Let It Snow

Hello everyone,

Just a warning, I'm on a bit of a Christmas card roll.  I've started working on Christmas cards for the charity sale at the office in the Fall.

The printed paper is atd Snow Day, layered on Stampin' Up Blue Bayou and shimmery white.  The Blue Bayou layer was textured with a Cuttlebug Winter Wonderland embossing folder and highlighted with LuminArte Stargazer Twinkling H2Os.  The snowflakes, cut with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Create-A-Flake Three and a Martha Stewart snowflake punch, are watercolour paper painted with a variety of blue LuminArte Twinkling H2Os.  The sentiment is Close To My Heart Christmas Scripts, stamped in Nick Bantock Prussian Blue on shimmery white.  The embellishments are Kaisercraft pearls and Doodlebug Boy Assortment mini pearls.

I've always favoured blue Christmas cards and these various snowflakes are ones I particularly love.  Painting with Twinkling H2Os add that little bit of shimmer which always puts these cards over the top.  Of course, you can never go wrong adding some pearls though sparkles would work just as well.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
