Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a fantastic and fun weekend. I did a whole bunch of cleaning and a few other household chores, but also managed to get a whole lot of crafting done too!
Today I'm here with a card for the newest Paper Girl's Challenge - use snowflakes on your project. We never had snow this year. Often we get at least one day of it somewhere in January or February and while some flurry did fall during those months once or twice, it never stuck around more than a few seconds. Since I didn't have any good photos for snowflakes, I decided to make a simple and pretty card that could be used for a whole bunch of winter occasions, holidays, etc.
I used my silhouette to cut out this snowflake ornament. I adore how delicate and pretty the snowflakes are. Then I misted it in the aqua Color Shine (Tropicana). Once dry I backed it with a piece of cream colored paper so it would be solid against the stamped background of the card.
The background was made using the Studio Calico and Hero Arts Lattice background stamp that I inked with the Brushed Pewter Distress Stain and stamped. It has just a touch of shimmer and is so pretty. I stamped a few small snowflakes randomly around the background using blue chalk ink.
After adhering the ornament, I covered it with Glossy Accents. It is a ton of Glossy Accents, but I like the look it gives the ornament. Once dry, two buttons and two dots of Liquid Pearls and the card was done.
I didn't put a sentiment on it, because I didn't want to cover up any of the background and none felt right on top of the ornament, so I left the card blank for now and can stamp a sentiment inside once I go to send it to someone.
So head on over to the PGCB today and check out the challenge and link us up to your snowflake projects!
I'll be back tomorrow with the Practical Scrappers Ten Things goodies!
