"Here Comes Suzie Snowflake" Card

This card fits right in with the Friday Mashup Challenge (FM#28).  The challenge is to create a project featuring snowflakes or create an Easel Card.... or both!  I created a card featuring snowflakes.

I picked up my issue of Paper & Crafts Holiday Cards & More special edition last Friday.   I spent the weekend looking at all the inspiring cards - more than once!  I have SEVERAL post its tabbed all through this issue of the cards that inspire me.  Hopefully I'll get to try each one I've marked putting my CTMH spin on it.

This card was inspired by the "Miss You Snow Much" card by Trinh Arrieta.  (Page 59)
I had been cutting Snowflakes for an upcoming card workshop.  When I saw this card I realized I already had the snowflakes cut out!


I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut the snowflakes.  I pulled out the snowflakes leaving the 'opposite' for my card.  I used Snowflakes (D1480) stamp and silver embossing for the border and "Winter Wonderland".   My final touches are the sparkles in the center of the snowflake and a dot of Silver Glitz Glitter Gel (Z1482) around the snowflakes.
