Mixed Media Snowflake Card and Free Printable

card 1
 Today I am sharing another mixed media card for my December guest designer spot at Word Art Wednesday.  I decided to go with a snowflake theme for this week's card.  I wanted to try a different version of blue than my previous mixed media snowflake tags and cards.  I embossed this nordic background in white and then dipped it in a pool of Salty Ocean Distress Ink, then repeated with small doses of Evergreen Bough and Frayed Burlap.  I really love the mix, even though it is bright!

 I diluted the same inks more and dipped my printable Scripture the same way.  Isn't this the most beautiful verse and layout?!

I couldn't resist using another Tim Holtz snowflake rosette and layered it over a purchased glittery snowflake, with the tag tucked in.  For the background I used the Tim Holtz layering stencil in stripes and sponged Salty Ocean once, then turned it sideways and sponged again to create a plaid.  The final touch was splattering watered down gesso over the entire project.

  24. Autumn, I keep saying this to myself...this is my favorite project Autumn has done! Is that even possible??? But it is so lovely, in color, in design and in it's message! Gorgeous shades of blue,and I love that Nordic layer and clever diagonal plaid you did with the Stripes stencil. I'm so stealing that idea! :)
