So where are my kings? Well, I don't need kings, I just needed three of something and my three of something happens to be those little evergreen trees.
I recently treated myself to the Ocean Borders background stamp from Sweet Honey Bee stamps which I thought could look kind of blizzardy done in white on a dark blue background for this card. The jury is out on that as the embossing is a little suspect even though I did use my Misti. Here's what I did wrong - I cut my paper to the size I wanted it to be finished before I stamped it instead of cutting it larger and trimming it down. It was the wrong way because I wanted the pattern to go to the edges of the paper and that meant I had to pull it away from the inside edge of the Misti but..... since I was using the whole of the stamp, I couldn't use the magnets directly on the cardstock. I thought if I attached some post-its to the back of the cardstock so I had something to hold the paper down with I could make it work, but it moved and blurred when I restamped it. But........ it didn't look all that bad for a blizzard so I stuck with it. Next time I will trim down the paper. Lesson learned.
I was glad I remembered the large snowflake die instead of using a standard geometric shape. I really didn't want to cover too much of the background and originally tried using vellum, but then decided against that and I'm pretty happy that I did.
So....... I have another card in mind for this challenge, but alas, it's coming to it's two-week close so I'll save that for another time. Won't you take a peak with me at all the other wonderful creations the Jingle Belles have come up with for this challenge? Just click here.
