Hi everyone! I have a beautiful and soft Christmas card for the blog today! This one features the non-traditional color of blue against a backdrop of leafy boughs and sparkly snow! I am entering this card into the #4 Winter Challenge at WherecreativitymeetsC9.com
I laid down a watercolor background of soft blue and topped it with some stenciled and glittered snow drops. I've used this technique quite a bit recently but it's just so pretty. Once that was dry, I cut boughs from Concord & 9th's 'O Christmas Tree' die set along with some sparkly snowflakes and layered them over the background. I added in a row of shiny blue Christmas balls and also tucked in some bright, tiny stars.
You can see more of the blue in the ornaments in this picture- they are very striking in person! The sentiment was stamped in bright blue and then embossed in shiny clear powder. I tied it onto the background with shiny silver thread and added a few more stars for accent!
Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
