A Winter Card


On Sharon Johnson's Blog 'no time to stamp' the challenge this week was to make a winter card. I loved the idea, so I combined that challenge with this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com.
The image is retired Stampin Up! but I don't know the name of it because it was sent to me via Wish-RAK. The large snowflake is the Cuttlebug Die 'Ice Crystal'. I used the Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder for the second panel. The smaller snowflake is a Martha Stewart Punch. The sentiment is mounted up on dimensionals and the image is colored with copics. The white cardstock is a very shiny opal that I picked up at my Local Scrap-booking store. It has a very iridescent quality in real life. The other cardstock colors are Rose Red and Bashful Blue. I added stickles on all the snowflakes and the embossing folder.
I hope you enjoy your 'winter day'! Amy
