Hi all, It’s Lisanne here! Welcome to my blopost today. It feels like it’s been a while since I last shared a project with you. Last week I saw a picture that reminded me that is it 75 days until Christmas. I can’t wait hihi.
So for this post I made a winter card (looks like Christmas).
For the base I used the Stitched Indented Rectangle. I cut the largest rectangle from the 240 gr. Soft Finish Cardstock. One piece smaller is from the 300 gr. Soft Finish Cardstock. Why I use two different weights is because I wanted to make a background with the Distress Mica Spray (Frosted Juniper and Snow Flurries) and this works better on the 300 gr. After using the Mica Spray I added some Distress Icicle crackle paste (this has to dry a long time).
While my background was drying, I created Jack Frost the snowman. The snowman is one of my favorite dies I think. I used the 240 gr. Soft Finish Cardstock for all my characters and accessories. I colored Jack with Distress Ink. Than I made a tree, which is a die from the Mason Jar, who is standing next to Jack.
I thought the background was just a little bit blank so I die cut the beautiful doily from the Art Journal Special, put some embossing powder at the top and adhered this at the background. Because the background is not smooth, I adhered everyting with glossy accents so everything stays in place.
For the snow boarder at the bottom I used the Winter Edges from the Art Journal Special. The word ‘Frosty’ is perfect for this card.
So this is my winter card for today. I hope you feel inspired to make your own frosty card! Thank you for following me along and perhaps chat soon in a Facebook Live!
