Sending Warm Winter Wishes

We're expecting lots of rain around here over the next few days courtesy of Hurricane Sandy, but I went with a different type of precipitation for my card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use kraft cardstock. I used this week's Clean and Simple Stamping sketch to create this wintery design.

I stamped snowflake images from the WPlus9 Folk Art Flurries set in white pigment ink on a kraft panel, then added the sentiment in red ink for contrast.  The center of each flake is dotted with a clear crystal for some ice-like sparkle. 

I attached a red and cream striped paper panel to the bottom of a cream card base and topped the patterned panel with a strip of red faux suede ribbon for some texture.  The image panel is layered over the patterned paper, finishing a simple and easy to reproduce winter holiday card.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  WPlus9 Folk Arts Flurries and Winter Wishes stamp sets, Tsukineko Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink, Lily Bee Design Christmas Cheer Tiny Tablet, May Arts red faux suede ribbon, KaiserCraft clear gems

other:  Fresh Snow ink, Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Riding Hood Red and Very Vanilla cardstock (Stampin' Up!)
