Snowy Postcard

If you're here to see my card for the preview of The Craft's Meow stamps for today, please click HERE or scroll down one post - thanks!

I found a challenge at the Stampendous Blog which asks us to pair one of their products with a Core'dinations product.  I just got this beautiful Stampendous cling called Snowy Postcard and couldn't wait to play with it.  So I stamped it on a kraft card base, and again on an aqua Core'dinations kraft-core paper.

Stampendous Core'dinations challenge

Then I used a picket fence distress marker to lighten the roofs and ground on the aqua panel, cut out the inner circle, colored the holly leaves, and glued it to the kraft card.  The card front was embossed with a Darice snowflake folder, and then I lightly sanded the Core'dinations paper to bring out the snowflakes in kraft, and added some pearls as berries on the holly.

I like how this turned out, especially the combination of the kraft and aqua with touches of red!
