Same card – different colours

October 30, 2018

The first card I am sharing today is also one of those from the tutorial I purchased from Create with Connie and Mary.  I embossed Coastal Cabana card using the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I attached piece of Poppy Parade Designer Series Paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to the right hand side of the embossed card.  I stamped the tree image from the Snow is Glistening stamp set onto Whisper White card using Coastal Cabana ink.  I also stamped the tree trunk from the same stamp set using Gray Granite ink.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I attached a narrow strip of Silver Foil across the image panel.  I cut the snowflake from Poppy Parade card using a die from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies and attached over the stamped tree and the Silver Foil card.  I stamped “joy” from the Snow is Glistening stamp set onto Whisper White card using Gray Granite ink.  The greeting is punched out using the 1″ circle punch before attaching to a Coastal Cabana 1-1/8″ scalloped circle.  The greeting is attached to the centre of the snowflake.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped one of the greetings from the Snow is Glistening stamp set using Poppy Parade ink.

I really liked this card and wanted the ladies at my Beachmere class to be able to create it.  I pulled out the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper which was free in a recent promotion and found one of the Designer Series papers was just perfect for this card.  I still used Thick Whisper White for my base but embossed Shaded Spruce card and attached the Dashing Along Designer Series paper.  The tree image is stamped using Shaded Spruce ink and the snowflake is cut from Cherry Cobbler card.  I used Gold Foil card instead of Silver Foil on this card as well.  The tree trunk and “joy” are stamped using Gray Granite ink.  The greeting on the inside of the card is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

I love both of these cards, but feel that the first card uses slightly non-traditional colours, while the second one is very traditional.  What do you think?

Remember the Snowflake Showcase product suite becomes available for purchase on the 1st November.

Bye for now,
