Today’s inspiration graphic has a limited color palette and it’s soooooo beautiful and elegant!!!! The design of this project is a take on my own card that I made a few years ago! It’s still so popular on Pinterest that I decided to recreate it using Craftin Desert Divas products!

First of all I made a bit of die-cutting preparing the circle window and the winter scene. I really love Fall Border Dies set since it’s so beautiful and versatile! You can cover the themes all year round with it!!! For the card base I used a very light blue cardstock and added some texture with a winter feel through Snowflake Flurries Stencil. Once the embossing paste was dry, I started assembling the whole scene giving a lot of dimension with a foam tape and finally added faux snow using Snow Marker. Here’s a little tip for you: for a better control I squeeze the liquid from the marker on a piece of paper or acetate and use a tooth pick to apply the liquid to the desirable spots. Snow Marker needs to be heat settled with a heat gun! But be sure not to overheat it since it can start looking burnt and assume brown shades! Guess how I know it!!! LOL!!!
