Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. I got home last night from a week of crafting on the Cape with five friends, my mom and my aunt. We have made this craft trip an annual vacation every February, and it's come to be one of my favorite vacations of the year! One whole week of uninterrupted craft time and no crappy household responsibilities (like laundry, cooking and cleaning) is just pure H-E-A-V-E-N!
Today I am sharing another card that I made for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #116. This week we have a color challenge to inspire you. Our challenges run for two weeks, thereby giving you more time to create, so I have designed a second card to share with you this week that was still inspired by the same image seen below:
Here is the card I created that was inspired by the Inky Paws Challenge color board:
*A full supply list is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from white cardstock. I used a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of teal paper from the Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham paper pack. Using the Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangled, I die cut a medium sized rectangle from red cardstock. I matted that red cardstock with a 4" x 3" piece of white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment "winter is warmer together" in coastal cabana ink in the top right corner. I also tied a piece of Lawn Fawn lime cord around the base of this cardstock. On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the large image of snowmen in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock. I then colored the image with Copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut out the snowmen. I adhered the snowmen to the center of the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the snowmen for added sparkle.
