Frosted Joy

Happy Hump Day Everyone!  Here we are sneaking up on Christmas quicker than I am ready for!  I don't know about you but I've still got much to do.  I haven't spent much time in my craft room lately. Today I'm sharing a card I made on Saturday when it was so bitterly cold outside.  I used the sketch from one of my favorite challenge blogs, Unscripted Sketches for this card.     




I used paper from the Frosted paper pack for this card.  This blue snowflake piece of paper is my favorite out of this whole pack.  I used Framework Alphabet to stamp the word JOY.  I love the line drawn look of this alphabet stamp so in order to keep the drawn lines showing I stamped JOY onto the Champagne Cardstock and then again onto the Frosted Turquoise Cardstock.  The Frosted Turquoise letters were cut out and adhered on top of the stamped letters on the Champagne cardstock.  Look closely at the picture to the left - you can see the drawn lines.  The strip across the front of the card is one of the zip strips from the paper pack.  The Mocha Opaques Adhesive Gems creates a more vintage look for this card.   These pretty little gems were one of my all time favorite for embellishing and they will be retiring soon!  

Products Used:
Frosted Paper Pack (X7175B)
Framework Alphabet (E1027)
Mocha Opaque Adhesive Gems (Z1333)
Champagne Ink (Z2174)
