Getting Side Tracked!


I had every good intention of sitting down and getting right to making my DH an anniversary card. Tomorrow will be 32 wonderful years! We have been very blessed.
Well, the bottom line is that I started doing the Hip To Be Square blog hop over at Gina K. Designs, first thing this morning, and I heard my set that was cut out but never inky, calling my name! It was saying "Pssst!, you over there, don't ya think I would be fun to play with?" It was more than I could take so this is what I made.
The only real part of this card that is from the HTBS set is the window grid. It is such a great part though, because it gives you that blank canvas to start on. I layed post it notes around the inside frame and sponged with Versamark Aegean Blue chalk ink. It is funny, because I had it all over my hands and it was very blue, but as you can see, it sponged like a dark snowy sky. Go figure! I added a little snowman from the Tags & More set and a line of trees from Lovely As A Tree. Both are SU sets. I used Liquid Applique to show dimensional snow. The trees were lightly outlined with diamond Stickles for sparkle. My sentiment is an unknown. I used white, cranberry tart, and onyx black Pure Luxury card stock for my my layers. I used an iridescent ribbon for my bow to tie in the glitz of the trees.
Time to make that card for hubby! Have a great day!
