It’s Friday that means it’s Friends with Flair time at the Unity Blog.  I thought I share a card I made during the last VSN. This one was for Lori’s Glitter Window Challenge. I stamped the cute snow man family image from the Stamp of the week club Just Chillin’ stamp set  in  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was colored with Copic Markers (YG01, YG03, YG17, R05, R27, R39, BG70, Bg72, BG75, C00, C1, C3, BG0000, BG10) and cut and embossed with one of the Resplendent Rectangles Nestabilities die.

After cutting a frame out of Kraft cardstock with the same and the next size up Resplendent Rectangle dies, I realized that the regular glitter window technique wouldn’t work so well for these shapes. So instead I ran the image layer face down through my Xyron machine and rubbed loose glitter all over.  The frame and the image layer were adhered on another piece of Solar White cardstock and cut down to the size of the Kraft cardstock layer.

The card base was created out of a 9 1/2″ x 6″ piece of white cardstock, folded in half with the edges rounded.  the card front was covered with My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland paper patterned paper. White organdy Ribbon was tied around the layers and the bow was topped with a button tied on with embroidery thread.

The image was adhered over the card front with foam adhesive squares. The sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock, cut out and adhered to the lower right of the image. The lower part of the sentiment panel was colored with Copic Marker BG10 and topped with Stardust Stickles.

White cardstock was cut and embossed with two small Create a Flake 4 Spellbinders dies. They were adhered together with more foam adhesive square. A rhinestone was added to the center of the flake. It was then covered with Glossy Accents and Vintage Glass Glitter Shards were sprinkled over it. The snowflake was adhered to the top left of the image to finish off the card.

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