Today’s Bloggers’ Challenge was to use this sketch as inspiration. Mine is truly the "thought" of the sketch, because I certainly didn’t follow it exactly! However, what I wanted to do wasn’t working…and this was…so here it is! I’m also combining this challenge with the Christmas in July one going on over at Late Night Stampers.
I started with a base of Taken with Teal cardstock, inspired by the Holiday Lounge Designer Paper. I used the Real Red print for the top half of my card. It is hard to see in this picture, but the snowflakes are punched with the NEW snowflake punch out of Whisper White Faux Diamond Dust paper. (To make Faux Diamond Dust, run your Versamark pad directly over the cardstock, then add Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heat set. It is wonderful to use with punches!) I added the same technique to the center of each silver Jumbo Brad by applying the Versamark to the brad and then the Iridescent Ice EP. I lined up the trio of snowflakes across the seam of the DSP to hide it. Finally I stamped Merry Christmas from All Holidays in Basic Black in the lower right corner.
Very simple card…would be easy to duplicate for Christmas cards!
