Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #38


This is my card (Click photo for enlarged view) for Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #38. This weekend's hostess is Cassie.
Her colors are:
Sage Shadow
Apricot Appeal
Close To Cocoa
Opt. Really Rust
Neutrals: white or vanilla

I had this idea in my mind to make a snow card using the Cool Ride sentiment as a play on words. Wonder if anyone, besides myself will get it. Hee.

WHAT I DID: I used the stair step fold technique. My card base is Close To Cocoa. I cut out white panels and punched the Martha Stewart Around the Page Snowflake border punch than cut it to size for all three panels. I then placed micro brads on some of the snowflakes. I stamped the new release FORD COUPE 1939 from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS on watercolor paper and using the ink pads of the chosen colors and an aqua pen I watercolored and cut out and popped up the image with dimensionals. My sentiments are a new release COOL RIDE also from CDS. I stamped the Cool Ride on the front and embossed it then punched out two 3/16" holes and threaded the ribbon through and knotted it. The back sentiments I stamped the rust one first and then the others (not embossed). I had trouble with this turning out and you can see my stamp mess ups on the senitiments, but I was not about to scrap this one. It is for my Step-father for his birthday that is in December. I think it will work.

Thank you for visiting!
