Hi everyone. Today I made my first Christmas card of the year ... never too early to start, right??!! :)
The snowflakes were done with Brushos Colour Crystals ... my plan was to play with them today and I did!! Love the vibrant and intense colours of these watercolours. The snowflakes above are done on watercolour paper, but I experimented with regular card stock and with glossy, and they each have a different look. I'll use them on future cards. So fun to play! :)
I used a vellum strip to keep the card looking very clean, heat embossing the sentiment in white.
I made the card for a few challenges ...
First up, the challenge at Merry Monday (#140) to use a snowflake(s) on your card. This was my jumping off point. Here's the inspiration picture for Merry Monday ... doesn't it look yummy!!
I also used the sketch from STAMPlorations (#25), and used Stamps and Ink so I can enter their January challenge as well - bonus!!
This is also a good example of a clean slate card for Virginia's View #11 challenge. I have the feeling most of my cards will fit this category! :) Lots of white space on this one.
It is a winter card, so perfect for the challenge at Just Us Girls (#274) where the word is "Winter".
And this is for the SCS (Splitcoast Stampers) CAS Challenge (#306 - white + one colour).
Another multi-challenge card ... I'm on a roll:)
