Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a card I made with the Joy Clair Snowy Greetings set. I adore the all the snowmen and snowflakes in this set!
I started by using the background building stamp from Snowy Greetings to stamp an area on both the top and bottom of the card front ( using a light gray ink), so that it would peek out from underneath the main image panel. I then stamped the panel with the image of the three snowmen standing together in black.
For a little added interest on the background I used the larger snow flake images from Snowy Greetings and stamped them randomly in a light blue ink.
Using Distress markers and an old Wink of Stella brush pen (filled with water), I lightly colored the snowmen bodies with a light blue and added a little shadow to the ground below. Don't you just love the shimmer if adds, reminds me of shimmer of real snow on a sunny day! I then took a pink Distress marked and used it to color in the hats and scarves. I used a water brush with regular water for them as I didn't want them to sparkle too.
To finish the card I used a blue washi tape to create a border above and below where my panel would be, as well as add a die cut snowflake. Before I adhered the panel I stamped the sentiment and then popped it on with some foam tape.
Thanks for stopping by, until next time...
