Holiday Greetings

Good Morning
I have to confess...once I start creating my Christmas/holiday cards, I can't stop!!
This card features 2 new stencils from A Colorful Life Designs called

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I placed a piece of white cardstock onto my Make Art Station.
  • I positioned the Prim Snowflake stencil over my cardstock, secured that and then added the Star Ring stencil over that being sure to line up both stencils layered together.  Then, I inked over both stencils using some Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink.
  • I removed just the Star Ring stencil, leaving the snowflake in placed and inked over that with some Peacock Feathers DOX ink and a hint of the Villainous Potion just in the center of the snowflake.
  • After I was happy with the inking, I added some ink along the outer edges of the panel to bring it more to life.
  • I die cut the sentiment from some purple cardstock and then the sentiment shadow die from the center of the card front panel.
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of blue cardstock and then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • I glued the sentiment over the shadow and then popped it back into place over the main panel using some foam tape.
  • Last step was to add silver gems around the sentiment.

Here are the stencils I used:

This snowflake is so pretty Karen and I love the added dots which are glimpsed through the snowflake design, and the purple and blue you used are lovely. A beautiful card and finished perfectly with the purple die cut sentiment. x
