Brayered Bashful Blue ink at the top of a 3.5″ x 8.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
Stamped the Snowboarder at the top of the card stock with Basic Black ink.
Masked the bottom of the card stock with a post it note, put on at an angle.
Ripped another post it note in the shape of a hill and added it over the first post it note to create a second hill.
Sponged Bashful Blue at the post it note edges and onto the card stock.
Stamped the top portion of the Lovely as a tree Pine tree stamp just above the post it notes with Basic Black ink.
Remove the top post it note and sponge Almost Amethyst ink at the bottom of the hill that is revealed.
Take the remaining post it note mask and move it down to create a third hill and sponge Almost Amethyst on the second hill revealed.
Remove the post it note mask that is at the bottom and sponge Almost Amethyst ink at the bottom right corner.
Added two Elegant Eggplant panels and a Bashful Blue panel. Assemble the card front and add ribbon and brads. Use a piercing tool to start your holes for the brads.
Here is the finished card measuring 4″ x 9″. This size card fits in a standard #10 office size envelope.
I hope this tutorial has got you thinking about starting your Winter creations even though it may be 100 degrees outside.
May your day be filled to overflowing with joy.
