Holiday Card Series 2014 – Snowflakes Sponged

Card #6 |  The card for today involved a bit of technique, to mix things up!

HCS-14_SpongedSnowflake copy

I started by cutting a sheet of regular printer paper to measure 4 x 5.25”. I then used a square die to cut a window into the printer paper panel to create a sponging mask for my card panel. I placed this mask over a piece of white card stock that I cut to measure the same size, 4 x 5.25”. I took out my Bermuda ink pad and my sponge and lightly sponged the area around the edge of the square mask opening. Keeping the mask in place, I stamped snowflakes in various sizes and ink colors of sage, eucalyptus and mermaid inside the sponged area.

I lifted the mask, stamped the greeting in the lower right corner and mounted this panel directly to my sage card base. I then added a wrap of French roast & white baker’s twine. I realized it was looking a little bit empty somehow, so I created a little tag out of a scrap of cardstock + my Corner Chomper tool, stamped a tiny, sage snowflake on it, punched a little hole and tied it to the twine already on the card, popping it up with a 3D foam square. I added a few twinkle stickers for some shine and hooray, it’s complete!

Thanks for taking a look today!  We are half way through the Holiday Card Series for 2014!
