I lightly blended card for the back panel with Chipped Sapphire and inked the snowflake from Holiday Things with the same, spritzed the inked stamp with water and made random first, second and third generation impressions. I over-stamped the darker, first generation impressions with Versamark embossing ink and embossed with Emerald Creek Fractured Ice powder. This panel is matted with black card.
I die cut a Stitched Oval and embossed with the Flurry stamp from Flurry & Pine using Emerald Creek Soft Fallen Snow and Eileen Hull's White Wonder Molten Dimensions powders. I blended with blue and brown inks and splashed with water; dried. I edged in Black Soot Archival. This kinda looks like the wintry mix we got last weekend that left everything coated with about 1/2 inch of ice.
I inked the sledding cat from Snarky Christmas and fussy cut. He is popped up on dimensional foam adhesive. I colored him with distress inks: Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Brushed Corduroy. His eyes each got a squirt of Glossy Accents. I embossed the runners with Fractured Ice powder. I added "snow" under and around the sled runners using Translucent Grit Paste sprinkled with dimensional embossing powder. When the paste dried, I blasted it with my heat tool to get that white fluffy "snow".
I cut two snowflakes using the Snowflakes 3D Impresslit from a heavy wavy textured translucent paper thicker than vellum (I think this was from a candy box) and dipped them in watery blue ink.
The sentiment is a shortened version of one in the Snarky Christmas set stamped in Chipped Sapphire. I just taped off the part of the quote I didn't want, inked it and removed the tape. This card is for my daughter, inspired by a mishap she had while sledding last weekend in some rare southern icy snow. She had a little crash and burn while avoiding another sledder. She didn't get hurt, but the sled did, and her party ended for the day. Oh, well, it's all fun and games 'til...
Thanks for stopping by! I need to go dust off my sled, because we will be getting snow flurries in the morning. Woohoo! Hugs! Sara Emily
