  I don't know about you, but 2022 was an awful year to live through.  So many things happened to our family.  We lost our matriarch, my husband was diagnosed with a terrible illness, and I lived through my first hurricane...Ian.  So here's to 2023!

I have new craft space for the new year, thanks to my hubby...the hurricane destroyed my last space.  grrrr

When I started this card, I had another vision of it in mind.  But most of my craft supplies are still unfound, in the containers that they were placed in after being saved from the hurricane.  So instead of inking the panel and going all out, I had to keep it simple.  

I uploaded Winter Deer by SheepSki Design to my Silhouette software to create the card front.  I used the larger Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die to cut the panel to size.    I realized that his image paired perfect Gina K Designs Winter Cheer and Christmas Wishes stamp sets.  I bought the card kit in 2014 which included the stamps.  

I stamped the Winter Cheer greeting in Versafine Onyx Black ink, which is my favorite stamping ink.  

After attaching the panel on a card base made with Gina K Luxury cardstock (also from the stamp kit), I used a glue pen to add Stickles dry glitter.  

The inside panel was created from white cardstock from the stamp kit, stamped with trees from the Christmas Wishes stamp set in Papertrey soft stone ink.  

For some interest, I added a hint of the same glitter that was used on the card front.
