Meet today's card.
It came together quickly as I used a previous inked background that I created with acrylic paint on my Gel Plate.  I used some bubble wrap to lift the colour from the plate that you can see in the background.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • Like I mentioned above, the blue background was done on my Gel Plate.  I brayered some blue and green acrylic paint onto the plate, then pressed some bubble wrap over that, lifting the colour and leaving a fun impression behind.  
  • I splattered over the gel print with my white Posca paint pen and while that dried, I die cut the Dancing Snowflake Square from some white cardstock. (my finished card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4")
  • I cute the gel print to size and glued it onto a square card base.  I glued the die cut snowflakes over that.
  • While that dried, I cut a few extra little snowflakes and glued them over the front panel to add more interest and to help fill in some of the open areas.
  • I die cut the sentiment from more white cardstock 3 times and then glued them together and onto my card front.  
  • To finish off my card, I glued on 3 little pearl gems.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

So bright and beautiful Karen, and I love the contrast with the pretty white snowflake frame and the three layer die cut sentiment stands out the three little pearls too. x
