Winter Thanks Card
I’ve been watching Nichol Magourik’s videos recently where she’s been doing a lot of background techniques with distress inks and it’s made me want to play with distress inks too. I had my chance to do so creating the background for today’s card using the stamp set included in the January kit from Simon Says Stamp.
I started out with some Neenah solar white card stock and the Cute Snowflakes stamp set from Simon Says stamp. I used versamark ink to stamp the snowflakes all over the card stock and white embossing powder. Then I used Salty Ocean, Stormy Sky, and Tumbled Glass distress inks and a foam applicator to color over the embossed snowflakes. I love how they magically appear when you go over the paper with the ink.
For the sentiment I used the Hand Lettered Winter Wishes stamp set also from Simon Says Stamp and the Stargazer ink from Mama Elephant. I added the doodlebug enamel dots for some embellishing and the card was done.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
