I hope all of you have mailed your Christmas cards and have your shopping done. As for me all my cards are done. I’m just in the process of addressing. I hope to get these in the mail by Wednesday. Finally the weather here has turned cold. It’s not so motivating to get Christmas activities completed when it’s warm outside. Now it feels like Christmas. Although it doesn’t normally snow here in San Antonio I can still wish for a white Christmas or at least on my Christmas cards. So here at my craft table there are snowflakes in San Antonio. This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a snowflake theme challenge. Create any project with snowflakes. You’re welcome to use any brand products. I look forward to seeing your projects. So hop on over to HSS and take the challenge.
I’ve been wanting to use the Shimmery White paper from SU and my snowflake die and this challenge was perfect. I love the elegance of the Shimmery White paper. So beautiful! I hope you can see how the paper shimmers in my card below. This card was very easy to create. I embossed the front of my card with the Northern Flurry embossing folder and used SU Dazzling Diamonds on the embossed and the die cut snowflakes. I also embellished them with the self-adhesive Basic Pearls. These are the perfect embellishment for your Christmas cards. I adhered the die cut snowflake with Dimensionals and added a Very Vanilla satin bow. The embellishment is from the Snow Swirled stamp set and is embossed in silver. I hope your inspired to create your snowflake project. See you at HSS.
