Can You Case It? Peace

Hey Everyone,

The bi-weekly Can You Case It? challenge is a color challenge this time around.  I love the colors that Wynn, a design team member, came up with for this challenge.  They seem so calm and peaceful to me.  For this card I was inspired not only by these colors, but also by a card Richard Garay demonstrated in a video this week.  I will share the link to his video at the end of this post.

So here is how I did it:

First, I used our Clear Pigment Ink and white embossing powder to emboss the white snowflakes. I embossed them on our Color Splash paper.  After the snowflakes were embossed I used Fun Stampers Journey Color Burst Pencils, and our Blending Brush to create the background of my card.  I used the #25, #27, and #33 pencils.  This is the technique Richard did that inspired my card. Next I stamped the word Peace,  from the Holiday Script Bundle with the Clear Pigment Ink and used Silver Embossing Powder on Vellum.  The leaves were from the Autumn Time Bundle. I really like to use stamps in an outside the box kinda way. Like the autumn leaf as a Christmas y leaf.  I stamped with clear pigment ink on our Brush Silver cardstock. This was also used for the 2nd layer on the card.  I love the look of silver emboss on Silver Brush CS. .  I used the Pocket Cuts Die for the stitched look on the Deep Lilac cardstock.  The embellishments I used were the Cut Rhinestones. The base of my card is Whip Cream cardstock.
