Happy World Card Making Day! 24

Good Morning Girls! Happy World Card Making Day! Today, I am so excited to be celebrating with you girls in the card-making community this wonderful art along with the Holiday card-making kickoff! Through card-making, I have made so many friends from around the World - as card-making is such a Universal language :) For sketch inspiration, I used Taylor's amazing sketch TESC85 in combination with this week's Crazy 4 Challenges Week 5 - Sew Happy C4C5 (The title says it ALL!) To gaze upon some gorgeous creations, I recommend visiting these girls to see their creations, as well as their DT's :) Be sure to visit Paper-Crafts site so you can hop on the blog tour & see what others have created in celebration of World Card Making Day & check back later today, as I will be sharing more of my creative side with you :) Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Here is my Winter Wishes card:

If you click the card image, it will enlarge & you will be able to see ALL the detail! Playing along with the Crazy 4 Challenges Week 5, I was Sew Happy so I hand-stitched around the DP perimeter (as I have not mastered my lil' craft sewing machine LOL :)

Using the Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder, I embossed the SU Whisper White cs to add a whole lot of texture!

Here are a few of the supplies I used to make this Winter Wishes card. The Imaginisce Polar Expressions DP is sooo beautifully patterned with many bright colors!

To make the snowflakes POP off the card, I used 3 different Martha Stewart snowflake punches, layered them x2, then sewed a PTI button in the center of each.

Ingredients Used: Stamps: Imaginisce Snowy Jo image Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers Yellow Green YG03, Pale Blue B32, Cadmium Red R27, Peach R32, Cadmium Orange YR07, Warm Grey W3, Colorless Blender 0 Paper: Imaginisce DP, SU Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Old Olive, Bazzill Pomegranate Sprinkles: Spellbinders Scalloped Circle nesties, Martha Stewart snowflake punches, PTI buttons, Michael's Basic-Basic ribbon, Cuttlebug snowflake EF, EK Success border punch

Mona--Loved this winter snowflake card. Colors are great. The enlargement was absolutely awesome. Kudos to you. Sue

Kristin Bueter said...

Oh Mona...this is super cute! I LOVE how you managed to keep the colors light and airy like just after a fresh, winter snow...and that pop of red does so much to make your card stand out even more! I LOVE your hand stitching (I'm a fellow hand-stitcher...sadly, no machine), your snowflakes with the sweet light blue buttons, and that ribbon and your coloring are amazing! Beautiful work as always :)

Well, your card is so beautiful. The little snowman is adorable, but the layered snowflakes and embossing are amazing. You make these cards look as if you just 'whip' them up in a matter of seconds. I want to be like you when I grow up, please, can I? tee hee...really, I do....
