Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT567) is about how cold it is! It’s definitely been on the chilly side here…we had sleet most of the the afternoon & we’re supposed to have snow tomorrow afternoon & on into Sat. morning. Maybe it’s just me, but when it’s already that cold, just go ahead and snow. It’s much preferable to the frozen rain, sleet & ice. Those are just accidents waiting to happen! And besides…I would much rather see lacy, pretty snowflakes like these than frozen pellets of ice.
To make my wintry blue card, I first die cut the largest layer, then die cut the smaller inset w/ a stitched rectangle. Then I heat embossed the large & smaller snowflakes w/ white powder onto the smaller inset then sponged on the blue inks from the Kaleidacolor ink pad. I also sponged the larger frame but reversed the colors w/ the dark on top & light at the bottom.
The greeting took a bit of finagling. I used a stamp positioner & masking to rearrange the vertical SNOW into a horizontal direction & colored it w/ a few blue & blue-violet Copics. I added a couple of die cut shapes that reminded me of snowflakes, a few punched snowflakes & some stickles for a little sparkle.
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven’t, please head on over and check out the DRS Thursday Challenge..this week it’s a color challenge. DRS images are not required & there’s a nice prize up for grabs!
