ThINKin' About Christmas: Card 2

Onto the second card from our Christmas class. This one features the mitten builder and new "Illuminate" ink pad.

There is a little bit of a trick to punching the second mitten if you want them facing opposite direction. First I stamped the double mitten stamp and punched out the easy side. Then, I stamped the double mitten again and this time I held it up to the light and made a rough outline of where the edges of the mitten were. This allowed me to flip my paper over and punch out the other mitten.

Also, do you see the shiny image in the background? It was done with the new Illuminate ink pad. It is essentially a watermark pad (like the versamark) but with some sparkle and shine added to it. It is hard to see in the picture, but in person it is gorgeous! Here's a little bit of a closeup:

Are you inspired to start making up your Christmas cards yet? I hope so! Flutterback on friday for another Christmas card idea.

Pin It!
