Wild about Wasabi!
With the weather being so cold, it seems fitting to have a Christmas in July Class!! This is one of the cards that we will be making on Tuesday (follow the link to my SU! events for details about the class.
I LOVE the Wild Wasabi card stock, which is part of the In Colours collection for this year. The main image is layered onto Purely Pomegranate, which is also one of the new colours.
The subtle snowflakes are stamped in Bashful Blue. I stamped off on the snowflakes to keep them light in colour. The Cute Snowman is from the Cold Play Stamp set. Letters are from the Letterpress Alphabet set. Wanting to highlight specific words in a sentiment stamp? Simply colour over the parts of the image that you want with a marker and gently "puff" on the stamp to ensure that it is moist before stamping. To create the Scalloped edge, I removed the guard from my corner rounder punch and continually punched the edge to get the border that I wanted. A little bashful blue marker lined to the left of the letters, give them more dimension. The little brad in the middle of the prima flower is from the new Fire collections of gem brads, available in the New Idea book and catalogue.
