I feel like I cheated a little since my die cut created the whole scene for me, but my mojo has been sadly lacking this past month or so, so I was happy to let the die do the work! And simple as this card may be, I really like the way it turned out...
The die is from Gina Marie Designs and I love how she created the whole Winter scene in one round opening! I started with a blended background using Stormy Sky and Salty Ocean Distress Inks and then splattered a little bit with some water to resemble falling snow. I was not able to capture it with my camera, but I also added some Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist to the background and it really does shimmer IRL!
I die cut a circle opening in my top layer to fit the die cut, and then stamped my sentiment (The Greetery's Christmas Eve) before running the piece through my Big Shot with the Subtle EF (SU!). I assembled the layers onto a white top folding card base and finished! CAS and I actually love how it turned out! (Isn't it funny how some of our simplest and easiest cards turn out to be the prettiest and ones that we've worked hours and hours on are just...meh?!)
Make sure you check out Jo and her special GD Jane's inspiration, and then play along with the Christmas Kickstart Challenge to get a head start on those Christmas cards!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
