This week I am playing along with CASology - the current cue card is "Soft". Well we have had our first real snowfall of the winter season and I always think that the white blanket of snow gives the world a hushed softness - that was my inspiration for this card. I wanted a white on white soft touch with a highlight of soft colour. Here is my card:
The house die is an old one from Memory Box that I forgot I had. I used MFT stitched hill dies to create the hill and sponged the back panel with Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Inks. I wanted the colour to fade softly from dark to light. I added some texture paste snowfall with the SSS Falling Snow stencil. I left the house white and used a soft yellow to illuminate the windows. The "Joyeux Noel" sentiment is from SSS last year. I love having the French sentiment as I live in a bilingual area and many of my co-workers are francophone. I am pleased with the result! I did add a touch of sparkle to my sentiment with a gel glitter pen.
