Merry Monday, everyone! It's always merry when I can make a card on my day off! This week's challenge at Merry Monday is a color combo - use blue and white with some texture - courtesy of Lesley. Right away I went to the embossing folder stash, planning to ink the white embossed paper with blue ink. As usual, the ink went on more than the embossed portion so I continued adding with a lighter blue and then edged the paper with a darker blue. I stamped and white embossed my sentiment directly on the card base, then stamped a tone-on-tone blue snowflake background. I popped the embossed snowflake onto the card with foam and added some crystal domes. Done!
Here's my card:
Stamps - Hero Arts CL630 Miracle of the Holidays (sentiment), CG685 Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints
Embossing folder - Sizzix/Hero Arts 658287 Snowflakes Set
Inks: Hero Arts Cornflower Blue; Ranger Embossing Ink; Tim Holtz Distress Inks- Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass
Embossing Powder: Stampendous Detail White
Gems: Michael's Reflections crystal domes
