Happy Monday, peeps! It’s good to be back stamping some Christmas creations! Lesley’s challenge today is a great one….check this out:
All those elements together make me think VINTAGE, so I pulled out Winter Post and a beautiful Darice EF to make my card this week:
I started with a Very Vanilla card base, then embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with the snowflake EF. I daubered white craft ink on the raised portions of the embossed piece and then adhered it to the card. I stamped the skaters on a piece of vellum in Chocolate Chip, then cut it out with a Labels die. I then cut a CC frame using the Labels die as well, and stamped some snowflakes around the edge, sponging for a vintage look. The whole shebang was then adhered to the card…can you see the embossed snowflakes through the vellum? I love that look!
I added a piece of the new SU Venetian Crochet Trim with a few little banners:
and then used the cutout from the frame for my inside sentiment:
My last step was to glitter up some of the snowflakes on the front…..a very frosty finish to my card! And since the Catered Crop’s challenge this week is to use vellum, I’m entering this card there as well!
The DT has come up with some gorgeous samples, as usual…I hope you’ll stop by the Merry Monday blog to see them all and share yours with us as well!
One’s reward for helping grammy snap green beans is to get your own so you can make a moustache!
