Let it Snow

I made this card for the current Merry Monday 'Plaid' challenge following the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I'm also entering the ABC Christmas Challenge 'A for Anything Goes' as well as popping over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop with my snippets.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white matt
Stamp: Let it Snow (magazine freebie)
Ink: Versafine Imperial Purple
Other: Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle Pearl Diamond, Wink of Stella
Snippets: Purple and white matt card, plaid paper

I trimmed the snippet of plaid paper and attached it to the left of the tent fold card blank.  The image was stamped onto white card before being trimmed, layered onto purple card and attached to the card front with foam tape.  I then outlined the words and snowflakes with a Wink of Stella.  I die-cut the snowflake from white card and sprayed it with Spray & Sparkle.   I then attached the snowflake to the card and added a gem to the centre.

I also have some New Year Blog Candy to give away.

Squeal!! Oh Kath - I used this sentiment stamp for the very first time the other day and I totally adore it. One of the best freebies ever I think. Combined with the plaid and the snowflake it's a real stunner of a card.
