Shabby Chic in the Snow
Even though we have had some warmer weather, there is still snow in my front yard that has been there since the week before Christmas. I'm really sick of it, but instead of grumbling, I thought I would embrace it with this card.
I made the snow background paper with one of the new 5x7 cuttlebug folders - and colored the embossed snowflakes with copics, and then added a wash of shimmery white paint over the top for a nice shabby chic finish. I continued with the snow theme by using the Spellbinders snow frame and a Whiff of Joy, Herb the Snowman stamp. At Die Cuts R Us, the challenge was to use a left-over Christmas/holiday paper, so inside of my snow frame, I used some DP from Basic Grey, from the Figgy Pudding line. I love that you can no longer tell that it is wrapped presents, but you just see colors/patterns - just proving that you CAN use Christmas paper any time of the year! I spritzed the frame and the lace with Tattered Angels, and used a rub-on for my sentiment.
Here are my challenges for this snowy card:
