Meet today's card.
I'm trying to make cards that will easily go through the mail without using extra postage. This card uses die-cuts and embellishments but is still pretty flat.
I began by using a leftover piece of inked paper. I had inked up another card and there was ink left on my non-stick craft sheet. Instead of letting it go to waste, I soaked it up with another piece of cardstock and my background was born.
I used a snowflake die from Simon Says and did an embedded die-cut using it. That kept my card surface flat yet added visual interest with the snowflake.
I repeat stamped the sentiment from Penny Black giving it a journal feel.
Using a piece of drywall tape, I stenciled using the same Salty Ocean Distress ink then added some Nuvo to add some dew like water drops. The blue button in the center of the snowflake is flat too but nice and shiny.
Adding my card to these challenges:
