Celebrate The Season
I am getting anxious! My Christmas cards are coming together too slowly! Here is one for a family member that I managed to make yesterday and I used one of the sketches from the current Hero Arts contest.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah
Ink: Iced Spruce & Evergreen Bough distress ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (AR159; CL343)
Other: various gems; Wonky Rectangle Spellbinders die; dimensional foam adhesive
I was not intending to go monochromatic, but it turned out that way and I like it.
I stamped a white piece of cardstock with three different snowflakes using Iced Spruce and some 2nd generation stamping every now and then. I then used the negative piece from my die cut, inked up its edges with Iced Spruce and adhered that over the white panel using dimensional adhesive.
A little bit of bling in the centre of the snowflakes, a sentiment strip using Evergreen Bough distress ink and that was the card finished.
Thanks for popping in! Have an awesome day!
