Whimsical Wednesdays "Add Texture" Challenge




Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Whimsical Wednesdays! This time the challenge is to "ADD TEXTURE" to your project. This challenge will only be open until Friday December 2 at 12 noon EST, not the normal 2 weeks. Why, you may ask...because we are going to be having a SNEAK PEEK BLOG HOP of the new STAMPS!!!! Stephanie of Whimsical Designs has her own line of stamps coming out and we will be showing sneak peaks of them on Thurs. Dec. 1 and Friday Dec. 2  at 7 AM EST and then a Reveal party hop on Friday night at 7 PM EST. One randow winner of this weeks challenge will recieve all 4 of the new stamp sets! The winner will be announced during the blog hop on Friday night. I just LOVE these stamps and I know you all will to! They are SO CUTE! I can't WAIT for you to see the cute projects I have made with them! So mark your calendars for Thur. Dec. 1st and Friday Dec. 2nd!

For my project, I created this card. I printed and cut the snowman and bunny from Snow Friends using my Imagine. I pop dotted the second layer to the hat and like how the sweater texture looked. The tree I made by cutting a simple tall triangle out of cardstock. I then punched A TON of snowflakes with a punch and folded them in half. I then started gluing them to the triangle in layers starting from the bottom and working my way up. I just LOVE how it turned out. It looks like real branches and the texture it created is amazing. I embossed the background with the Cuttelbug Snowflakes folder and the snow with Poka Dots. I inked white over the snowflakes and wrapped twine around the top of the card. The sentiment is a sticker that I mounted to white cardstock and added a twine bow to the corner.
I hope you all liked my card and don't forget to go check out what the rest of the amazing DT has created! I can't wait to see what textures you will create! Have a great day!
