SC232 Snow Door

I am finally starting to feel better!!! WOOHOO and thank the Lord for that!!!! So today I actually decided to play with this week's sketch challenge at SCS. I know most of you in the Northern Hemisphere are basking in lovely Spring or Summer weather, but I am freezing here - so I was inspired to make a card with snow!!!
I started with a base of white, layered with some blue bazzill and more white and topped with some of my favourite Little Yellow Bicycle DSP. The horizontal band is more blue bazzill punched with my new Fiskars Eyelet Lace Embossing Border Punch and tied with some wide white grosgrain. The main image is stamped using Our Daily Bread Designs, Ask, Seek, Knock. I stamped the door in Jet Black Stazon, coloured with blue and grey markers and added some Liquid Applique and heated it with my heat tool (lesson - put the applique on LAST because it squashes when you use your cutter!!!). For the square corners I've used the square dies from the 'Vintage' die set and cut it out of white cardstock. I've finished by adding part of the verse in black to the corner and some tiny 'snow' pearls by Kaisercraft to the other corners.
Stamps - ODBD Ask, Seek, Knock
Paper - White and blue bazzill, watercolor paper, Little Yellow Bicycle DSP
Ink - Black Stazon
Accessories - Liquid Applique, markers, blender pen, 'Vintage' die set, Fiskars Eyelet Lace Embossing punch, white grosgrain ribbon, Snow Kaisercraft pearls.
That's all for today, hope you're warmer than me and thanks for visiting!!! :)
