Happy Friday!! I hope your week has been wonderful! As we finish up November and enter December, I thought it would be nice to post a card that we made yesterday in my Christmas Wow Class.
I will start by saying that this is one of those cards that has more “wow” in person. Some cards are just like that, I guess. I was inspired by the amazing and talented Sandi McIver and this card she made last December. I changed the color to Very Vanilla and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. What is hard to see is that the snowflakes have sparkle on them. Lots of sparkle! After cutting them out from the Snow Flurry Die, they were spritzed with Shimmer Paint Spray created from rubbing alcohol (about 1.5 oz. of 70% store brand rubbing alcohol) and shimmer paint. You combine these in a spray bottle and just spritz it on the snowflakes (best to use a paper towel under them). They shimmer and shine in the light but, apparently, not for the camera. I did get a close-up, though, that is a little better (click on the photo):
The sentiment comes from More Merry Messages, a gorgeous and must-have word set for the holidays! I embossed with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder first and then cut the panel in 7/8″ strips (it started as 3-1/2″ wide). Basic Pearls are the perfect finishing touch for those pretty little snowflakes.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as my stampers did! Thanks so much for dropping by! Have a great weekend!
