Let It Snow

Using The Paper Players #27 challenge, A Christmas Theme, and Friday Mashup #22, I created this card which is one of the cards we will be making in my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack this weekend.  I'll be sharing the others over the next week.

My card base is Marina Mist card stock.  I ran a piece of Bashful Blue card stock through the Big Shot using the Northern Flurry embossing folder. Frost White Shimmer Paint mist was spritzed on the embossed image.  I punched all four corners with the retired notched corner punch, laced retired silver elastic cord through the corners tying a bow in the bottom right corner and adhering it to the card front.  Using Marina Mist card stock and 
the Big Shot, I cut two snowflakes from the Snowflakes #2 sizzlits, inserted a Silver Brad in the center of each and attached them to the card front with Mini Glue Dots.  I hope my stampers enjoy this card.  See you soon.
