Dec 18 - ssnotime118 - CAS Snow -- Today's challenge is to incorporate some snowy aspect to your creation. Use anything on your card that says SNOW -- anything wintery, snowy, icy, etc. Let's just get some white and sparkly snow on our cards. Some of us will have the real thing for Christmas and some won't, so lets just sprinkle some snow in cyberland today! And let's try for Clean and Simple today as well!
My card is quite simple and went together really fast! I planned it all in my head on my way home from work and wonders of wonders--it turned out pretty much exactly the way it looked in my head, LOL! That RARELY happens!
So, I liked a similar card I made last week so much I started out with the same Kraft base and built on that. I stamped the sentiment, from PTI's Signature Christmas on the Kraft top layer, then scored a couple of lines with my Scor Pal. Then I ran the top part through my Cuttlebug with the Snowflake folder and swiped a Fresh Snow ink pad over the raised design. That was a little too stark for the feel I wanted for this card, so I took a paper towel and sort of rubbed it into the card stock. Yes! That's what I wanted--just a subtle difference. Then I tied 7/8" black and ivory gingham ribbon from Sharon's store around and attached a bow and a black Vintage button with Jute Rustic Twine. Non-traditional colors, for sure, but I love it!
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave a comment on Sharon's blog telling her where you uploaded. Please use the keyword ssnotime118 if you upload to a public forum. Check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team!
