Needlepoint-Inspired Snow

This week, Merry Monday's challenge is Let It Snow:


I was inspired by something I saw when on needlepoint.com:


I love that Nordic look and in fact I have a red winter sweater with white snowflakes in that style.  Here's my card:


I used my Tim Holtz stencil with white embossing paste on red cs. I layered a sentiment tag over a section of embossing that smudged badly.   I used "let it snow" as the sentiment in keeping with the Merry Monday challenge and embellished with a wooden snowflake.

I'm also posting it on SCS for the Inspiration Challenge.





Supplies:
Stamps - unknown sentiment
Ink - ColorBox Chianti
Paper - red and white cs
Size - A2
Accessories - Tim Holtz stencil, Dreamweaver white embossing paste, clear embossing powder, SU wooden snowflake, Nesties sentiment label, seam binding, fun foam

  2. This looks like a warm, cozy Christmas sweater! Love the white embossing on the red and the tag is perfect! The smudge turned out to be a good thing.

  9. This couldn't be more perfect from your inspiration, Susan! Love the stencil and the idea of using colored cardstock, something I never think to do. Great job with the paste too. I may just have to have that stencil.
