Hi, everyone! Today I played along with a couple of challenges to create this wonderful winter card! It has been so hot out lately so I need to make something to bring me back to the good ol’ days of winter. Muse: Christmas Visions is the perfect challenge for today. If you haven’t seen their site go check them out! I also used a sketch from MFT. I also created this card with my girlfriend in mind. She was complaining about the heat earlier so I wanted to make something to brighten up her day!
I used a side folding A2 sized white card base as my starting point. Then I used a blue ink pad to give a pice of white paper the look of frosted glass. I’ve never done this technique before but I think it’s going to be hdeone of my favorites for winter themed cards this year.I stamped the sentiment in black ink onto the panel then popped it up with some foam tape. Then I used a circle die to cut out some patterned vellum to act as a backdrop for my metal snowflake brad. I love the different elements of this card, they all seemed to go together perfectly. Below are links to both challenges as well as a list of supplies I used!
