Warm and Cozy

Hi everyone, it is the last Tuesday of the month so today is the beginning of the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team’s monthly Blog Hop.  If you'd like a chance at winning a prize, be sure to leave a comment on each blog along the hop by Friday - there is a $25 gift certificate up for grabs for one random commenter!  The blog hop will remain open for comments from 8am EST on Tues. Aug. 27th through Fri. Aug. 30th at midnight.


Recently, I saw a tutorial on how to do a sweater card which I thought would work beautifully with this Heartfelt Creations sentiment.  Plus, it gave me a reason to dig out my old crimper.  I started with the Frosty Blanket Paper Collection cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  The ribbing is 1/2" wide.  The pocket is attached to a regular card which gives lots of room inside for a message.  The flower 'pin' was cut from the paper.  I'll have to look for another embossing folder that looks more like a sweater texture;  this was all I had available today.


Most of the image was colored with stickles; after all, it's just not Christmas without glitter!  I also used a little bit of puff paint and colored pencils.
