Snow day! Well, not really. We did have our first "ground covering" snowfall last night though! So I'm sitting in my sunny kitchen, looking outside at beautiful snow, and sipping a cup of tea! My sweet pooch, Bella the Whippet, is basking in the sun.
I thought this would be a perfect time to share the snowflake card we made at Monday's Big Shot class with teh Festive Flurries stamp set and matching framelits!
You can see the Dazzling Diamonds glitter better in this shot. I absolutely adore the Frosted Finishes Embellishments! They are simply gorgeous and are so easy to stick on with a glue dot!
Here is the back side of the ornament. We stamped the "Be Very Merry" in Smoky Slate right over the Soft Sky snowflake.
We used Silver 1/8" Ribbon for the "hanger" – we sandwiched it between the snowflakes and the foil circle using Sticky Strip. The ornament was then attached to the card with a dot of dried Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I used an old backing paper from the labels that come with the stamp sets and just squeezed out some dollops of glue. Let them dry overnight. After they dry they are still VERY sticky!! In retrospect, I should have used Silver Glimmer paper instead of the Silver Foil. The Silver Foil on the back of the ornament was where we stuck it on to the card – but it did pick up some marking from that. If we had used the Glimmer Paper it would not have shown up.
The background on the card was made with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder and we put a dimensional between each snowflake layer. A big thank you to Syliva Shires for the inspiration for this card! You can see her version here.
Thanks for stopping by today! It looks like the snow is melting so no shoveling for me – woo hoo!
