There's a story behind this card, but more of that later. I used our April 2013 colours - navy blue, light blue and white. I used the inlaid die cut technique on this card. I made the base from navy card and cut a panel of light blue. I die cut the largest snowflake out of the light blue card and then inlaid the stamped snowflake. After securing the die in place, I adhered the panel to the card base. I added a simple sentiment, which I stamped on white card and layered on navy. I finished the front by adding lots of gems to the snowflake, in light and dark blues. On the inside I cut a panel of white card, I adhered the pale blue die cut snowflake on to which I stamped the snowflake in pale blue. I finished by adding a Christmas sentiment. I also made a small vellum snowflake which I used to decorate the flap on the envelope.
Now, the story behind the card is that this was the second card I made. I spent most of Thursday morning making this card:
Stamps: Papermania - Bauble Decoration; Waltzingmouse - Compliments of the Season II; Stampin' Up! - Delightful Dozen
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; SU - Night of Navy, Bashful Blue
Dies: Spellbinders - Labels 29 (S5-156) #6
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Night of Navy; Double sided adhesive paper; Glitter; Copics
I stamped the bauble image onto white card and applied some double sided adhesive and then dipped it in glitter. I spent ages burnishing the glitter into the card, it was really worth it as the card has a lovely shimmer. Sadly, when I came back to the card after lunch I discovered bubbles where the adhesive had come away from the card!!! You can't really see it in the photo above, but you can in the close up below. I tried to cut a slit into the film and squeeze out the air and get it to restick, here's the result:
So, I made another card and I'm really pleased with it. For more inspiration cards using previous colour challenge combinations, check out the cards from the rest of the team.
