Hi everyone! Happy Saturday - hope you've had a great week! Don't we all just love the weekends?! We've had some gorgeous weather here which makes the weekends even more enjoyable! Our newest challenge at Let's Craft and Create began on the 5th, and I'm stoked to share my mid-month DT inspiration project for Challenge #119 - Winter!

I had a ball creating this note card by embossing the entire front panel with sparkle embossing powder to create the look of shimmering snow in the moonlight. I've made several of these over the past few years and they are so much fun.

I inked a white panel with pink, turquoise and dark blue ink, while masking the moon, then did first and second generation stamping of the tree (stamped once loaded with ink, then stamped off once) to create the forest background. I covered the entire inked/stamped panel with Versamark Dazzle and then embossed it with iridescent sparkle embossing powder. It's so pretty in real life! :)

I layered the panel on silver mirror cardstock prior to adhering it to the card base. I left the inside blank, as it is a note card.


I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Premium White cardstock, Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Marco's Silver Mirror cardstock
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree stamp set, Gina K Designs Christmas Wishes stamp set (sentiment)
  • Ink: Memento Paris Dusk, Teal Zeal & Angel Pink; Versamark
  • Dies/Punches: Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Sentiment Flag
  • Accessories: Judi-Kins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder

I hope you've enjoyed today's project and have found some inspiration to play in our Winter challenge this month! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
Scrappy hugs,
Leslie
