I’ve been fangirling (I can fangirl, right?) over the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper since it first made its way into my life. I LOVE the gorgeous patterns in this pack of paper – the photo-real pages are PERFECT for this time of year and are beautifully coordinated with Stampin’ Up!’ colors. I was excited to showcase this snowy tree branch from Feels Like Frost for this week’s FabFriday sketch challenge – I love the blues! Here’s my card:
And here’s the FabFriday sketch that inspired my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Feels Like Frost. You might not initially consider Highland Heather, Balmy Blue and Seaside Spray as colors that are perfect for Winter, but the gorgeous pages of Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper build a solid argument for why these colors belong with a frosty scene. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper: Want to see more? You can CLICK HERE on the image below to see each of the pages in this pack of papers: The sentiment on this card is stamped on 3/8″ tall strips of Thick Whisper White cardstock with Night of Navy ink and popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s a look at this incredible stamp set (carried over from last year’s Holiday Catalog into this year’s Annual Catalog: While I didn’t use them on this card, the Merry Christmas Dies (sold separately) are beautifully coordinated with this stamp set. You can see those dies here.
- A Touch of Vellum. The construction of this card is quite simple – paper layered on paper for a simple layout that is “wow” because of the gorgeous background panel. There’s another element on this card, though, that I want to point out – the vellum banners at the base of the sentiment circle. Here’s a closer look:I cropped 3/4″ strips of Vellum Cardstock, broke the fibers a bit by running them through my bone folder (makes them softer and less stiff) and then slid each one into the top of my Tailored Tag Punch to snip banner edges. Here’s one of my all-time favorite punches, the Tailored Tag Punch:
- Christmas Blue. Blue is such an all-seasons color. It’s “blue skies and ocean” in summer and “icy tundra” in winter. I love blues at Christmas. I adore this mix of Balmy Blue and Night of Navy in the snowy scene on this card – and all the white only enhances the power of each of the blues. If you like this mix of blues as much as I do, please save this:
