Something unexpected happened on a Tuesday (October 25th) morning 5 AM, then my cat woke me up just to let me know that dog wants to come inside. I opened the door and balcony was covered with snow. So pretty.
This card also reminds me a first snow fall in cold Autumn night. I love how it turned out.
I used Sparkle N Sprinkle Christmas Candles Digital Set 807. The rose is printed three times. From one of them I fussy cut the rose and big leaves, from second copy only the rose was fussy cut. To cut the last one, I placed a Spellbinders die template from Labels Eighteen set on top and traced the inner frame and fussy cut it out with scissors. It's much easier then Out of the Box Die Cutting technique if you have several delicate parts which goes 'out of the box'. All coloring is done with Promarkers. On top of the tiny circles I added a White Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Matting layer is die cutted out of white cardstock with same Label die I used before. I covered the edges of the label with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and added Reflection Glitter on top. Image layer is placed in center and fussy cut images was adhered with foam tape.
Can you guess from where did I got the fence image? No...? Its from same Christmas Candles Digital Set. Now you say: "But there is no fence image". You are right. I used candles instead. I placed several of them next to each other, stretched them vertically and cut off the top. What a lovely fence I got :) It's colored with Promarkers. I also added some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. Loopy Lace die cut from Die-Versions was adhered behind the fence.
Background is inked with Faded Jeans and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks. I sprinkled some water droplets on top, let them set a bit and then dried them off. Speckles of Super Thick White Embossing Powder was added to all over the background (including the fence). EP was melted from underneath the cardstock.
Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Reflection Glitter.
