Soft as the new-fallen snow...

An entry to this week's Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge:

Gypsy and Sky

They seemed just the right colours for some snowflakes, given that we've had about 8" more snow fall since 2:00 am this morning. 
This is the view out my third floor craft room/study.  Grey and snowy day in the nation's capitol! Could use some of those soothing colours...

Back to the card: I used the sentiment from CTMH C1428 "Ice Crystals" which is a build-a-snowflake set, embossed with clear detail powder, then sponged on Sky and Gypsy inks to reveal the message. Also broke out some beautiful new snowflake dies from Lil'Inker, as well as using their square stitched mat dies to emboss the edge of the card.

I'll be cranking out a few dozen of these to send as Christmas thank-yous.
Happy winter,


  1. The snow looks so fresh and soft, Caroline! Pretty!

    Love your card - such a clever way to showcase the sentiment!

  2. Gorgeous card, Caroline. I like how you didn't use pure white as your neutral. It gives it a very soft look. Thanks for playing along this week at Color My Heart!


  3. Snow, snow, go away is what I say. We got 6+ inches in my neck of the woods and I'm ready for spring already!! Gorgeous card! Love the CAS style.


  4. Hmmmm more Lil Inker dies to die for ;-) Very very pretty with the sponging!!

  5. Your card is so beautiful, soft and subtle colors are the perfect choice I think. Love the blending as well!

  6. This is gorgeous! Love the misting and the great snowflakes. Happy 2013!

  7. Ooooo I love how you sponged the color! Soft as snow for sure! :)

  8. oh I am so loving all that snow and the snowflakes on your card are gorgeous...

    Happy New Year..

  9. Hi Caroline - pretty card!! Thanks for your comment on my Display Tray post on my blog. To answer your question - the faces of the children are blanked out using a function called 'pixelating' in my photo editing software. Hope that helps.

  10. Gorgeous card, Caroline! I love the sponging around the sentiment and it's awesome to see you using all these Lil' Inker products!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
