Here is the inside of the card:
I'm so very behind making Christmas cards. But it's been a rather crappy first part of the year, what with my FIL passing away, my Dad's health getting worse due to Dementia, and my fur baby being diagnosed with Epilepsy, well, cards didn't get made. So, I'm endeavoring to try to catch up as much as possible.
I used a couple distress inks for the background, nice light colors, then misted it with pearl Glimmer Mist, to add some shimmer. (Gotta have shimmer!) Once that dried, I used a stencil and embossing paste to add some 'falling snow'. That panel, once dried, was adhered to the card base. The top panel was die cut with one of the new dies I mentioned above, and adhered with foam squares. All the white space around it was making me all itchy, so I framed it with some rhinestone strips. (I was so relieved when I realized the as of yet unopened pack of rhinestones came in strips! Can you imagine how friggin long it would have taken me to add them around the die cut?!!!) A simple sentiment finishes the inside.
I've made this card based off of Merry Monday #168 - Use pastels and also Can You Case It #81 - use green, blue, and purple.
