When It Snows--Stamp Ink Paper #83

January 24, 2017

I don't have a lot of my "to do" list this week, so I have a little extra time to play in my tepee.  I saw the sketch at The Stamp Ink Paper Challenge and decided to play along.  I have a very dear friend that was just diagnosed with breast cancer.   :((  I wanted to make a card for her that was uplifting and seasonal.  She lives in MI and it is winter there!   I hope it brightens her day!

My card is created using the Simon Says Snow Much Thanks card kit.  I used a white card base.  I covered the front of the card with the Cornflower Blue card stock included in the kit.  Next, I stamped the snowflakes on the blue gray parchment paper using the white shimmer ink.  I heat embossed the snowflakes with white embossing powder.  I stamped a large snowflake on the parchment paper and trimmed it using a stitched circle die.  I mounted this on a circle cut with the same die in the cornflower card stock.  I loved this sentiment.  It was perfect for encouragement.  I did change the shape of the sentiment in the sketch and made it a lot wider and shorter to be able to use this sentiment.  The stamp set for the snowflakes and sentiment are from Simon Says Stamp Frozen Fractals.  A variety of snowflake sequins are included in the kit and added to the card for fun and shine.  

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  I appreciate you stopping by my blog!  Leave a comment, I love to hear from you!
