Let It Snow

This is a 4 1/2"x6 1/4" card. I used red cardstock for the card base. I trimmed some patterned paper 1/8" smaller. The striped paper is 3"x4 3/8" and the green cardstock is 2 1/4"x4 3/8." I embossed the green cardstock with the D'vine Swirls embossing folder. I then added some limeade Martha Stewart glitter to the swirls. The snowflakes are from Winter Woodland, cut at 1 1/4" (for the white ones) using the real dial size feature. I covered them with diamond Stickles. I cut the pink snowflake from Winter Woodland as well. This one is cut at 1 1/2" and covered with bubble gum Martha Stewart glitter. I also used pop-dots to adhere it to the card for some more dimension.

I also finished the inside of the card. I cut some pink cardstock at 4 1/4"x6," then some green cardstock at 4"x5 3/4" and white cardstock at 3 3/4"x5 1/2." I used a Fiskars stamp for the sentiment and stamped it in pearlescent orchid ink by Tsukineko.


I made this for the following challenges:


  • The Friday Mashup: girly theme with your favorite technique (I love using embossing & glitter)

  • Cardabilities: sketch #43

  • 365 Cards: "Day 260" - add four things to your card (paper, glitter, white snowflakes, pink snowflake)
