Challenge me a Christmas Card with Jessica Frost Ballas

Welcome to "Challenge me a Christmas Card" for 2019! I have asked cardmaking friends to join me in the lead up to Christmas by challenging me to make a card using a specific style, theme, technique or product.

My guest for today is Jessica Frost Ballas of All the Sparkle. Jessica has challenged me to make a card with this colour scheme:

You can check out her take on the challenge HERE

Here's what I came up with:

I used the Winter Floral Mix background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, white embossed onto Neenah Solar WHite cardstock. I coloured the image with Copic markers, and then sprayed the panel with Frost White Fantastix ink mixed with rubbing alcohol to try to mimic the frost on the colour scheme image. I stamped and white embossed the sentiment onto a burgundy card base, and I then cut the stamped and coloured panel on an angle and adhered it to the card base.

 Thanks for visiting :)
