Hey peeps! It’s a nice crisp 30 degrees here this morning and we haven’t had any more snow since the other day when we had some that didn’t stick. The snowflakes were huge, though! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have a card to share this morning for the new Festive Fridays Challenge that started yesterday over at The Outlawz Challenges. SheepSki Designs is sponsoring this month and the themes this time are Christmas, Anything Goes, Thank You and Winter/Snowy. This thank you card is perfect for the challenge and was so much fun to create using Perfect Pearls in Blue Smoke, Forever Green, Forever Red, Forever Violet, Kiwi and Perfect Pearl and the smooshing technique on black glossy cardstock.
I cut a standard A2 size landscape top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock along with layering panels from Marcos Black Gloss cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock. I created the background on the black gloss cardstock panel by smooshing it into Blue Smoke, Forever Green, Forever Red, Forever Violet, Kiwi and Perfect Pearl powders (individually) that I spritzed with water in the Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer. I cut the large bold portion of the sentiment from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock using the Waffle Flower Bold Alpha dies, and then added the smaller portion stamped with the Waffle Flower Sentiment Additions stamp set in black ink and cut with the coordinating Waffle Flower Sentiment Additions die set.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip trimmed from the front panel along with a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Waffle Flower Sentiment Additions stamp set in black ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base.
And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! It’s a very versatile background that could fit any theme whatsoever! AND not to mention it’s a super fun technique!
