Today's card came together fairly quickly, once decisions were made about which dies to use. I'm not going into depth about the dies used, but if you want the info, let me know. I'll just explain a bit about the creation of it. Here goes:
- white card base was embossed, just a bit peeking out behind the popped up S/B die cut,. The die cut paper was VOS indeed. Found in the stash, though the swirls were evocative of a snowstorm. There is a noticeable difference in the white colors, since the swirled paper is quite old, but I rather liked the look.
- IO Santa sleigh & IO tree die, Sweet Stamps reindeer & MBox joy sentiment. All these dies were cut from a white snippet that has been floating around the desk for a while. To get the pearly glisten, a wet brush was swiped over a Mica Color Stargazer iridescent white (see below) and painted the shapes. Was quite pleased with the effect achieved, as I couldn't find any white pearlized paper. Good to know I can do this.
This is another VOS product...comes in handy when I rediscover it time after time!
