Chilly Celebrations!



Hello my crafty friends, it is time for another cut it challenge at My Paper Crafting.  We were asked to use the theme "chilly celebrations" and since my anniversary is in February so I went with a card that will do double duty, an anniversary/Valentine card for my hubby.  I used Melin's digital stamp, Love Is...1 Corinthians 13, I printed and then cut out my sentiment with a Spellbinder Nestability then while my sentiment was still in the Nestie, I sponged around the edge with Antique Linen distress ink and a little Tattered Rose distress ink, then cut another mat with a  Spellbinder and mounted the sentiment ontop. I popped both layers on foam tape. My roses came from the Cricut CTMH Artiste cartridge. I cut them on white paper at 3" and 2"and inked them with.  Punched some black paper with my Martha Steward branch punch and placed under my roses. I also used a die to cut my scallop border.  I used a white Viva Pearl Pen to make two smaller pearls and one large pearl and some stickles on my roses.  My ribbon is seam binding.  My card size is 5x7 and I used a Mojo sketch number 276. All papers are from my scrap bin except for my card base. I hope you join us this week for our "chilly celebrations" and if you need a little inspiration go to My Paper Crafting and check out the super "chilly celebrations" projects my design team sisters have done and don't forget to leave them some bloggy love! Happy Craftin'!!
