Warmest Wishes



Hello! Linda here today with some inspiration for you.

I know what you're thinking.....is this a Christmas card or isn't it?  Well it can be. I'm calling it a winter card, it has that blue wintery feel and those stamped snowflakes and the sentiment is somewhat non-committal. Soooooo....you could use it for Christmas and it would work perfectly well as a non-traditional card, or you can use it for a winter birthday, or for almost any occasion taking place in winter.



I used the die from the new release called Geometric Snowflake. This is a great die, you can use it all together as a focal point or even as a doily, or you can take it apart and use the snowflakes individually. Also it doesn't hit you in the eye as a snowflake and so I think you can just as easily use this die on non winter cards.

I also used a sentiment from an older clear stamps set called Snowflake Wishes and some of the little snowflake stamps from that set and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

I added a few flowers leaves and pearls and some seam binding and twine to finish my card, just lightly sponging the edges of the white leaves with some distress ink in Weathered Wood and adding a little lightly brushed gesso here and there and on the flowers and finally brushing the flowers with some clear Wink of Stella.

That's all from me, see you next time!
