For today’s card I used some brand new stamps from Lawn Fawn called Joy to the Woods along with the coordinating craft dies.
Although a little more time consuming than some of my other cards, I have to say I really enjoyed putting this scene together. I love it when a card can have lots of elements yet still have a clean feel to it’s design, and I think that it’s all the white space and clean lines of the images and elements that contribute to this effect for this card.
Notice the beautiful soft snowy background? It all started with a gorgeous bokeh patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Snow Day 6×6 petite paper pack. I expanded on the effect by creating a little more dimension using my Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil and my white Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste. I then glitzed it up with some of Wow! Embossing Powder’s Clear Sparkle Embossing glitter.
In addition to the snowfall background paper I also used a couple of other patterns from the paper pack to create the frame and the banner. I LOVE all the patterns the come in the paper pack and can’t wait to use more of them!
