Snowflakes falling ....

...  well, they're not falling yet!  But, according to the weatherman, we might get a few by late this afternoon.  However, at the moment we have blue skies and sunshine - so much nicer than yesterday.  I have a Christmas card to share with you this morning:

Snowflakes Falling - Photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko Studio - Stunning Snowflakes, Peace on Earth
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Bermuda Bay
Dies: Die-namics - Fishtail Flags Layers Stax #2; Uniko Studio - Snowflakes; Spellbinders - Rectangles Sm (S4-130) #5
Accessories:  White Lustre Card; SU Card - Real Red, Bermuda Bay




I have seen so many wonderful cards made using Beverley's latest stamps and in these colours from Dynamic Duos - DD#77  too.  I was struggling to come up with something a bit different, and then I saw the new Deconstructed Sketch - DS126, from Jen Shults.  This card came together so quickly after that!!  I cut strips of card in turquoise and red and adhered them directly to the card base.  I cut a rectangle and stamped the snowflakes in Versamark, heat embossed with clear powder and, while still in the die, sponged on some colour to reveal the snowflakes.  I die cut a couple of the smallest snowflakes and inlaid the star in red.  I cut a flag and stamped this super sentiment in red.  The inside is simply a mat of turquoise card, with a snowflake and sentiment on the white panel.  As this card has embossing on it, I'm also submitting it to this week's CAS-ual Fridays - CFC119 challenge.    I'm really pleased with this card.

Before I go off and do some house stuff, I realise that I have welcomed some new followers - so pleased you joined me.  Say hello and welcome to Tracey and Jane.  And that's all for now - see you soon.

This card makes me so glad I ordered that set! I love the look of that retro snowflakd and the way you've 'extra' sponged around them gives so much depth! Great take on these colours!
