Sugar Nellie - Knitted With Love

- Hello Sugar Fans -
Good morning to you all on this lovely summer's day.
Well it's Wednesday and Sugar Nellie day.....yay!!  The summer has definitely been shining here, in fact we had a heat wave last week, and I know us Brits tend to complain about the weather...but I have to say, it was way too hot for me. Sooooorry!  So cool myself down I decided to make a Christmas card he, he, he!!! To be honest I've been waiting for an excuse to use this little cutie for ages - this gorgeous rubber stamp is called Knitted With Love and its available from Funkykits.

Here's What I Did
Firstly I die cut a scalloped circle card base from an existing white card base (it saves time and much easier to do). Next I stamped my image onto some white card stock and die cut it into a circle; this was then matted onto some red and teal card and attached to the card base. I stamped the image again onto colouring card stock and colour it with Copic pens, and then fussy cut it out. I attached the cut out image to the card base using foam tape to give dimension.

To finish off I added a few glitter dots around the image, a die cut snowflake and some glitter.

Ha ha, I am trying not to complain about the heat since it's nice to have proper Summer weather but it has been VERY hot on a couple of days! I have been cooling down by eating ice cream but maybe I should try the Christmas card making...less calories - lol!

Your card design is absolutely gorgeous; a really pretty colour combo and so cute with that scalloped base :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
