Another Challenge Combo!

Hello and welcome back! I'm really on a roll lately - this is my 6th blog post in 9 days! Today's card was inspired by the "All About the Base!" challenge at The Paper Plunge, the sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches, and the designers choice challenge at Can You Case It.

So here is the card:

The sketch showed a square card, and even though I usually make a standard A2 card, I decided to try to stay true to the sketch. I already had a piece of the Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", and not wanting to waste any of it, I scored it at 3 inches and adapted it by adding the embossed layer. I used the "vintage" Festive Flurry framelits to cut the snowflakes out of the Soft Sky square, then embossed it with the Softly Falling embossing folder. 

It's hard to see in the pictures, but I used a sponge dauber and Whisper White Craft Ink to bring out the embossed snow. After attaching the embossed layer to the card front, I inlaid two of the stamped snowflakes on the card front, then added the third to the inside of the card through the cutout, popping it up with a Stampin' Dimensional.

I stamped the front sentiment from the "vintage" Greetings of the Season stamp set and used one of the Chalk Talk framelits to cut it out. To get the look for the sentiment piece, I covered the back with Fast Fuse, then took a piece of the white jute ribbon and separated the fibers to get the threads. I just looped them and stuck them on the back, then attached it to the front of the card with dimensionals.

I hope you like today's card!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
