Hello all. No I don't want it to snow anymore but by the time I use this card, I'll be looking forward to it again. Today's card is for two challenges: Merry Monday Challenge #101 and Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #129.
I'm not a big fan of square cards because I don't like to pay the extra postage. For that reason when I make a square card, I cut it 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" and score at 4-1/2". This will fit in the A2 size envelope perfectly. Shimmery White card stock was used as the base. On a piece of Real Red card stock, I heat embossed the snowflake from the Best of Snow stamp set using VersaMark and White embossing powder mixed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Tough to see
in the photo but the snowflakes have a subtle sparkle. This was attached to a piece of Winter Frost designer paper. A strip of the white card stock was attached and over that a piece of Smoky Slate ribbon. The layer was added to the card. I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set with VersaMark and Smoky Slate embossing powder on Shimmery White card stock. I don't have the Label Bracket punch so I just punched it out with a circle punch. It was matted with another circle of Real Red card stock. I blinged up a scallop circle with a glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds, attached the sentiment to it and used Dimensionals to add it to the card. For the finishing touch, I scattered some Rhinestones around the snowflakes and added one on the sentiment. I probably should be making Easter cards but I couldn't resist the colors in the challenge. Thank you for coming by. Enjoy the weekend.
