Razzleberry Snow

I just fell in love with Rich Razzleberry from the first moment I saw it! I LOVE it! Same thing happened with this set out of the Holiday Mini Catalog, Serene Snowflakes. Here's a peek at one card where I put the two together! It would really be pretty simple to mass produce for your holiday cards and the Frost White Shimmer Paint adds a bit of a "wow" factor!

Steps to Creating this Card:

1. Cut Rich Razzleberry CS at 4-1/4 x 11. Score at 5-1/2" and fold. Stamp 3 smaller snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes randomly on the base in Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink.
2. Cut a 3-3/4" Very Vanilla square and ink up the largest snowflake with Rich Razzleberry Ink. Use the thumping technique with a Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to get a little variation of color throughout the image. (Note: Thumping is just what it sounds like, use the brush end of the marker to thump right onto the rubber.) Sit the stamp face up on your surface and use a sponge dauber, regular sponge wedge, or paint brush to apply Frost White Shimmer Paint directly on top of the Razzleberry ink. Breathe on your image to re-wet it before stamping it in the center of the Vanilla CS. Sponge the edges with Razzleberry and the shimmer paint.
3. Cut a piece of Basic Black CS at 4-3/4" x 3-1/4". Center the Vanilla image panel in the upper part of the black and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals. Tie the Black/Vanilla Wide Striped Grosgrain around the panel, under the image.
4. Stamp the sentiment from Warm Words on a Very Vanilla CS scrap, punch out with the Modern Label punch and adhere below the ribbon. Adhere the black panel to the card base.

Love this! Rich Razzleberry is
a great "non-traditional" color for the holidays.
