Hello!  For today’s tutorial, I have another winter scene card using the second little piggy from the same Hello Bluebird Merry Pigs stamp set shared earlier in the week.  The sentiment is from Warm Wishes.  The stitched background scene frame was created with Memory Box Snowy Tree Circle die set and Cosmic Shimmer Glitter texture paste.  I also added sparkles to the presents with Wink of Stella -Clear.  Is there such a thing as too much glitter?

    This post is also part of my Cards for Little Hearts’ Winter-Theme & Holiday Cards CollectionThis collection runs from October 1st – November 1st.  We still have 2 week to go.  Please consider sending in a card or two and help us bring joy and comfort to heart patients this holiday season.   For the complete guidelines, please check out Cards for Little Hearts’ website.
