Merry Monday #274 - SNOW

Hello friends.  This week's challenge at Merry Monday is brought to us by Nina and she would like to see SNOW on your Christmas cards!


Isn't that such a pretty and peaceful inspiration photo?!  Here's what I came up with:


I started by embossing a piece of white cs with an older Darice ef, and then blended it with Salty Ocean, Broken China, and Faded Jeans distress ink.  I added a simple die cut from AliExpress and embossed my sentiment from PTI's Snowfall Style in silver on the bottom of the die cut piece.



I added a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (SU!) to the center of the embossed snowflakes...looks really sparkly IRL!!  Added this layer to a white card base to finish off my CAS card.

And because I had a snippet of the background left, and didn't want to throw it away, I have a twofer for you.

I used MFT's Peek-A-Boo Window die to frame my little snippet, and then added the same sentiment as the card above, and also added a die cut snowflake in silver mirror cardstock from PTI's Silver White Winter's.

Another CAS card for my Christmas stash!!  :0)  I think Loll Thompson is rubbing off on me!!  :0)

Check out all the beautiful inspiration from the DT and then play along with us!  You can find all the info right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
