Hi there, I hope you had a great weekend!
Today’s card uses the Snow Flurry stamp and die sets from Concord and 9th as well as Catherine Pooler Inks which I’m just beginning to use. I’m really liking them so far!
I started by die cutting the large snowflake from the die set three times, once out of Canson Bristol Smooth cardstock and twice out of 110# Recollections cardstock (these two pieces are just for stacking so I used thicker, inexpensive paper). I used a foam blending tool to blend Catherine Pooler It’s a Boy ink onto the Bristol Smooth die cut. Then I smooshed a bit of Something Borrowed, a darker blue, onto my work surface and watered it down a bit. Using a small brush, I flicked on the Somthing Borrowed over the die cut. I’d completely forgotten that these inks are water reactive so instead of getting crisp splatter like I’d intended, the splatter kind of blended out. It kind of added to the crystalline look of the snowflake, I thought, so I went with it. I popped out the inside snowflakes and then stacked and adhered all three layers together.
The background is an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock onto which I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. Then I used Catherine Pooler Sweet Sixteen ink to stamp snowflakes. I adhered the die cuts over top and trimmed off any part that hung off the edge.
To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
Thanks so much for visiting!
