I love having a day off! Granted, after this weekend, working 29 out of 48 hours, I needed this day off. lol So, while my daughter watched “The Backyardigans” I made this card.
The idea came from the Sept/Oct/Nov issue of Take Ten magazine. I don’t buy it as often I would like, but when I do I find lots of inspiration. The layout was inspired by AJ Otto’s card on page 32.
I used Marina Mist and Naturals White cardstock from Stampin’ Up, cutting a standard size card and a mat cut to 4 1/2 x 3 1/4. I then stamped a piece of Marina Mist with snowflakes from the “Frosties” stamp set by Lawn Fawn. It is such a cute set, and you get so many different snowflakes! I chose 5 of them to create the pattern. I then embossed with white powder and lightly brushed Frost White shimmer paint over them before attaching them to the white mat. I used my Mat Pack from Stampin Up to poke some holes at the bottom before stamping the sentiment (from Frosties) with Marina Mist. I then tied some silver ribbon around the mat and attached it to the card with some dimensional adhesive.
Quick and simple! Hope you enjoy it!
