Just Add Ink and Layer Up

Hello friends!

I have a very inky card to share today. Perhaps it's the weather's doing that I want to layer up. This card has tons of textures and ink and images, but it is certainly not bulky. 

I am using the snowflake stamps from Penny Black. HERE is another similar set that you can try with the various techniques that I share.

I started out with an Distress Oxide Sprayed-paper. Once in a while, I like to spray ink on paper just for fun. Then when creativity trikes, I have my ready-made DIY paper to use.

I stamped and embossed the two large snowflake. The top one was stamped in Faded Jean Distress Oxide first and then clear-embossed.

The bottom snowflake was white-embossed. Once that were all done, I stamped some more smaller snowflake to fill up the space.


The surface of this card is snowflake-studded, it is hard to stamp the sentiment over it. I chose the semi see-through Cozy border die and add the white-embossed sentiment on it. That seems to do the trick!

 I hope that your day is full of delight and joy.
