Whew! Okay, now onto today's card:

This simple card helped to use up some of my Christmas card supplies without being "Christmas-y".

  • Basic Black served as a good backdrop for my design. I used Iridescent Ice to heat emboss snowflakes in a pattern.
  • The cute image, from Animal Crackers, was first water colored before I added some Frost White Shimmer Paint using a paint brush to the ice and water. TIP: The Holiday Mini expired yesterday, but the shimmer paints are still available!
  • To create the layered snowflake, I first punched out the large one out of Brushed Silver and I used my Big Shot to create the small one using Bashful Blue. The center was created using a Sticky Page and the Flower Layers Originals Die. I simply attached the sticky page to Whisper White, ran it through the machine with the die and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds all over.
  • A large half pearl from the pretties kit was the finishing touch!

The flower behind the snowflake reminds me that spring does come after the winter. I know I shouldn't talk, the weather here is way too nice!
