Well I've been taking a break from blogging this Christmas season, but that doesn't mean I wasn't still busy working on things. This is one of the cards I made when my dad came to me a week or so before Christmas and asked if I would make a card for my mom, and I said I'd be glad to. I actually didn't procrastinate too much on this one either...amazing! Since her favorite color is blue I decided to use a few different colors of blue and blend (sponge) them together using the emboss resist technique. I've already done a couple of cards with this technique lately, but really liked a card my stamping friend Christi made and wanted to add some "swirls" in with a darker blue like she did. I love how it turned out!
I'm also entering it into the Friday Mashup challenge #90. This week's theme is "Snowflakes" and/or colors Whisper White, Pool Party, Midnight Muse and Basic Black. Super close on the colors for making the card over a week ago!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
