HCBC Week 1 Card 4 - Friends Warm The Heart

Day 3's inspiration is doing window cards. I do like the idea of window cards and I will most likely do a couple more cards this style.

2 awesome videos by Jennifer McGuire and Shari Carrol. My favorite was Jennifer's on faux letterpress technique. I've seen this technique before but I've not gotten to try it. I've bought the Hero Arts Shadow ink pad just to try this technique out. Besides being inspired by the video tutorials, I was also inspired by Vicky from Lily Pads. She is doing a "Spotlight on Lawn Fawn" this week.

Here is my card:

Here's a close up:

I didn't have a matching stamp set to go with the embossing so I just inked my embossing folder with Soft Pool ink and dry embossed. The 2 snowmen are layered in between the front panel and card front. The inside is stamped with Tiny Flakes background stamp in versamark and lightly brushed with perfect pearls to give it some shine.

Supplies Used:
Paper - PTI Aqua Mist, Stamper's Select White
Pattern Papers: 12 Days of Christmas by My Mind's Eye
Inks - JBS Spiced Tin, Speckled Egg, Lemon Drops, Archival Jet Black, Versamark, Hero Arts Shadow Ink Soft Pool
