I’m participating in a fun 12 Days of Christmas blog challenge with my stamping friend Theresa to show off all the Christmas awesomeness in the soon retiring June-December 2021 Mini Catalog and 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.
For Day Two of my 12 Days of Christmas challenge I have a Polished Pink monochromatic Snowman Season card that is also inspired by this week’s Global Design Project CASE the designer challenge. I’ve CASEd this fabulous card by Kayla McCreadie from Australia by using a color on color layer on the card base, distressed DSP panel’s edges instead of using a frayed Linen Paper panel, and creating multiple layers of interest behind the focal point & sentiment. I didn’t really plan on making a Polished Pink monochromatic card but as this card came together layering the stamped sentiment on the DSP with the Polished Pink cardstock & Polished Pink Shimmer Vellum snowflakes it just evolved into one. This card is also definitely an avid card because I mixed and matched several sentiments from different stamp sets and it has multiple layers. I also used Shimmery White cardstock for the whole card – not just the card front- instead of my regular Basic White cardstock to give the card even more sparkle.
Start with a Polished Pink cs card base. Cut a Polished Pink cs panel and glue it to the card base. Cut a Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP panel and stamp the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set and the snowflakes from the Snowman Season stamp set in Polished Pink ink across the bottom left of the Specialty DSP panel.
Then use paper snips to gently distressed the Specialty DSP panel’s edges and glue to the card front.
Stamp the snowman from the Snowman Season stamp set in Polished Pink ink on Shimmery White cardstock. Use your Wink of Stella brush to add Polished Pink ink to color the snowman. Die cut out the image with the Layering Circles dies. Die cut Polished Pink cardstock and Polished Pink 2021-2023 Shimmer Vellum snowflakes with the Stitched Snowflake dies. Add the image circle to the card front overlapping the stamped sentiment/snowflakes with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Be sure to place the Stampin’ Dimensionals in the center of the image circle. Then use glue and glue dots to tuck the die cut snowflakes around the image circle.
Die cut a Shimmery White cardstock sentiment label with the Frightful Tags dies. Stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Deer stamp set in Polished Pink ink. Add Polished Pink color to the label’s edges with your Wink of Stella brush. Use glue dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the sentiment label to the card front across the bottom of the image circle and Specialty DSP panel.
Tie a small bow with White Baker’s Twine and use glue dots to add it to the left corner of the sentiment label and overlapping the image circle. Add Opal Rounds to the card front around the image circle.
Don’t forget to add a Shimmery White cardstock inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Polished Pink ink. Stamp the snowflakes from the Snowman Season in 1st & 2nd Polished Pink ink. I also added a strip of Specialty DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
