Lawn Fawn- Stitched Snowflake Die

Today we're sharing a winter or Holiday card using the Stitched Snowflake Lawn Cuts from Lawn Fawn.  The card is super simple and incorporates one of our favorite techniques, watercolor.

To duplicate this sort of background, you'll need some watercolor or mixed media paper.  We used Tim Holtz Distress Inks selecting some blues and purples.  Once you've chosen your colors, apply the ink to a non-stick surface, spray liberally with water and then "smash" your paper into the ink.  I twist the paper from side to side, just a bit, before lifting it up from the ink.  Set it aside to dry, or use a heat tool to speed up the process.

Apply the die cut snowflake and stamp your sentiment.  Our sentiment came from a Mama Elephant stamp set, Merry Greetings.  We love the mix of fonts used for these sentiments.

We did add some Stardust Stickles to the snowflake, although it's hard to see in the above image.  We also added a small bow that we tied using the silver twine we have in our ribbon section.
