It's time for a brand new prompt at Jingle Belles and this one (imo!) is a bit challenging! For "Cardstock Christmas" we're asking you to step away from commercial patterned paper and create with CARDSTOCK; of course you can stamp it, emboss it, paint it, diecut it, glitter it, tear it and do pretty much anything else you can think of, so put your thinking cap on and join the fun!
At first glance, you may think I've cheated and used a cloudy patterned paper, but no... it's Avery Elle's Cloud Mat Die, on which I've used the "inset" diecutting technique. I cut the background from a rich colonial blue cardstock, the clouds from bright white and the frame from a pebbly texture of lime green. I used an older Memory Box pine tree with an appropriately deep green cardstock, and Tim Holtz's "Reindeer Flight" on copper glitter cardstock. The snowflake is Impression Obsession and cut from ivory shimmer cardstock, held on with an Eyelet Outlet Snowflake Brad. The sentiment flag is from Making Memories, I think, which gives you an idea of juuuussssst how many years that thing has been lurking in my stash, lol!
