Snowy Christmas Night ... Take 2


Hi everyone.  Made this card last week, but only finding a little time now to post it ... life has been very busy! :)

Here's a CASE of a card I made a while back for Speed Challenge #2.  I didn't time myself for this card ... but I'm pretty sure I was over the 10 minutes mark again :) I changed up the design slightly, making a smaller panel and having more white space. I also used a smaller sentiment ... and two trees that I had in my "extras" box (always good to use up some of those!).  :)

I do like this design and color combo and so wanted to make another Christmas card (this one will get donated).  Supplies are listed below ... for how to's please check my original card HERE.

There's a new challenge up at Speed Challenge (#3) ... haven't had time to play yet, but I'm hoping to soon.  Hope you'll check out this fun challenge ... there are amazing inspiration cards made by the design team!







Stamps:  Joyful Greetings (Paper Smooches); Snowflake stamp from Patterned Pines set (SU)
Paper:  White (Neenah); silver foilglimmer (SU!)
Ink:  Peacock Feathers (Tim Holtz Distress); Versamark
Accessories & Tools:  Frostyville Border die (Memory Box); Holiday Cheer dies (Sizzix), sponge, Musical Flourish embossing folder (Cuttlebug), silver cording

LOVE IT! But then I always do. Embossing the tiny silver trees really made them shine from this card. Great snowflake border against your marbled icy blues and the silver cording drew the eye upward. Really like that background. TFS & Hugs. Hope life is not getting 'too' stressful.

This is so pretty, Loll! I wish I could get my sponging to look so smooth! I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've watched you sponge on your video and it looks so easy. Then I try it and it's all mottled! I guess practice makes perfect!

That background just blows me away, girl! And those embossed trees...WOW! Love this!
