OCTOBER CARD CLASS WITH SNOWMEN IN A WINTERY SCENE

Hi all,

Well last night I had my October Card Class which was so much fun!  We spent the evening surrounded by Snowmen and Christmas Cheer!

Yesterdays' post showed you the first of the three cards that we made so today's is showing you the 2nd card (and my personal favourite of the set!)


This card has been created with a simple card base and a single layer of cardstock added.  To create the wintery scene, I have added ink to the top section of the card using a Sponge Brayer and some torn printing paper.  This is a great technique for creating layers of colour and I think it looks like the trees are standing on different layers of ground.  The trees come from the Timeless Tidings Stamp Set and I have stamped in both first and second generation ink.

The Snowmen have been stamped onto the background and onto a seperate pice of Very Vanilla Cardstock. I have coloured them with Stampin Blends, and after cutting out, I have distressed the edges using a Sponge Dauber and Crumb Cake Ink.  I have attached the snowmen to the image that I have stamped onto the background to give the raised look.  I think this makes the snowmen stand out more.

To finish, I have distressed the edge of the cardstock and tied a bow of Braided Linen Trim.  Underneath, I have added two pieces of Copper Glimmer Paper that I have cut using the Sprigg Punch.  So looking forward to getting together with everyone who has booked, it should be lots of fun! Come back tomorrow and Thursday to see the other cards in their full glory! You could add any sentiment of your choice but I have chosen the one from the stamp set.
