I'm here to share a bright, cheery card for the Waffle Flower stenciling technique challenge.
I love winter days when the sky is blue and minute gleaming snowflakes called diamond dust are wafting down from a seemingly blue sky. Everything looks iridescent and there are very faint hues of pink and blue in the sky. That's the inspiration for this card.
My sentiment is from the Waffle Flower - Flower Circles stamp set. I stamped it on a scrap of white cardstock with Versafine ink in Smokey Gray and heat embossed it with clear powder. I stenciled over the top of it with the same doily and DI, too. I used dark pink DCWV scraps for matting and rounded the corners of everything with my WRMK Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper.
As I was putting my card elements together, I felt like it needed something else. On a whim, I cut a wedge of the (now pink) doily that I used as my stencil and placed it in the corner for a fanciful bit of sunshine. I love it!! :) A bright gingham ribbon and a few little snowflakes scattered here and there just for fun finished it all off.
Thanks for stopping by today. And thank you so much for all the amazing comments you gave me on my Joyeux Noel card. I am delighted and encouraged with your response!!!
Hope your week is awesome!!!
