Welcome! It is cold and snowy outside here in NE Ohio! We’ve got about a foot of snow on the ground at the moment and my kiddo is sick and tired of having snow days!
Kat Scrappiness has recently started holding monthly card challenges, and this month’s card challenge is CAS. Clean and Simple is the task for the month if you’d like to apply, and if you’re wondering what that means, Heidi Randazzo of Blue Scallop Creations wrote an amazing blog about it which you can read here. To apply for the Kat Scrappiness challenge, upload your image to this blog post. You could win a $25 gift certificate to the Kat Scrappiness store!
The image Heidi gave us to work with, was this one, and I took it quite literally:
What I see when I look at this image are blue snowflakes and movement. Keeping that in mind, and thinking about Kat’s amazing sequins, and I just KNEW the card that I had to make!
I started by cutting a white panel out of Neenah Solar White cardstock in 80lb using the largest of the new Distressed Rectangle Dies by Kat Scrappiness. Then I die cut the sentiment “snowflake kisses,” which is also a die from Kat Scrappiness. While my card panel was still on my cutting plate, and with the sentiment still inside it, I pressed Glade Press and Seal over the sentiment.
Very carefully I removed the sentiment from the cut image while keeping the inside parts of the letters attached to the press and seal. You could save the positive part of the sentiment for another card, but I cut mine out as I removed it as I found that easier. Then I glued all of the negative bits of the die cut, all the little nooks and crannies, and everything around the sentiment with Ranger Multi Medium Matte to some acetate.
While that was drying I die cut a piece of white fun foam using that same large rectangle die and cut out the inner section directly behind the sentiment. I also trimmed down the outside edges of the fun foam as sometimes fun foam squishes and cuts larger than desired.
Using Scor-Tape I adhered the fun foam to my white card panel. I adhered Scor-Tape to the back side of the fun foam and partially stuck that onto my card base leaving enough space to sneak in some sequins into the shaker section. Then I finished sealing it up!
This was a fun card to work on, and I just LOVE the pop of color! If you’re interested in any of these products from, you can buy yours at Kat Scrappiness using the discount code: HANNAH10!
