Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I hope your weekend will be wonderful!
I made this card for today's limited supply challenge on SCS, which was to only use white cs, no designer paper, only white or clear embellishments, and only one color of ink, plus limit the layers. I combined it with this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge, which was to use a gift on our card. Well.... my "gift" is the sentiment. Truly this is the greatest gift of all... the gift of God's Son, which we celebrate on Dec. 25th but rejoice over all year long, because truly the gift is indescribable! When I think that the Creator of the Universe loved us so much that He sent His Son... perfect and sinless to pay the price for our sin so that we could be reconciled to Him and live in relationship with Him, and eventually spend eternity with Him in heaven, I am truly awestruck!
I used two Newly Released Our Daily Bread designs sets: "Peace and Joy" for the big snowflake image and "His Gift" for the sentiment. I have wanted to make a window card with this image since I saw it, so today with my limited layers was the day! I placed the largest die cut snowflake from Spellbinder's Create A Flake where I wanted my window and ran it through the Big Shot. I embossed the large snowflake and centered on the inside of the card right behind and lined up with the die cut opening. When the card is closed, the stamped image actually fits well in the cut out. I embossed the sentiment and tucked it in to the snowflake cut out. It is removable as a bookmark or even a verse to put on your frig.
I used many die cut snowflakes that I glittered with Dazzling Diamonds for the front, sponged the matting for the inside snowflake with Brilliance Silver and added a snowflake ribbon by Make it Christmas.
On the inside I have my embossed snowflake which I edged with Silver Brilliance Ink, and then I matted that on a white square I had sponged with the same ink to give a little definition.
How about that!!! I made a card that really is ONE single Layer!!! I need to mark this date! LOL! Most of you know I'm not comfortable without several layers, but this has it's own charm.
Thanks for looking and have a blessed weekend!
