Papertrey has a lot of wonderful snowflake stamp sets and dies, but my FAVORITE has always been Fancy Flakes! I cut a medium size flake out of plain white and then two smaller ones using a piece of blended (Dusty Concord, Salty Ocean, & Peacock Feathers Distress Inks) cardstock, and also die cut the JOY from Bold Borders: Flurries and the frame from Cover Plate: Pretty Frame Die with the blended piece of cardstock. These colors blended together really made my die cuts stand out and showcase what wonderful dies they are...is it any wonder that all 3 of these dies are FAVORITES?!!
I was trying so hard to get a photograph that showed all the shimmer and sparkle from the Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz I used on the blended pieces, but I gave up after about 50 photos! So anyway, try to imagine as it really is beautiful IRL!! I added a few Rainstones and some white bakers twine to finish off my card.
You have until next Wednesday at 6:00AM (27th) to play along, so check out Laurie's FABULOUS colorful and bright card for inspiration and then play along right HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
This is gorgeous, Marcia! Love your choice of colours and die cuts. Just mentioning The Christmas Kickstart Challenge is 'Hearts' until Tuesday. :)) Have a happy weekend, Jo x
Absolute gorgeous...it make my heart feel good.
What great dies to use for Laurie’s challenge, Marcia! I didn’t even think of the snowflakes. You have done a marvalous job of ink blending to glitz everything up! Love your creation! :)
I see why these are among your favorite dies, Marcia! You've die cut from a beautiful piece. Love these colors!
Now those are the kind of snowflakes I can handle! This is pretty Marcia!

Marcia my dear girl...we must be thinking the same thing...Christmas cards! I absolutely love that JOY die cut and I love what you have done with it. I am certain that I can detect a wee bit of sparkle on one of the snowflakes! Just a really beautiful card. Well done you!
