Let it snow

Let it snow is the new theme at SUO Challenges. I made a clean and simple, one layer, card for my SUO Design team entry. A clean look is definitely my thing, but I don't often do one layer cards. I love layers and embellishments, but I like to show that you don't have to have all that stuff to make a pretty card!


Endless Wishes stampin up

I CASEd this layout from a card I saw on Pinterest, made by Patricia Hayes. I love that you can achieve the look of an extra layer with simple masking and sponging! I used extra large Post-it notes and my Grid Paper to mask off a portion of the card. Stampin' Up!'s Grid Paper is such an awesome tool for keeping straight lines! I started by sponging Soft Sky over the entire area, and then sponged on Marina Mist around the edges. I used the new Endless Wishes Photopolymer stamp set and added the images with Marina Mist ink. I added a few pearls to dress it up.


Stampin' Supplies:

  • Stamps: Endless Wishes

  • Paper: Whisper White card stock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

  • Ink: Soft Sky, and Marina Mist

  • Accessories: Pearl Basic Jewels
