You should have arrived here from the amazing Karen's blog; don't you adore the card she made for today?
I love the Holiday Foundations set that Karen designed; the elements are all really fun, with a distressed look to them, and the sentiments are equally wonderful:
I made 2 cards today, both using my Brilliance Peacock ink pad - I think these colors are fun and fresh for Christmas, and definitely lend themselves to snowflakes!
I've used this design before, but with washi tapes. I thought it would be fun to use 3 of the elements from the set as my vertical elements. After stamping them and the sentiment, I embossed the whole card front with snowflakes, and then added an embellished snowflake to finish.
And for this one, I chose just the candy cane stripe. I masked off half of my panel diagonally, and stamped it repeatedly, then reversed the mask and stamped it again at a 90 degree angle from the first stamping. Then I just added my sentiment and a big snowflake die, and placed my panel on a white card.
Okay, time to move on to visit Lindsay's blog; you'll love what she's done today!
