Hello! Back with another card today.
It is kinda rare for me to use card base with color other than white – I do use pattern papers over the card base, but changing the color is something that doesn’t occur to me much. Neither does stamping the sentiment in any color other than black. That is even rarer – in fact, it almost feels like I’ve got some brilliant idea when I stamp the sentiment in a non-black color! 😀 So, this card, which includes both, is pretty rare –
For this card, I tried making a partial plaid pattern on the red card base. I used Winnie & Walter Scenery:Stripes along with Memento Tuxedo Black, Hero Arts Soft Granite and Hero Arts Unicorn inks, and mostly restricted the criss-crossing only in the upper right – I don’t think its so apparent in the end – but its ok 😛
Once I was done, I cut the snowflakes from Simon Says Stamp More Fun Flakes from white card stock and also card stock with I had painted with silver acrylic paint – this gives a beautiful metallic look – love it! 🙂 I then cut another piece of white card stock for the sentiment, cutting the top to a curved edge. The sentiment, from Paper Trey Ink ‘Tis The Season is stamped using ink from Faber Castell red stamp pad. I then adhered the pieces together and added some clear rhinestones over the snowflakes – what are snowflakes with out rhinestones on them! 😛
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
