Warm and Toasty

Warm and Toasty

I'm straying a bit from the Valentine's cards today.  I guess I was inspired by the weather some of us here in North America have been dealing with.  Believe me, shaker snow is a pleasure, real snow, not my favorite!
This card features Rectangular Stamps Cutables and  Miss Ewe digital stamp from the February release as well as Snowflake and Nested Hearts Cutables from a previous release.

Miss Ewe Digi

I started this card by printing and cutting the ewes from white cardstock using a Silhouette.  I used the mirror object  function to flip one of them horizontally before printing.  They were colored with Copic markers.

I wanted to try paper piecing again and this time got it to work.   To do this, I used the eraser tool to isolate the scarf.  I mirrored this image (actually several times to have extras just in case.   Using the mirror tool after everything was erased made it much easier.

I printed the scarves on polka dot paper and then repeated the offset process and cut the scarfs with no problem.  I did a little fussy cutting to clean up the edges of the scarves.

To complete the card,  Rectangular Stamp was sized and cut to  served as a mat for the flat shaker.  Mica flakes and a few sequins make up the snow.  A few snowflakes were cut and placed next, then the ewes.  Little hearts seemed appropriate for the sweet sentiment that was printed, cut and matted.
Thanks for taking a look!  Stay tuned for more of the February release from the Cat Pack.  Stay warm and take care.
