Dashing through the snow ....

.... Hello! Good morning! I'm rather excited today. My festive ornament card won challenge #200 at Merry Monday and, as a result, I'm Guest Designer for this week's challenge at Merry Monday - MM#202. Kathy's challenge is to create a snowy card, and this is what I made:

Stamps: Uniko - Big & Bold Snow, Stunning Snowflakes
Inks: Memento - Grey Flannel; Stampin' Up! - Pool Party
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU DP - Winter Frost; SU/Sizzix EF - Northern Flurry; Sequins


The inspiration photo is fab and I so nearly went with a soft neutral look, but instead I decided to play with shades of aqua and white and snowflakes. I cut a panel of snowflake design paper for the mat layer. I stamped the sentiment on white card, stamped some small snowflakes and then embossed the large snowflakes. I finished the front by adding a sprinkle of sequins in white and aqua. On the inside I cut another mat layer of the snowflake design paper and on the white panel I added some more snowflakes along with a greeting.

I love making Christmas cards and try to play along with Merry Monday as often as possible. I'd like to thank Bonnie for inviting me to join them this week - do play along - it's always good to get your Christmas cards made ahead of time!
