Well, this is it (I think), the last of my non-Artisan Award winning cards. I do have one more 3D project to show, it is my favourite and most creative, I think!
Anyways, this card is a 5×5 square card and I wanted to do a soft and serene winter card but using a monochromatic colour palette.
The base is Whisper White and I’ve layered it with Basic Gray cardstock, then another layer of Whisper White and then a piece of Nouveau Chic (retired) designer paper. Not your typical Christmas colours or patterns but I really liked how the design of the paper imitated a ribbon. So, I added a piece of Basic Gray satin ribbon and a big bow just above the hanging ribbon on the DSP.
Next came the focal point:
On a piece of Glossy cardstock, I first stamped the trees from Lovely as a Tree in Versamark. I brayered over with Going Gray and sponged the edges with Basic Gray. Then I stamped Dasher in Black Craft Ink and embossed with Heat and Stick Powder and then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds. Next, I added snow drifts with Whisper White cardstock.
To finish it off, I added a piece of Styled Silver HodgePodge Hardware and a piece of Basic Gray cardstock on which I stamped a snowflake from Snow Swirled and the word “peace” from All Holidays.
Thanks for stopping by today and for all of your kind comments!
