Hooray! It's time for another Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge! The theme for Challenge #4 is Winter, and I had tons of fun making this card.
I made it for a sweet friend of mine who I think of and miss every day. She is simple (in the best way!) and happy and always looking on the bright side of things, so I wanted my card to reflect that.
I absolutely love the snowflake in Concord & 9th's Joy stamp set, so I started my background by stamping that in two different colors. Next I added the sketchy star from O Christmas Tree, followed by the largest scribbled circle in Love you. Mean it. I filled in the gaps with the little berries from the Joy stamp set. I created the sentiment by embossing "happy birthday" from the Happy Day stamp set and creating "winter" with the Sophisticated Script. Honestly, if you haven't picked up Sophisticated Script yet, you need to. I use it all the time, and I love that I can create any word that I want and have it look amazing. It's really easy to line up, too, especially with a Misti, but you can get great results even without one.
Well, I'm off to get this card in the mail to my friend. :) Thanks so much for stopping by today. Make sure you pop over to the Where Creativity Meets C9 blog next. There are so many beautiful creations and the team did a really fantastic job showcasing the versatility of Concord & 9th products, using lots of non-holiday/winter themed products for this challenge. I look forward to seeing what you create for our Winter Challenge this month!
