Merry and Bright

Hello and Welcome
Posting a few last minute cards.  
I ran out of time after being so busy with my daycare kids and having the stomach flu.  

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I pulled out a piece of Yupo paper, my salad spinner and some Alcohol inks.  **For any of you that missed my 'Salad Spinner Alcohol inks' video, you can see it HERE.
  • After creating my background with the Alcohol inks, I glued on the snowflakes that I had die cut from the Blizzard Corner with some white cardstock. It cuts a corner but I altered it to fit cover the panel.
  • When I was happy with the design, I die cut a circle from the center and set it aside.
  • I glued the AI inked panel onto a heavy white card base, then pop dotted the circle back into place, matching up the snowflakes.
  • I cut another circle from some white cardstock, smaller then the first one, stamped the sentiment onto that, then glued them together.
  • I added 3 silver gems under the sentiment. 

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

I love the spun AI background Karen and the colours are so bright and pretty and the die cut snowflakes over the top in white stand out beautifully, also a great design feature cutting a circle fom the whole piece and raised up for added dimension with your sentiment circle on top, and the silver gems finish it perfectly. I will be searching out a cheap salad spinner to give this a try. x

WOW! This is really bright and so beautiful with the mix of colours Karen. Loving the spinned AIs and will have to get myself a spinner to play along. So sorry to hear you had the stomach flu (me too). Hope you are fully recovered and are enjoying the holidays! xx
