The Winter Solstice and the Tin of Tags

Happy Tuesday everyone. Can you believe it's almost Christmas? And tomorrow kicks off the official 1st day of winter, known as the Winter Solstice; which means tomorrow is the shortest day of the year in terms of sunlight; which means after tomorrow, we will begin to gain daylight rather than lose it! (insert happy face)

Today, I would like to share a card with you in honor of the Winter Solstice. It uses one of my favorite sets from the Holiday Catalog, Tin of Tags. I just love the versatility of this set. Although it was intended for making gift tags, is certainly steps out into the card making world very easily.
I started with a card base from Whisper White cut standard at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4", I then cut a piece of Marina Mist cardstock 5 1/4" x 4" and a piece of Whisper White 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"  I secured the piece of Whisper White to my desk with some old Washi and layed the circles mask from the Seasonal Decorative Masks over it also using Washi (both the stamp set and the masks are currently on the End of Year Closeout!!) Then, using a clean sponge dauber, I applied the retired Dazzling Details glitter glue over the mask (any clear glitter glue will work for this) this created a "snowy" look. I tried to capture the beauty in the photos but just couldn't ...this is the best I could do. I removed the mask and allowed the glue to dry. Once dry, I stamped the snowflake and sentiment, both from the Tin of Tags stamp set, in Marina Mist ink. I then layered it onto the Marina Mist cardstock piece and finally layered it onto the card base using Fast Fuse.
I hope you enjoyed my Winter Solstice card. Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. In the meantime, I wish you all a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
Katrina
