Colorful Seasons Snowflakes

Hello! Well yesterday's snow was a whole lot more than we were expecting!!! What started out as a storm what was only going to produce 1 - 3 inches of snow turned into about 7 or so!! That is way too much snow for me for early November! It sure looked pretty but was a nightmare for anyone on the road.

Well to start off the winter season early, haha!, I have some snowy, wintery cards to share. I actually made these a while ago but haven't gotten around to sharing now. But now seems like the perfect time!

To start these cards, using Night of Navy and Balmy Blue ink, I made a water color background on Shimmery card stock. I did use a tiny bit of blue Brusho as well for some of the darker areas. Once I was happy with the background, I die cut snowflakes (from the Seasonal Layers thinlits). Those snowflakes were used on the second card.

Behind the snowflake cut outs, I added Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper for more sparkle! I used the Merry Christmas to All bundle for the sentiment. Then added Gray Granite ribbon, Polka Dot tulle ribbon and Iridescent sequins. Isn't this so pretty?!

For the second card, I embossed the white card stock with the subtle embossing folder and layered that on to Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. (the glimmer paper is sticking out from the edges in case you can't see it in the photos). The sentiment is from the Sincerely Santa stamp set and it was stamped in Night of Navy ink on Vellum. I layered this oval cut out onto Balmy Blue card stock that was cut with the Stitched Labels framelits.

After I glued everything together I added some white sequins from the Basic Adhesive-Backed sequins and a Silver Baker's twine bow.

So what do you think? Which one is your favorite??

Stay warm and have a great weekend!

  1. Wow, nice designed seasonal card. I think I will add this design for my marriage card. The most gracious cards offering a marriage invite that’s filled with fantasies and shrouded in elegance. The cards are unique and one-of-their-kinds and can project the mood of the event quite perfectly. I think that to suggest this design for my wedding card which I have ordered from Lavender Paperie.
