Yesterday I had some free time to play along some of my favorite challenges. I created this card for the current Way to Use it challenge on Splitcoaststampers (favorites), the current CASE Study and Simon Says Stamp challenge (snowflakes).

The current CASE study showcases a gorgeous card from Windy Robinson. Her card had some great dry embossing with Nestabilities dies. Her card had flowers in the center, but I thought snowflakes would be more appropriate for December. Plus I LOVE snowflakes. So I cut snowflakes out of Neenah Solar White cardstock, Frosted Teal and Patina Bazzill cardstock with dies from the 2012 Snowflake Pendant Shapeabilities® die set.

A 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock was folded in half and the bottom corners were rounded.  Two of the Wonky Rectangles Nestabilities® were embossed in the center of the card. A sentiment from Merry Everything was stamped in the center of the embossed rectangles with Midnight Black VersaMagic Ink.

Red silk ribbon was tied around the lower part of the card base. Thin silver wire was wrapped around a stylus and added to the small white snowflakes. The bigger blue snowflake and a while one were adhered to the left hand side of the sentiment. A second white snowflake was adhered over the ribbon bow.  Rhinestones from Want2Scrap finish off the card.

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