And while we are on winter!
Hmmmmmmm perhaps I am jinxing the weather with all these snowy cards. I am not really one to be superstitious, but you never know. What I DO know is that I have a cottage rented for next week and I am SO hoping that we have good weather. This card is another card in the Christmas Card series that I designed for tomorrow nights class. The sentiment went a little wonky on the bottom of the card, but I realigned my stamp for the next time!!!
What do you think about the embossed snowflakes in the background. I got that idea out of the new idea book and catalogue. Just roll your wheels through versamark (Better yet, get an empty cartridge and load with versamark refill) onto your background and emboss with clear EP. I like the way it gives the look of dimension and could see how this technique could slightly resemble dry embossing and the cuttlebug embossing folders. Bold images enhance the look of this effect.
This card was made with A Summer Sky and Mellow Moss combination, stamped with the "A tree for all seasons" stamp set. I coloured the image with aquapainters, summer sky ink and cocoa and really red markers! A little glitter on the snowflakes and a gentle winter scene is created.
I think I better start posting beach and sun cards soon!!!!!!!!
