Thanks for joining me today. This card is part of the “Peace On Earth” Instagram hop. This release came out October 7th and is filled with so many amazing products!
I started by directly blending Pink Fresh Mint ink onto a white cardbase. I kept it heavier on the bottom and gradually blended it out into the white of the base. Using some Perfect Pearls mixed with water, I splattered the base for a snowy look.
Next, I cut some gorgeous “minty” metallic kraft cardstock by Tim Holtz with the Laurel Leaves Background Plate. It was the perfect match to the ink blending! I cut a few branches off so I could make room for my sentiment. I did add foam tape to the back of the die cut panel and added it to the base. You could also cut the panel from fun foam or cardstock to add dimension.
For the sentiment, I cut the “Rejoice” from pink glitter cardstock and 2 times from white for dimension. I wanted a fun snow look so the Snowflake Mandala was cut multiple times from a white shimmery cardstock. I added the Rejoice sentiment and snowflakes with liquid glue. In my stash, I had some left over diamond dots from a previous project that were perfect as berries to my leaves.
