Believe - AHSC 294

Tis the season to believe and that is what this card is about, believing in the magic of the season.  For this one I used this weeks AHSC sketch but to make my circles fit, I had to flip my card on the side and go long way.  That is the great thing about sketches is that you can flip them around to make them work for you!

Paper:
- Tis the Season
- Fern and White Daisy card stock

Stamp:
- Z4046 Beary Christmas card making

Ink:
- New England Ivy, Cranberry (retired), and Saffron

I created this layout as a copy cat of one I saw in a video that was done by CTMH for one of their training videos. I saw it in the background and just loved it, I saw the snowflakes and I knew this was the layout to introduce my workshop ladies to our texture paste with and it was a hit. This picture, I will be honest, is horrible and I apologize. I just could not get a good picture of it. The background paper is from Oh What Fun and is a Mint with white swirls. I added the snow flakes which I cut out from the CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to make a stencil and we added the texture paste. My workshop ladies, and I were all a bit intimidated by the texture paste and yet as we played with it, we found it oddly relaxing and everyone really enjoyed playing with it and really loved the affects it made. 

Products Used:

Paper:
- Oh What Fun
- White Daisy Card Stock

Embellishments:
- Clear Sparkles
- Ranger Opaque Matte Texture Paste
- Ranger Palette Knives
- Clear Shimmer Brush

Until next time, happy scrapping...
