Morning. Try as I might, I could not get a decent photo of this card no matter what I did. So here it is. I was playing along with this challenge at Splitcoast and happy to be able to get another holiday card done. It is going to be here before we know it.
I am in love with this snowflake die from Lawn Fawn and can't seem to stop using it! I love vintage feeling holiday cards and this stencil feels vintage to me. I wanted to try and use some non-traditional colours, so went with beige tone Distress inks. I placed the stencil on my paper and rubbed Antique Linen Distress ink over it then shifted the stencil so slightly and added a darker tone of Distress ink using Brushed Corduroy. By using the 2 colours together it gave a nice warm tone to my background.
Next, I centred my snowflake die onto my card front and cut it out. I cut out 3 additional snowflakes in white and glued them one on top of each other so I would have a raised snowflake when I replaced it into the cut area on my card. I added the half pearl to the centre and stamped the sentiment.
