I really like the contrast of a cool blue shade, such as Pool Party, mixed with the deep rich red of Cherry Cobbler. Paired with any neutral such as Crumb Cake or Basic Gray and it's heaven on cardstock! My mojo seems to have taken an early holiday, so I took inspiration from a card I designed previously to create this for you:
Pretty simple really, using the Triple Stamping Technique. The graduated sizes of Whisper White cardstock, largest to smallest, are 4" x 5.25", 3" x 4.25" and 2" x 3.25". I held each layer together with removable adhesive and then stamped, stamped and stamped! The Snowflake Soiree set really is so lovely and makes for elegant snowflakes.
I inked the smallest snowflake and the More Merry Messages sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed them all with Pewter embossing powder. It's a little darker than silver and, in my opinion, shows up better on the white cardstock. On the third matted layer, I wanted to mix it up a little and instead of using another layer of Pool Party I added some glitz with Silver Glimmer Paper. Love the stuff!
I do hope you'll find a little time this week to join in our color challenge. Be sure to pop over to The Paper Players to see all the lovely inspiration from my gal pals on the design team. They outdid themselves this week! Our challenge ends Friday, December 14th at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by!
