Snow Day

It is time for a new challenge at Creative Card Crew and the theme this time is "Snow Day". The card above is my contribution. I had such fun making this one!

All the snowflakes were made using Spellbinder dies and then decorated in different ways:
  • Silver embossing
  • Shabby white embossing enamel from Stampendous!
  • Silver crushed glass glitter from Stampendous!
  • Blue distress ink rubbed on using a foam applicator on white cardstock
  • Blue glimmer mist
I used the white embossing enamel on small snowflakes on the background as well. There is gold glitter in the enamel. I love this stuff! I believe it is a pretty new product.

The border on top was punched using a Martha Steward snow flake border punch.

The rosette was made using a Tim Holtz die and silver Stickles was added.

Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium collection contains the blue paper that was used in the background.

The big blue flower and the white twirly straw were bought in the Magnolia store in Sweden. Yes, you read right! I visited the original Magnolia store in Sweden this December. And yes, I bought MANY stamps. My mother and I felt we were in paradise! :-)

Anyways, I hope you head over to the challenge blog and submit your snow day card. Simon Says Stamp is our sponsor so you could win a gift card!
