Wish Card Concept

Hi friends! It's time for a new challenge at The Card Concept.  I had lots of things swirling through my head when I looked at the inspiration photo, but the thing I kept coming back to was the wish banner and the pine garland above the fireplace.  So I set out to recreate it in card form with the Pinecone Christmas set, a few dies and some new snow paste I picked up at Michaels and was excited to test out.

I started by cutting the WISH letters from sticky fun foam using the Vintage Market alphabet die from Tim Holtz. Next I coated them with the snow paste.  I then cut four of the small pennants from the Stitched Pennants Die Set in early espresso and lightly scraped a bit of the leftover paste onto them.

I set the banner pieces aside to dry and stamped the pine branches, boughs and pine cones from the Pinecone Christmas stamp set.  I then scraped on a bunch more of the snow paste (can you tell I was loving the snow paste?) all over the panel to make a snowy scene.

Back to the banner, I layered the die cut letters over the pennants and then folded them over a piece of baker's twine that I wrapped around the panel.  I also tied a bow with two lengths of twine and hot glued to the piece.  I finished off with a wooden snowflake coated with texture paste and sprinkled with glitter.  A winter wonderland for sure!

Beautiful and this snow paste, which is something new to me, really adds a special texture to the card. ⛄
