Let It Snow!

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne posting today.  This card uses two dies from the new release.
I started with an 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 piece of white card stock that I scored and folded at the 4 1/4 inch mark.  Next I cut a panel that was slightly larger from Strathmore Mixed Media paper. I used a craft mat to wipe ink on direct from the pads, sprayed it with water and dipped the mixed media paper into it.
I did this several times, using a heat gun to dry between dippings.  When I was satisfied with the background, I cut the panel to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches.
Next I cut three ornaments from Soft Sky cardstock and one from Whisper White cardstock.  I stacked and glued the three blue ones together and topped it with the white.
When that was done I cut out three snowflakes from the Soft Sky cardstock and used Wink of Stella on top of the snowflakes and ornament.  I used three coats for lots of shimmer!  Then I glued the snowflakes to the front of the panel.
The sentiment was heat embossed in silver on a piece of velum that was 1 1/2 inches wide and a bit larger than the width of the watercolored panel.  I wrapped velum around the panel around so I could adhere it to the back.
 Finally I added a piece of silver cord to the top of the ornament and glued that in place.

Tomorrow is World Cardmaking Day - I hope today's post encourages you to be creative and make a card tomorrow!

You achieved a really pretty background for your sparkly snowflakes and ornament. Stamping the sentiment on vellum was a nice touch.
