Winter Wonderland stand up card

It's Winter Wonderland over at A Vintage Journey with this being the theme for the December challenge.

My sample for the challenge is one of my Tando stand up cards.

Di at Tando Creative has cut me boards to the exact size I wanted to make these cards using the white backed greyboard. The grey side was painted with a thin coat of gesso and when dry dipped into watery decoart dazzling metallics crystal green and ice blue paints and dried, then stamped with archival cornflower blue using a stampendous vintage text stamp. As always I distressed and inked the edges.

The snowflake background and snowflake have been created the same as a card I made in 2015 which can be found HERE. You can see I added some shabby seam binding ribbon to it before adhering it to the background.

The stand is soooo easy to make out of two pieces of card.

 I added the Lin Brown sentiment from PaperArtsy which fitted perfectly across the board and when all was assembled I splattered with some titanium white media acrylic paint.

I hope we'll see you enjoying entering your winter projects with us at AVJ and now I need to get myself in full Christmas mode with getting cards made and out, decorations up and some traditional sweet treats made for my kids and grandchildren.

Have a great weekend.
