DT Post For The Outlawz Twisted Thursday: Triple Play

This week at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge our twist is Triple Play (use 3 colors). Of course it's always Anything Goes if you don't want to follow the twist, so why not join us?
Our sponsor this month is Ppinkdolls, and the digi stamp I'm using is called "Playing with the Snow" from the store on etsy. You can check out their store at:

I started my card by importing the digi stamp to my Silhouette Design Studio software and sizing it up and printing it out. I chose some lovely Graphic 45 paper called "Place in Time" and used the 3 colors blue, black and burgundy in that paper to color my image. I used Copic and MEXPY markers for everything but the skater's hair. I used a black color pencil for that so that I wouldn't obscure all the individual strands of hair seen in the digi.

This card took me several attempts to design. It's a good thing I had a lot of that Graphic 45 paper! I had a few ideas that didn't turn out the way I hoped, so I just kept trying different things until I arrived at this design. 

This card is 6X8 inches. I attached the front of the card to the back by adhering the top of the front to the top of the back piece with glue tape and using a score line for ease in opening the card. I used a Couture Craft and Create die to make the snowflake border on both sides of the card front. This was a problem spot for me. I had originally cut out some snowflake border strips using the outline die that goes with this border, but when I was trying to arrange them on the card, they didn't show up very well. There was just too much busyness when I had the card designed with the graphics on the front (great vintage ads and a postcard and some New Year sentiments and snowflakes). So I redesigned it with the graphics on the inside and the snowflake border cut from the card front itself instead of adhered on top of it. 

I used the W Plus 9 Sunshine Layers die set to cut the image and mat. I added some vintage metal photo corners and some pearls where the snowflake circles in the digi were drawn. Then I die cut some snowflakes with Spellbinders 2013 Snowflake Pendant dies and the smallest die in Spellbinders Floral Burst die set. I cut out the "Let it snow" tag from the same Graphic 45 cardstock I used for the card base and adhered it to a black tag to bring in a little more of the black that was more noticeable on the graphic side of the cardstock. 

Hope to see you over at The Outlawz this week!
