For my card today I used Crissy’s darling new Snow Fairy Princess. It was stamped inTuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the smallest Spellbinders™ Grand Circles Nestabilities®. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Dress: BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18, N0, N1, N3     Wings: BG10, BG11, BV0000, BV000     Skin: E97, E99, E09, E18    Skin: E50, E21, E34), masked and sponged first with London Fog, then a bit with Toffee Crunch Memento inks.

The edges of the circle were inked with VersaMark ink, sprinkled with Sticky Embossing Powder, heated and Martha Stewart Sterling Glitter was added over it. Little dots were added with a white gel pen.  Subtle sparkle was added with a clear spica pen, more sparkle was added to the wings with Frost Smooch Glitz.

A sentiment from the new Snowflake Mini Letter Seals was stamped in Turquoise Gem VersaMagic Ink on white cardstock and embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder and cut and embossed with a Standard Circle die. It was adhered to the image layer with foam adhesive squares.

The card base was created as a Twisted Easel card, cut and embossed out of Neenah Solar White cardstock with the smallest of the Grand Decorative Circle Nestabilities dies. A piece of Whimsy Winter Blues Patterned Paper was cut with the smallest Grand Circle Nestabilities die,  the edges were sanded and adhered to the inside of the card.

Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with the three smallest Create-a-Flake Four Shapeabilities® dies. The snowflake pieces were covered with the Emboss It Dabber. Sticky embossing powder was added, heated and the snowflakes were covered with Sterling Glitter.  They were stacked together with foam adhesive squares and topped with a Queen & Co Twinkle Goosebumps.  The sparkly snowflake was adhered to the bottom of the inside of the card. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl was adhered to the snowflake. Rhinestones from a Sleek Strip Silver Rhinestone were added to the card front to finish off the card.
