The crisp, cool sweater weather has arrived. I am always reminded of this great stencil from Tim Holtz when I think Winter and hot chocolate.
I began by stenciling the panel using Candied Apple and Fired Brick Distress inks and cut it to fit onto my card front on a slant. I stamped the sentiment from the new Penny Black set called Yuletide Wishes with black Memento ink then heat embossed it with clear powder. I like to do that with my sentiments as it helps to darken the colour and makes it stand out a bit more.
I die-cut the snowflake from Lawn Fawn twice and glued them together to add stability and glued them into the corner of my tilted piece.
The finishing touch was to add a red half pearl into the center of the snowflake.
Adding my card to these challenges:
