Baby, it's cold outside

Well, it's not cold here quite yet. But then it usally doesn't get super cold here anyway. My winter coat is a fleece type coat from Target and I suppose I'll have to dig out some cold weather shoes soon. I do bundle the kids up like we live in the arctic.

This card is based on Michelle Wooderson's Holiday Card Making 101 card that I saw on Nichole Heady's blog. The PTI design team made holiday cards that are good for mass production and gave detailed instructions (measurements) so you can easily re-create them. My card is basically the same layout as Michelle's but I used different colors. The sentiment is from a $1 studio G clear stamp set that I found at AC Moore today. I added a scallop border using my new Embossed Scallop edge punch by Martha Stewart. AC Moore had most of Martha's Christmas stuff out, and there were only 2 of these punches left. To even further make my day, I got to use a 50% off coupon on the punch. Yipee! The sentiment stamped in red looks better in person--it doesn't stand out like it does in the photo. Next time I will stamp it in chocolate chip. I originally planned to have more red on this card but changed my mind. I decided to just go with it. I used liquid applique for the foam.
Supplies: PTI warm happiness, Basic Gray figgy pudding dsp, PTI white, spring moss and spring moss ribbon. SU celery ink. Versamagic red ink. MS embossed scallop edge punch. Nestabilities.
