Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. Today I am sharing another card that I made for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #114. This week we have a sketch challenge to inspire you. If you missed last week's post, here is the first card I designed using this sketch. 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 sketch seen below:
*Full supply list (with shopping links) is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of miscellaneous blue patterned and adhered it directly to the card base. Using the Hello Bluebird Gallery Frame #2 die, I cut the frame from blue cardstock. I lined the back of the frame with a piece of Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. On this lining, I stamped the sentiment in red ink and a couple snowflakes in light blue ink. I then made a small shaker card component out of the small bottom piece of the frame. I filled the shaker with icy glitter. I stamped the snowman from the Frozen Friends stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and then I fussy cut the snowmen out with small craft scissors. I added a little color to the snowmen with Copic markers. I placed a thin strip of red cardstock below the snowmen to ground them and to separate them from the shaker component. Lastly, I added a small bow from white glitter twine to the left side of the card.
