One of my favorite challenges is the Retro Rubber Challenge. It gives me the chance to use my older stamps that tend to get neglected as new ones are acquired. Once again, blue is my preference for making a card all about snow.
My card base is Soft Sky with an embossed layer of Soft Sky. The embossing folder used is Snow Flurries by Tim Holtz. It's and older one, too. I sprayed Radiant Rain Shimmering ICE Mist over the embossed layer and while it dried, I made the label. The stamp set I used is the 2010 Complements of the Season by Waltzing Mouse. I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes in Night of Navy onto Whisper White cardstock then, punched out the sentiment using the Decorative Label Punch. Behind the label, I added a few strands of the Copper Metallic Thread. Both the embossed layer and the label were attached using Stampin' Dimensionals.
And, there you have it. A clean and simple card all about snow. I'm not sure those who live north of me will appreciate it as they are under weather advisories. I'm not sure what is suppose to hit my area. I'm hoping very little in the way of snow. ☺
The theme I used is from the Retro Rubber Challenge. For all the challenge details, click the image below.
Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
I really like the CAS-ness of your card: the layout is clean and elegant. Soft Sky was a great colour choice for a snow card and the copper wire a perfect finishing touch that really accentuates the sentiment. It's a lovely creation. Thanks so much for joining us at Retro Rubber.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jan! I always think of blue when I think of snow.Delete
Love your CAS card, the embossing background with the snowflakes are just perfect for the challenge. Love the sentiment and how you put it in the frame. Thanks you for playing along with Retro Rubber!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Donna! I forget I have that snowflake embossing folder and it's a really nice one, too.Delete
I think you did a wonderful job with creating a snowy scene. The embossed background brings the card to life, and I love how that copper thread behind the sentiment makes it pop.ReplyDelete
Thanks, PJ! That embossing folder is a favorite.Delete
