Wintery Starry Night :)

Hi Crafty peeps,

Today's card is a song inspired one. So straight away to the card.

Loads of crazy inking and embossing went into this card. As the sentiment says.....and one of my favorite song "All i want for Christmas is You" by Michael Buble.

Whenever i hear it...it just takes me to this kind of starry, snowy, wintery, christmassy feel.... and i tried to bring a bit of it, here for you.

Its a 5x7 card. Watercolor card is distressed with series of Distress inks from various shades of blue - tumbled glass, broken china, stormy sky.

Moon was made by masking it with circle post it note patch and the stars of various sizes are stamped with versamark and embossed with the Zing white opaque Embossing powder (Ep).

And i purposely avoided the antistatic bag to give those white snowy effect on the top of the card.

Bottom edges of card are smooshed with versamark pad and embossed with Zing white opaque Ep.

Couple diecut from black cs is added to the scene.

Sentiment is Dymo label maker generated and the diecut You is from SSS, and its embossed with Wow baby blue glitter Ep.

This is matted with black cs to give defined look to the scene, followed by white base cs. And a heart pearl between them as final touch.

Hear it and see...Did the card resonating the same feel ?

Love to hear it from you all :)

Birthday Wishes!

Very Happy Birthday to Me :D

Made this card to wish few friends who share my birthdate :)

Stamped the Swirls background stamp using versamark ink and heat embossed using White opaque EP. Then distressed with Green bough DI. Then using Spellbinders A2 matting basics, diecut corresponding mattings and again distressed the edges to give defined look.

Just to give dimensions to layers, using foam adhesive , stuck the outer layer and the mid layer just on the base cardstock. And the mid layer again stuck using the foam adhesive and IBS sentiment is stamped on a banner and distressed using Green bough DI.

The butterfly diecut is colored using colorbox pigment inks and embossed using UTEE clear EP and pink butterfly diecut using Zing baby pink glitter EP. Then vellum diecut butterflies were matted to soften the overall look.

Hope you like it!
