Winter Birthday Card

Happy Friday Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne today with a clean and simple card for a winter birthday.
This card uses the Polar Bear Fishing from the new Arctic Animals release.  I started by cutting the pieces from white cardstock.
I used Distress Oxide inks and sponge daubers to colors the pieces.  Ink colors used - Hickory Smoke, Tumbled Glass, Abandoned Coral, Bundled Sage and Vintage Photo.
For the background,  blended several DO inks together and then splattered it with water and white paint to mimic snowfall.
I used the third largest of the Stitched Squares dies to cut the "diamond" background.
My card base is a top folding A2 card.  In order to center the diamond, I very lightly drew lines at the halfway point both vertically and horizontally.
After gluing down the diamond, I erased the lines.  I then stamped the sentiment on a strip of blue cardstock 1/2 inch high by 3 3/4 inch wide.  I used my scissors to fishtail the end.
I wrapped bakers twines around the card and used foam dots to pop up the sentiment over the twine.
I wanted the fish to glisten a bit so I added Wink of Stella to them.

This die is super cute and very versatile.  The Arctic Animals release and select others are on sale right now for a limited time in the online store.  Be sure to stop by to get your favorites before they're gone!


Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
