Our Craft Lounge: Snowy Sayings II

Maren Benedict's card in the current issue of Paper Crafts Magazine (Pg. 49) inspired me to dig out my Candy Wrapper paper by My Mind's Eye, along with some Spellbinders' Nesties, and here's my result, another fun little card for winter or Christmas. I thought this flower die was perfect with this paper. For some reason I seem to be on a ric rac kick lately, but the first one I chose from my stash was too blue (not aqua enough) so I grabbed my Copic BG000 Pale Aqua and colored a white ric rac & my Copic R29 Lipstick Red to color my clear tiny stars and easily created two complimentary little details for my card -- love being able to do that! I also once again only embossed the same die I'd just used to cut my sentiment label & simply cut around the outside edge to give that extra little color layer behind the aqua. It takes very little time, but adds a lot, I think!
