Got Snow?

I love the way this little card turned out. The paper is from October Afternoon - they have some terrific papers. I'm not sure why, but as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to do a winter-themed card. I also took this opportunity to play with my Copic airbrush system.

I stamped the image on Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White and colored it with my Copic markers. I cut it out with a circle Nestability die, and while it was still in the die, I masked the image and airbrushed the sky in blue, then took it out of the die, masked the top portion and airbrushed the grass. The edges were distressed with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink. The scalloped mat is the reverse side of the patterned paper and was cut out with a scalloped Nestability die.

The card base is Papertrey Ink Kraft card stock. I wrapped the ribbon around the patterned paper, and adered it to the card base. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with a Spellbinders label die. While it was still in the die, I airbrushed it with the same markers as the sky and then distressed it with the Antique Linen ink. I also distressed the ribbon with the Antique Linen ink to tone it down and keep it more in line with the vintage look of the rest of the card. It was attached to the ribbon with two brads and then I adhered the bow to the ribbon strip with some glue dots. That's about it!

It's been a long, busy week for me - hope yours has been good! I'm looking forward to getting some stamping time in this weekend. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
