Winter Wonderland


Greetings! It is Wednesday, and that means another Word Wednesday Challenge over at 365 Cards!  This week, our word is "Cool."  I immediately turned my thoughts to winter and this gorgeous set by Artistic Outpost.  In addition to creating a winter scene, I also wanted to keep a rather cool color palette.  My new Distress Glitters arrived while I was at the beach so I decided there was no time like the present to jump in and give them a try.  I must admit that I think I need to go back and review the videos again on using this new product as my glitter has yet to dry, but I love the vintage glittery look.  I simply applied Embossing Ink to the card front and added Distress Glitter.  In retrospect, I think I need to stamp onto cardstock, trim, add Gel Medium, and then add the Glitter. The children were stamped on the card stock, trimmed and distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and adhered to the card front. A simple seam binding bow and an Idea-ology clip with a scrap of ribbon and cheese cloth complete my card.  I will also be submitting this card to the August Referral Program over at Artistic Outpost. Thanks for dropping by.  Hugs, Yvonne
