12074757_10154299483027222_7516093371416075335_nI chose to CASE the colours, layout and theme for my project which gave me an excellent starting point! When I saw those snowflakes in the background I immediately knew what I would use for my background. I have been just waiting for the right project to use the silver snowflake vellum page on (from the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum). Ever since I got the pack, I’ve planned to watercolour the back so that’s where I started.

I added a primitive tree using the Tree Punch and then added primitive faux stitching to the cardstock pieces. The sentiment is brand new and from a ‘coming Jan 2016’ stamp set called Enjoy the Little Things. I finished it off with some Silver Metallic Thread at the top of the tree to represent a star and shining light.

  1. Jessica – This is just GORGEOUS! I love all the stitching and the texture you’ve created with the added color on the vellum backdrop. I’m so honored that you created such a beautiful card based on my super-silly penguins. I love it and am so happy to be a GDP member with you.
