I’m super excited to be a “Guest Sweetie” today over at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog! Have you heard about them? This is such a SWEET Challenge Group! For each challenge they post an amazing cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?
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!!!
Hope you like this simple card and make sure you pop over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog to see more amazing projects today! As always thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate your love and support!
