Snowflake Pattern Card - Simon Says Stamp Card

Good morning! I just realized that the colors on this card are the exact same as yesterday, however, on this card they are a bit more subtle and muted! This one started out with some inspiration from a pillow in a recent catalog that I received - and I pulled out some Simon Says Stamp stamp sets to recreate the background - I was so excited with how the design worked on my card! 

Here is a look at my inspiration - just a quick photo I snapped on my phone - see the pillow?

I pulled out 3 different stamp sets to put this together - it actually stamped out very quickly, and I did it freehand with no stamp positioner! I used a cardbase created with Cream cardstock, then used the snowflakes from the new stamp set in the December Card Kit - Christmas Cheer. The dotted lines were from Kind Flowers. I used Schoolhouse Red Dye Ink to stamp my pattern.

I wanted it to have a slightly more rustic look - so I added some splatter with my Pinkfresh Licorice Liquid Watercolor. I used a small brush so I would get super fine splatters. While that dried, I stamped and heat embossed several sentiments from Tiny Words Christmas on thin strips of black cardstock. I adhered those to the cardfront at wonky angles with foam adhesive, and added a few sparkly clear Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish it off!
