We've lived here for about 4 years and in that time we've had snow maybe 3 or 4 times. Only a few of those times was it on the ground long enough to play in.
So you can imagine how excited my kids are that today there is snow in the forecast....around mid-day...so there is a possiblity of a snow day!! I truly hope it snows at least a bit or they will be so disappointed.
With that on my mind I thought that MFT's new Pure Innocence Snow Day would be the perfect image for my card today.
As I was looking through my "saved" challenges looking for a sketch, I realized this card also qualifies for this week's Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential-SSHP09, use an image with a hat. I also used an older MFT SCS sketch, MFTSC77.
- card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
- stamps: Snow Day,
- paper: SU cardstock, Basic Grey Euphoria,
- ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaMagic Spring Pansy,
- others: copics, nestabilities, punches, cuttlebug embossing folders, Stamping Bella embellishments, glue dots, Martha Stewart glitter, glitter clean up cloth, quickie glue pen, copic glitter pens,
I stamped my image onto my cardstock with memento ink and colored her with copics. I used my nesties to cut out the image and then sponged the edges before removing the die. I picked out my papers, which was a challenge for this color of purple/violet. I embossed both the white cardstock base and the light violet piece with my cuttlebug embossing folders and then sponged ink over them both lightly.
I used punches to punch out the squares of designer paper and snowflake. I finished the card by adding some glitter for the snow, a few embellishments and touches with my copic glitter pens. I decided I wanted to finish the inside of the card too. I used the negative space of the snowflake punch to sponge some snowflakes and then stamped the sentiment. Hard to photograph as it's very light.
