Well, I know I said I would take more time to make a card and I did. This time I used up seven minutes to create this card design. The snowflakes and the sentiment are from Rubber Stampede. I have had these stamps a long, long time so I am not sure if they are still available or even if the company is still in business. But I am sure there are many companies who have similar stamps that would work as well.
First of all I used an anti-static pad over my card stock. Then I masked off the lower left to right corner. I used Versamark ink to stamp the snowflakes and then added silver fine detail embossing powder and then heat set it. Next taking a round dauber sponge I added Cranberry Tart ink from Gina K. Designs over the top of the embossed area. With a paper towel I removed as much of the ink from the snowflakes as I could so they would pop more. I then stamped the sentiment also in the Cranberry Tart. I finished the card by adding a row of rhinestones along the colored area and a silver metallic cord.
This is going to be also entered in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge for this week which calls for a one layer card in as few minutes as you can make it. In other words, a race to the finish. LOL
One good thing about these quick card designs is that I got more made this week then I originally thought I would. So I am happy. I might make my goal yet!
Have a great weekend everyone!
