Winter Scene

Hello, it's Gracie and today I want to share a clean and simple card with you, that I made for this week's challenge #68 at Classy Cards 'n Such - Winter Birds.

To make my card, first I die cut a card base with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A. I created a scene on the actual card front with Penny Black's Tweet Tweet stamp set. I used a purple ink pad for the lilac branches and heat embossed the bird on the branch with Gold detail embossing powder from Sparkle 'n Sprinkle. I also heat embossed a wonderful sentiment.

As you can see I sprayed the card with lilac and gold. The lilac drops and sprays were done with a DIY Distress Ink spray I made using Shaded Lilac Re-Inker and water mixed in an empty Spritzer Bottle. I also used Inka Gold in Yellow Gold mixed with water, which I applied tapping a brush. Yes, it is a bit of a mixed media card! I want to point out that I used a mask to keep the sprays and stamps within the frame shape.

I die cut a window to create a frame with Labels Twenty-Five, one of my favorite classic label shapes from Spellbinders. The label was cut from a pierced matting layer die cut with Our Daily Bread Designs Flourish Star Pattern set. I adhered the frame to the stamped card base with double pieces of mounting tape to give extra dimension to it.

I finished my clean design with three Baby Rhinestones - Silver and a piece of gold cording. I didn't want to add a regular bow to the card so I created a nice flow, threading the gold cording through the frame and adhering it with a tiny drop of silicone glue.

I hope you like my card and feel motivated to join our challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such! Remember that the supplies used can be found here.
