Hometown Greetings Snowy Day Diecut CAS Card

by Joanne James21. January 2019 08:00

Another Monday, another week! As promised, I'm back today with another card that meets the criteria for this week's challenge over at The Paper Players - this one uses the current challenge colour palette over at CAS Colours and Sketches:


Today's card has a similar layout to yesterday's with a clean and simple style - and no stamping at all on the front of my card! So here it is: 


Again I used my Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies, with a simple uncluttered design and minimal layers and embellishments. I used the challenge colours in blocks: the Crumb Cake for my card base, a panel of Balmy Blue for the sky and a pop of Real Red for the snowman's scarf which I cut by hand and adhered to his body with a little Tombo glue. For the snow on today's card, I used my retired Blizzard Thinlits die and used lots of the tiny circular diecut elements that nestle in between the larger snowflakes and stuck each of them on individually to create my falling snow. A rather painstaking exercise, but not too tricky with my handy Pick Up Tool and worth it for the overall effect.

Whilst there's no stamping on the front of my card, I did stamp a greeting on the inside, along with another pop of red (the heart is from the new Meant To Be stamp set):


Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's projects for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day; I am hoping mine is going to be a productive office day - if I get all of my admin tasks completed, i may even manage a little stamping time! I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
