Oh my goodness! It's been way too long since I last posted! Sorry about that. You know how life sometimes gets in the way. Plus, I've been using any spare time I have for crafting to work on submissions for the current call at Paper Crafts. I'm making Halloween cards. :-). So fun! Anyway, I finally got a chance to make a card for a few challenges. Since the snow just won't go away it's a Christmas card. Well, I would have made it regardless of the snow. :-). Speaking of snow we are going to have a blizzard today. At the end of March!! We haven't had a blizzard all winter. What is up with this weather?! So. Tired. Of. Snow. Anyway, back to a more pleasant subject. Here's my card..
So, I used some hoarded birch bark paper I got from Michaels and stamped my evergreen bough (Inkadinkado) several times in forest moss distress ink and mellow moss dye ink by SU!. Then I added some highlighting and shading using my white gel pen and and a dark green alcohol marker. Next I stamped my sentiment (Hero Arts) in black StazOn. I used two of my clear snowflakes from my box that I found at the Dollarama. I added some clear glitter to the top and using an oil base sharpie pen coloured the bottom silver. This made it show up a bit more. Once I attached my panel to my brown card base and adhered the snowflakes I felt like it was missing something. So I added a bit of jute twine to the bottom. Quite pleased with the results.
I am linking up to the following challenges:
Festive Friday #27 - here's the inspiration photo. It's so pretty!
Jingle Belles - the theme is "the Holly and the ivy". Create a card with any kind of festive foliage.
Addicted to Stamps and More - it's their "Holiday" challenge again.
That's all for now. I'm going to try and get into my craft room and make some more cards. Thanks for visiting and hope you have a blizzard free day!
