Sending Holly and Jolly

Todays card is a fun one using a stencil 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 and positioned the Flurries stencil over that.
  • I began in the middle of the panel and inked it up with some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink.  I inked on either side of the middle next with some Salty Ocean DOX ink and then some Villainous Potion along the top and the bottom edges.
  • Using the eraser on the end of a pencil, I added some dots into the open areas using the same colours mentioned above.
  • When the panel was dry, I added white dots to the snowflake and then splattered using my white Posca pen.
  • I die cut the sentiment shadow from the center of the card front and then cut the letters from some matching inked cardstock.  I glued the sentiment onto the shadow die cut.
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of purple cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • Finally, I added the sentiment with some foam tape, matching up the inked pattern.

Here is the stencil I used:
