It's the beginning of the month, and St. Luke's Charity challenge has been posted. This month's challenge is to "Let it snow" and we can use snowflakes, icicles, polar bears, penguins, snowmen - anything goes as long as its cold and frosty so plenty of opportunities to get out the glitter and crystals!
For my first card, I took one of my quilled snowflakes...added a bit of glitter and put it on a blue background which is popped up on a silver background. The small snowflakes are shiny silver and punched with an EK Success snowflake punch.
The sentiment is a PTI image, that didn't emboss very well. I used a silver pigment ink, and I thought the embossing powder was silver, but it turned out to be white with glitter in it...weird! Fun fact about the small snowflakes. I was throwing away an empty tissue (Kleenex) box the other day and realized that the inside of the box was bright shiny silver. So...I took the box apart and peeled off the printed side (only to make the cardboard thinner). The punch is not a heavy duty punch and taking off a layer of the cardboard made it easier to punch. So...I learned that you never know where you'll find something interesting to use when making cards! LOL!
This next card is a total CASE of this card by Jenny. There are subtle differences...but I fell in love with the die she used...and had to have it!
I allowed my card to cover the entire front of my 4.25 x 5.5 inch card. Then I added some additional snow hills and popped them up for depth. I put a touch of yellow card stock in my windows and doors and added stickles for the stars. I also punched a circle for the moon and added subtle shadows for my scene.
I LOVE Jenny's card!...I bet I do this one again!!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you leave me a comment and let me know how you like these cards. Until next time...
