Snowflakes ‘n Gingham?

Mixing snowflakes and gingham?  Sure!  Why not?

This reminds me of wearing cowboy boots with lace…always a good look!

Glamour close up shot…

That snowflakes are just gorgeous.

and a peek inside.

Actually this card is very easy to make and would make a good choice for multiples…not that I like making multiples!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Smoky Slate Cardstock
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black and VersaMark Ink
  • Stamps:  Hearts Come Home
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon, Linen Thread, Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies, Silver Embossing Powder

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/4″.  Score at 4-1/4″, fold and burnish with a Bone Folder.
  • Cut the lower edge of the base card and at the same time add the line of dots.
  • Cut one set of Thick Whisper White snowflakes.  I laid these flakes upside down on my Silicon Craft Sheet and ran SNAIL on the back.  You could also add a strip of Adhesive Paper to the back of the cardstock before cutting out the flakes. Trim at sides.  Add flakes over the bottom of the card front..
  • Use Embossing Buddy before applying VersaMark Ink for sentiment. Sprinkle with Silver Embossing Powder and heat.
  • Add a band of Smoky Slate Gingham just below the line of dots using SNAIL.
  • Make several loops with the gingham ribbon and tie center with Linen Thread then add over band at left side with glue dots.  I have a video on YouTube here showing steps to make a bow like this.
  • Inside the Smoky Slate layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 3″ x 5-1/4″.  Stamp sentiment and attach over Smoky Slate with SNAIL.

See?  This really is a very simple card.

It’s Friday again and we are having 75 degree gorgeous fall weather.  Now that I have everything made and pretty much packed for OnStage Convention in Salt Lake City next week, I hope to relax and enjoy the week with Sweetums.

How your weekend plans are awesome…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

This speaks to me today…

Stay REALLY inky and be REALLY HaPpY!
