Let It Snow

 

This “Let It Snow” Christmas card came together because of two challenges. TGIF has a technique challenge this week, where we were to create our own background.

 

I began by spritzing a piece of Shimmery White cardstock with water, and sprinkling it with blue Brusho Crystal Colour. I spritzed again to get it nice and wet to let the color run on the paper. After drying, which I assisted with my Heat Tool, I pressed it flat beneath heavy books.

Once my sky was flat, the shape was determined by the sketch at this week’s Global Design Project. 

I chose Thick Whisper White for the card base, layered with Whisper White cardstocked, embossed by the Softly Falling embossing folder.

The hearts in the sketch became snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers die set. I used three of the dies for cutting the snowflakes from Shimmery White cardstock. Can you see them glistening?

 

 

I didn’t have the words “let it snow” in a stamp set, so I relied on my handy, dandy Labeler Alphabet stamp set. The letters are stamped in Balmy Blue ink, and snipped from Whisper White cardstock. If you haven’t seen my tips for ease of use, here it is:

Before gluing it all together,  I wound Silver Metallic Thread around the bottom of the sky, and tied a knot. 

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing some snowflakes today. It’s cloudy in San Diego, and we’re expecting rain tonight! No snow in the forecast though.
