Let it Snow with Authentique

Sharing another chilly project with you today. Just seems appropriate on a frosty morning such as this. Although I should be thinking of fall and Thanksgiving right now, all this cold has me skipping ahead to the next season and winter….perfect time for a bit of Authentique’s new winter collection, Glistening.

AudreyPettit-Glistening-Let it Snow CardI’ve been crushing big time on gray this past year, so this collection has stolen my heart. For today’s card, I pulled out a variety of gray tones from the 6×6 papers and Enhancements Cut Apart paper to create an icy monochromatic look. I absolutely adore the mix of hues, from deep, dark gray to silver gray to light gray to crisp, bright white. Adds a lot of interest, even in a design lacking in a lot of color.

But for me………I think I’ll stay bundled up inside with my fleecies and coffee!

Thanks for stopping by, my friends. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

  2. I’m loving the Glistening collection! I have a hankering to make some Paper poinsettias and this may be the perfect paper for the job! I really like the monochromatic design it adds so much to the vintage image. This card is full of timeless holiday style!

  3. Ah yes, you’ve done wonders with this combo. I love the Glistening papers.And the cute image is perfect fun. I’ve been thinking of redoing my kitchen in grays and white, but it’s a secret so far. Enjoy the weekend, to warm a bit here and our winds finally went away so that helps a lot.

  4. You make wintery projects look so easy. I have a hard time with “White/gray” Beautifully done, and I am over the chill I tell ya! 🙂 I am such a whimp!

  5. This frosty card would melt in a heart beat here. We have the doors open. LOL I love all the great depth you created on this card Audrey. The monochromatic tones work really well for the winter theme. Lovely! Hugs!
