2015 Christmas Card

I started by inking up a white panel with broken china and evergreen bough.  They are sublte color differences and I liked them.  I then sprayed some water in my hand and flicked it on the inked piece and let it soak up and then removed it with a paper towel.


I used my cricut and Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cartridge to create a snowflake in a square using the welding technique to put them together.  I then used the clear wink of stella to add sparkele to my snowflake.

I layered the panel onto dark green and then layered that on to a blue that matched the broken glass ink.   

Using the same cricut cartridge I cut out a solid square in white and in the blue.  I inked the edges of the white with the distress ink and used a sentiment from Stampin Up Cazy Christmas.  I used a snowflake stamps from an old stamp set and CTMH Ponderosa Pine ink - 2nd generation - to stamp them on the inside.  

The sentiment on the front was also done in Ponderosa Pine ink and a sentiment from the same old stamp set.  (I'm sorry I don't know who they are by)
