First, you should know that this card came out of a mistake. I stamped a sentiment in the upper right sweet spot (where the horizontal and vertical lines dividing the card into thirds intersect), and pressed a little too hard. The blurry letters that resulted frustrated me, so I set aside the card base and redid the original card, which I will show you, tomorrow maybe, because it turned out pretty cool.
This card base has that blurred sentiment under the stamped panel. You wouldn't know if I didn't tell you, which is part of what's brilliant about this hobby. Mistakes create opportunities for embellishment.
So, I stamped the snowflake stamp from Papertrey's Merry and Bright set repeatedly on a narrow white panel. I matted it by stamping the wide ribbon from Papertrey's Faux Ribbon on the base so the mat would perfectly match the shimmer of the Brilliance sky ink used on the snowflakes. Then, I went a little crazy adding bling. The sentiment came next, and I thought, hey, wouldn't it be cool if I added the little single snowflake next to the sentiment?
A stamp too far.
I really loved the card before I stamped that little flake, which might have made me happier if I had placed it a bit closer to the sentiment, but probably not. Since I added SO MUCH BLING to this card, no way was I pitching it. Perhaps you will like the little snowflake.
And that's all I have to say about that.
For those who pray...Please keep Janelle in your prayers as she battles brain cancer. She's an amazing stamper and an amazing human being.
