For my card, I found a lovely little stamp from Stampin' Up. I had purchased it at an incredible craft supply garage sale about two years ago. Sadly, I don't think I have ever used it. I used Memento white ink to stamp the image onto a square scrap piece of dark blue cardstock. The cardstock is also old. It was given to me many years ago and it's from a company called Fox River Company. After I stamped the image, I used an Xacto knife to cut around the image, then trimmed a bit more from the frame to leave a bit of white space between the image and the frame. I adhered the snowy image to a white cardbase that I dry embossed with snowflakes. Inside the card the sentiment reads "Let it Snow".
Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to create a second card for this challenge.
Oh, how fun! I'm so impressed you cut that out by hand. I'd make a terrible mess, where yours looks fantastic! And I remember that stamp set! It's pretty old, but you've put it to good use.ReplyDelete
