Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge – Icicle

One more card for today….I was inspired by the inspiration photo for the current Curtain Call Challenge – Icicle and the long-lasting snow we have outside our door.


I was inspired by the blues and silvers and tree branch in the inspiration photo and made the following card.  I ended up with 2 photos of it since the background shows up so much better in the 2nd photo but the trees shimmer more like they do in real life in the first photo.  Love the sparkly embossing powder!  I sponged the background to get the ombre look and then misted it with perfect pearls to get some texture in the sky.  Also made a more complicated banner with double stacking it. Happy crafting!  Supplies are listed below.




  • Cardstock: Enchanted Evening (Papertrey); Blueberry Sky (Papertrey); White (Georgia Pacific)
  • Ink: Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, Stormy Sky, Broken China, Tumbled Glass distress inks (Ranger); Versamark
  • Stamps: Through the Trees (Papertrey Ink); In the Meadow (Papertrey)
  • Accessories: Double-Ended Banner die (Papertrey); Mister (Ranger); Tinsel embossing powder (Sparkle n Sprinkle); Silver embossing powder (Ranger); perfect pearls (Ranger)
