Here is my inspiration card.

I decided to go for non-traditional colors for this card. I used the 2 Step Plaid III stencil by CrafTreat and distress oxide inks in shades of blue and pink. I started with a cream card base and inked the pink inks through the first stencil to create an ombre look. Once that dried, I used the second stencil along with shades of blue.

The sentiment is by Mudra Craft Stamps. It is a mini stamp called Christmas Wishes. I stamped it in shades of blue for an ombre look. After trimming the panel and matting it with dark blue paper, I popped it up on a vellum band.

To finish, I die-cut some snowflakes and added them to the card.

Here is another look at the completed card.

I just love the festive touch te snowflakes add to the card.

I hope you liked my card and are inspired to create something beautiful. I look forward to your entries in our gallery.
