Snow is forecast for today but I'm hoping today's cards are all I see of it!
Last week I showed some cards stamped with the 4-way Christmas stamping block - one day the poinsettia and another the pinecones. I didn't use the side with the holly this year but did stamp several of the snowflakes. These are stamped on regular white cardstock and colored with the palest values of alcohol markers. I did the flakes themselves in yellow, peach and pink and then filled in the swirly background with blue.
These were cut out and all of them matched up with a snow-covered glossy cardstock. It is hard to match up blues but these worked together so beautifully.
For the first card, I used a dark blue shimmer card base and a pink shimmer border on the feature. Then I added a sentiment sticker.
Next I did two identical ones (I KNOW! Right?) by using Sizzix dies to cut the block into a shape and backing it with a larger version of the same die shape. The base border is glimmer white and the shape border in glimmer mauve. These got a plastic sentiment sticker. I'll just show one of them:
I then repeated the style using different border colors. The first uses the same glimmer white for the base and a bright glimer yellow for the shape. The second uses blue glimmer for the base and a pale yellow for the shape. Both got a gold peel-off greeting:
Finally, I used a cream glimmer for both borders and made the block border thinner. This got a couple of penguin stickers and a peel-off sentiment on the feature block.
All of the cards have the feature block popped up on foam tape.
