Festive Friday Blog Hop Design 5

Welcome to your next stop on the Festive Friday Blog Hop.  You should have just came from Cheryl Lindsay’s Blog – Cherlin - Ink.

Card number five is based on my theme for my Christmas Cards this year, which is Snow.  The card is my first vertical card 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” when folded and was constructed on Blue card stock made by Canson (I have had it for years!)  I then added a frosted vellum to the blue Canson paper.  I stamped the vellum with dye ink (navy, blue and turquoise) with the snowflake stamps.  I then discovered my Blow Pens (I bought these for an art education class I had only used them once) I used them around the edges of the vellum - side note:  FUN!  FUN!  FUN!  I attached a piece of 1/4" Metal Tape to the vellum.  The metal embellishment was made from an old cereal box and covered with metal tape, I embossed the tape over the snowflake stamp before adhering it to the cardboard.  I also wrote Let it Snow on the metal tape embellishment.  The ribbon was given to me by my grandmother.  The snowman image was a Hallmark Design by Lynda Calvert-Weyant.  I was given a stack of artist portfolio sheets when I was at SCAD and I never used them but I kept them.  I really liked the snowman and thought it would add a little more to the card.
