Hello, and happy Monday! Today's card was created for the latest Jingle Belles photo challenge. I have to be honest...I would never think to put orange on a Christmas card so this one perplexed me for a few minutes until I remembered my fun Simon Says Stamp set Hand Lettered Winter Wishes. I love the graphic diagonal stripe and bold sentiments in this set and thought it might be fun to combine them with some traditional blue and white cardstock for a fun mix of colors. I started by stamping the sentiment from the SSS stamp set directly onto my card base using Memento tangelo ink. I then die cut a piece of white cardstock using a pierced scalloped edge rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs and cut down one edge for a fun border to my blue and white patterned paper from Gina K Designs. I stamped the diagonal border onto some white cardstock using the same Memento ink and cut it down into a thin strip and layered it onto my patterned paper. I die cut a few snowflakes in two different sizes and colored one using the Memento tangelo ink and adhered them together using a glue dot and then glued them down to the card panel. I popped the entire focal panel up off of the card using some inexpensive fun foam from Hobby Lobby. I finished the card off by adding some enamel dots from Simple Stories Life Documented and some Recollections clear rhinestones. For some additional sparkle and shine I added some clear Spectrum Noir glitter pen to the snowflakes and the sentiment.
