Hello, Diana here with a winter inspired card. And I am more inspired by this week's inspiration photo at CCNS than I am the weather outside. It has been so mild and even hot on some days. It's made me wish for snow more than usual... and I'm not even a big fan of winter!
To create my wintry blue card, I started with a sheet of watercolor paper that I sprayed with water and some Ultramarine Blue color bursts. Once that dried, I trimmed it down with the largest die from Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A. I also cut from the same sheet the Impression Obsession Small Snowflake Set. For my top layer, I once again started with the largest die from Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A but with white card stock. I then used Poppystamps Distressed Benson corner die cut - it gives a beautiful negative die cut with just the right amount of swirls.
I then stamped this quote from Quietfire Design's Deep Within the Winter Forest with Memento Luxe Nautical blue pigment die and added clear embossing powder over it. Once I heat set that dry, I added the snowflakes using Art Institute glue to finish my card.
Thank you so much for looking!
