Can you believe we reached the hundredth mark this week? Holy Molly, that's a lot of projects created over the last couple of years that were inspired by Keesh's challenges! For this week's Inkspirations challenge, we are doing a very simple and a propos theme: Christmas! It's as simple as that. Just come dazzle us with your wonderful Christmas creations!
My creation today is something simple and elegant I put together with the use of my Simply Scored board and the beautiful Serene Snowflakes set. Every year, I have to make at least one sepia snowflakes creation. I can't help, I just like how elegant it looks.
The starting point of this card was the middle square, which I created by inking an acrylic block with Crumb Cake ink and "stamping" it on Very Vanilla cardstock. I then masked the sides with Post-It notes and added snowflakes using Crumb Cake ink. I then took the masks off and added a bigger snowflakes in Soft Suede in the corner and the beautiful Christmas sentiment from the Delightful Dozen set at the top. I love how it almost look like the snowflake and sentiment were stamped with copper ink.
Then, using the Simply Scored tool, I created a frame around the image and added stripes on all four sides of the frame. Using a Soft Suede marker, I inked only one of the small snowflakes and used my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to add them to the corners. I matted the image, added a pearl on the big snowflake and mounted the cardstock on my card base. Presto! A new beautiful card all done in less than half an hour.
