Winter Wishes



Yay, it's blog hop day!

Hello, here for the Lawn Fawn blog hop? (you should have come from Bev's Happy Dance.  If you're a bit lost, or want to know what on earth I'm talking about you can return to Lawnscaping here to find out all the details and the prizes on offer)



Hope you've got a comfy seat and a cup of something warm, if you've made it this far you're doing well, you're half way through!  I'll try and keep my post short ....

I used Lawn Fawn's Frosties stamp set













to make the cascading snowflakes down the card background, these were heat embossed in white, and then sponged over with light blue, pink and violet inks.

I typed my sentiment on the computer then used Photoshop to bend and angle the text which I put inside a white frame.  Next I added a colour gradient background in similar colours to the inks I'd used.  Then, the fun part - I printed onto white card and fussy cut away all of the background leaving just the text and frame which I stuck over the snowflake background.  I was a bit worried that I'd lost the dots over the letter i's so added some sequins to replace them, then, 'cos I like sequins stuck on a few more!  And ta daaaah, one winter card in softly muted wintery colours, hope you like it!

That's it, I'm done, don't forget to leave me a comment to say you've stopped by, and your next stop on the hop is Tamara.  Thanks for visiting!
