get this to my daughter or son.. and I had a friend over and when I was done with my card I asked her would you give this to your son or daughter... she said for sure her son. So this is my masculine /background stamped Christmas card. I took Simon said stamp and Stampin up ink and created the background. (thank goodness for the Misti) I took a scrap of Quick quote paper and My Favorite Things stitch die and cut the circle. I then stamped Simon Says mittens and more SU ink and fussy cut the mittens out. I added a piece of yarn behind. I used a Paper Trey Ink sentiment and a few Nuvo drops. So this is my masculine /background stamped card. Head over to Monika's blog and see her awesome card.
