Today I am sharing another card I created for a VSN challenge in the beginning of the month. This challenge was to add a snowflake into your design.

For my sample I cut and embossed a piece of Cryogen White cardstock with a Classic Square Nestabilities die, stamped it with a Snowflake from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Snowflake Silhouette in Spun Sugar Distress ink and stitched it to a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Postage Stamp Nestabilities die.

I cut and embossed more shimmery cardstock with dies from the retired Create a Flake one  Spellbinders die pack (you can still find Create a Flake 2 and the new Create a Flake 3 packs in stores), sponged the centers with New Sprout Memento ink,  and topped with Vintage Glass Glitter Shards. The layers were topped with a tiny button and tied together with wire before the snowflake was adhered to the pink snowflake layers.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Cryogen White cardstock, folded in half with the bottom corners rounded. A 1 3/4″ wide strip of My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found 2 Rosy paper was adhered to the lower half and May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied over it. The snowflake layers were adhered to the card base with dimensionals. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl and additional Rhinestones finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
