Hello once again everyone. I am extremely pleased to announce I am the featured Stamper for the new challenge beginning at Color Throwdown, after winning the challenge with this card HERE.
This week, the swatch is:
And here is my card:
I was drawn towards a Christmas themed card and decided to use my Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the month from January 2020. I remember the colours in that kit, and the range of layering snowflakes.
I began by stamping the snowflake background in a light grey ink (neutral fee colour) using most of the layering snowflakes in the stamp set. I then used a couple of rectangles from a stitched die set – but putting the central piece back in.
The turquoise shiny card stock was embossed using a dotty embossing folder – I think it looks like little drops of snow in the background – and placed so it peeked through.
The same turquoise card stock was used to die cut the three snowflakes, adding some double sided tape on the back in case I wanted to glue the down completely – but I only stuck the centres down, leaving the rest kinda just hanging there – more dimension.
The sentiment and the banner outline heat embossed in Wow! embossing powder white detail, and then I actually fussy-cut the banner out. Yep – another but of fussy-cutting….wonders will never cease!
So there we are – I hope you can join this challenge. These colours are amazing, and leave a lot of scope for different themes – I look forward to having you join us this week. xx
