This card is pulling a double duty- first of all, the Meade Girls' challenge was to create a Christmas card using non-traditional colors. I thought these colors were pretty non-traditional...Here, I used Basic Black for the card base, then Tempting Turquoise and Pixie Pink for the layers and the snowflakes. I pulled out an old SU set called Snowflakes. This was one of the first SU sets that I bought. I randomly stamped the small snowflakes in turquoise and Pixie Pink on the white panel, then sponged along the edges using Pixie Pink and then layered it onto Turquoise. I stamped the large snowflake in turquoise and again sponged around the edges using Pixie Pink, then layered it Pixie Pink and then Turquoise. I stamped "warmest wishes' from one of the AYC sets in turquoise and then punched it out using the large oval punch. I sponged around the edges and then used pop dots to attach it. Lastly, I applied a clear Dew Drop to the center of the snowflake. Easy peasy!
Tomorrow, I'm going to the Baltimore SBS in Perry Hall and this is the card that I'm taking. I hope the ladies there like it, even if it is simple and 'non-traditional'. I figured this card could be used as a Christmas card, but also as a winter birthday or thinking-of-you-type card.
