Pretty Little Studio: Baby It's Cold Outside

Saturday, December 15, 2018

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  We've already begun the Christmas festivities with my hubby's work Christmas party last night, and they're going to continue all weekend with candy making and cookie baking.  We're also having some friends over for dinner tonight, so there's plenty of cleaning and cooking to be done.  We only have three more days of school before Christmas break and can't wait to wrap up our midterm exams and begin to really enjoy the season.  Okay, enough of my excited rambling, I stopped in today to share a festive card that happens to be up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today.  It utilizes a mix of different collections, but most of what you'll recognize comes from Home for Christmas.
I started this card by anchoring a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Magical Lights print, to the white, cardstock, card face, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  I then adhered a trio of Snowflakes Vellum Die Cuts, as well as the glittered, Home for Christmas Die-Cut fence (Tip: When adhered behind another object, cut your die cuts to extend their reach.  No one will ever know.  Shh.), across the background.  Sparkler was then popped up, in the center of the design, with foam tape.  A Wood Partridge Vintage Sticker, backed with white cardstock and hand-cut out, perches on his "MERRY CHRISTMAS" sign with foam tape.
A "baby it's cold outside" Joy Die Cut was popped up, with foam tape, just below his sign.  I love the way it brings a little of the blue from the snowflakes to the bottom of the card and balances out the colors of the design perfectly.
A trio of Home for Christmas Die-Cut snowflakes, a couple of which were popped up with foam tape, as well as the same number of With Glee Die-Cut music notes, popped up with more foam tape and given a dose of shine with Glossy Accents, complete the look.
Thanks so much for visiting!  Enjoy your weekends, friends!  XOXO
