However, south of Anchorage this was the scene:
Lots of snow falling there!
Anyway, the challenge issued at Jingle Belles was to create a card with soft elements...."batting, velvet, fibers, denim, thick layers of embossing powder, soft silk flowers and snowflakes, pillow stickers & upholstered brads! Really, anything your brain can come up with that is SOFT, it doesn’t have to be only papercrafting products that you use, either! I encourage you to pull out those quilting, knitting, sewing, & flocking skills!
I ended up adding Fun Flock to my house for snow as my soft element, and maybe the quilted ribbon could be considered soft? I also added some Dazzling Diamonds for a sparkly snow-on-the-ground look. I used last weeks sketch from Splitcoast also(I think it was last weeks).
Supplies used( all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Christmas Lodge, sentiment from Forest Festivities
Paper: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Whisper White, Frostwood Lodge DSP
Ink: Black StazOn, Handsome Hunter, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Snow Burst embossing folder, Fun Flock, Dazzling Diamonds, Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon, Modern Label Punch
Hi Lisa! This is a great SOFT card! I love the ribbon and the flocking powder! And nothing like some good ol' Dazzling Diamonds for the sparkly snow look. I love your card & the plaid bg is PERFECT :) Thanks so much for playing my prompt at Jingle Belles! :)ReplyDelete
Oh what a gloriously pretty and elegant holiday card and YES the ribbon and flocking give you MULTIPLE soft elements zap well done there! :)ReplyDelete
Love the texture of that pretty ribbon ... and of course that *soft* flocked snow ... so glad you joined us at jingle belles.ReplyDelete
