Happy Holidays

Here's my card for this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I made another holiday card in a non-traditional color scheme.  I went with more blues and silver again.  This time, my blues came from Clear and Simple Stamps.  Their selection of blue cardstock colors is fabulous!

Happy Holidays card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Clear and Simple Stamps
I started the card with a My Favorite Blue Jeans card base.  To add some shimmer and shine, I adhered a dot embossed Sterling Silver cardstock strip across the bottom of the card base.  The Trendsetter Blue image panel was covered with a trio of silver snowflakes cut with the Flurries die set.  Each flurry was adhered with foam tape, then dotted at the center with a large clear crystal.  The bottom of the panel was stamped with the "happy holidays" sentiment stamp from the Duly Noted set.  I used blue pigment ink and my MISTI to get a good impression from this solid stamp.  After matting the panel on contrasting True Blue Fan cardstock, I adhered it to the card base.

Materials Used:
Duly Noted stamp set, Trendsetter Blue, True Blue Fan, My Favorite Blue Jeans, and Sterling Silver cardstock, Flurries dies (Clear and Simple Stamps); Memento Luxe Bahama Blue ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Swiss Dot embossing folder (Cuttlebug); clear crystals
