Be Merry Card by November Guest Designer Kelly Latelova


Hello Crafters! 
Happy Monday! 
It's been a crazy weekend here. 
It rained for 16 hours straight and then conveniently turned into a smallish blizzard. 
Ohio weather, Honestly.

Since we were having such fantastic winter weather I was feeling a bit more in the Christmas spirit. 
How could I not be with these adorable Santa Paws looking me in the face?!

First I wanted to show you that I did not actually ruin my Stencil with last week's glimmer paste lol. 
It worked perfectly to create a night sky for this card. 
I laid down a light layer of distress ink then laid the stencil on and covered it with a heavier layer of the same colors. This tone on tone look is simple but really creates a lot of interest.

The second thought was to stick with traditional Christmas colors and effortless coloring. Usually when I color I use 4 colors. Not this time. 
It was actually really hard for me to keep it to two markers haha! 
However, I know not everyone has the markers I have so I wanted to show you that you can still get awesome results without  crazy amount of markers.

I loved pairing the Christmas Delivery with this Santa Paws. I think they make such a cute scene for a playful Christmas card! Don't you? 

There will be a video for this card later in the week I just ran out of time guys. Sorry!
Thanks for hanging out with me!
