Sending You a Flurry Snowflake Christmas Card

by Joanne James1. October 2015 08:05

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary and this week we have a great sketch challenge for you:


The minute I saw this sketch I knew exactly what I was going to do with it - snowflakes were definitely the order of the day! Here's my card:


To create my card, I used a base of Pool Party with a central vertical panel of silver foil. For my central panel I used a sheet of shimmery white cardstock. This cardstock is just beautiful and you can't really see it in the photograph, but this card has such a beautiful shimmer and shine to it. On it I stamped one of the splatters from Gorgeous Grunge,then I stamped both my sentiment from the 'Flurry of Wishes' stamp set and the tiny snowflakes from 'Wonderland' in Versamark and heat embossed them in silver. I wrapped my card with silver cording trim then added a few sequins along with a trio of snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes set, also heat embossed in silver on Shimmery White cardstock and watercoloured in Pool Party with my Aquapainter and punched out with my Snow Flurry punch - one of the great seasonal bundles available in the catalogue at a saving of 15% when compared to the individual item prices. My card has quite a 'Frozen' feel to it I think - I love the icy blue, shimmery white and silver colour combination.

Do visit the other Design Team members to see how they used this week's challenge sketch; there's lots of inspiration over on their blogs too! The lovely Chris Slogar also has inspiration using this very set; I made my card and when I went to upload it to our challenge site, I could see Chris had uploaded hers too using the same set. A lack of time to make another card and the fact that Chris's card is different to mine led me to leave mine as it was - so you get double the snowflake inspiration this week! What can I say - great minds clearly think alike!

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!
