Hi everyone! Today we have a new Card Concept challenge...check out this warm wintery vignette:
Cute! Unfortunately, there has been NO SNOW in my neck of the woods at ALL this winter--one of the warmest on record! So I have had to get all my inspiration from these fun papers that I've been hoarding! Check out my little Shabby and Vintage snowman card:
This little guy was on a sheet of 12x12" scrapbook paper from an older DCWV pad called The Crafty Christmas! I trimmed it down to fit a Merry Merlot card base, then went to work to add some vintage layers!
I diecut some snowflakes from some white glimmer paper and sponged a little bit of Crumb Cake ink on them to give them a more rustic look:
I stamped a sentiment in Soft Suede from a retired set, Winter Wishes, on a scrap of the same paper, then cut it out freehand and sponged on some White craft ink around the edges along with a swoosh of Wink of Stella! The "winter" is from a Susan Branch alphabet set that I also cut out freehand; I love the eclectic look it creates!
My final touch was some thick baker's twine, and a sentiment on the inside:
I hope you enjoyed my Shabby and Vintage card, and hope you'll play along with us this week at The Card Concept! Just remember to tell us your style! See you there!
The family went to a sushi restaurant recently and Cassidy ate her dinner with chopsticks....they're "fake" but she used them all throughout the meal!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
