Cold Hands, Warm Heart

Well I have been a bad blogger and not posted for ages, I know everyone says it, but where did August go?!
Today I am sharing a card with one of the gorgeous new LOTV Christmas stamps and this one is called Cold Hands, Warm Heart, I loved this image when it was released and knew it would be perfect for couples cards this Christmas. 
I coloured the image using Distress Markers onto watercolour card and then added some faux snow using a white gel pen. I inked around the image and matted up with some brown card stock and lovely nordic papers. The sentiment is also from LOTV, I love their handwritten sentiments, they just go with everything. Needless to say I had to have the everyday and the Christmas ones! 
I used a pretty snowflake die cut and finished with some ribbon, buttons, gems and twine. 

Products Used:
  • Stamp and sentiment stamp - Lili of the Valley
  • Distress Markers - Tim Holtz 
  • Papers - First Edition - Nordic Christmas
  • Ribbon - The Ribbon Girl
