I'm surrounded by so much snow here that my initial thought was to make a card featuring snowflakes, but I decided enough! I embossed some core'dination card with the Christmas Countdown folder and sanded back to reveal the lilac core. I cut a mat of lilac card for the embossed layer and adhered to the card base. I stamped the ornaments (sadly I don't know what company made this one) in Versamark and heat embossed with black powder. I added colour to the image by sponging on distress inks. I finsished the front with a simple metallic sentiment banner. On the inside I cut a mat layer of lilac card and on the white panel stamped a bold Christmas sentiment and finished by adding some of those snowflakes!!
I have to say that I really enjoyed the monochromatic cards you made for last week's challenge - it's going to be tough to pick a winner! I hope you have fun with this week's technique and don't forget to check out the blog to see inspiration cards from the rest of the team. See you soon.
