Let it Snow

I'm entering this card into the Merry Monday challenge  'Let it Snow', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Use a Sentiment', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra 'Anything Goes as Long as it's Christmas' and the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Stash Challenge 'Metal Embellishments'.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Let it Snow (magazine freebie)
Embossing: Snowflakes embossing folder (magazine freebie), Stampendous clear embossing powder
Ink: Versafine Majestic Blue
Card: White silk and blue mirri
Other: Silver brad

I embossed the snowflakes onto white card, layered it onto blue mirri before attaching it to the card front.  I stamped and embossed the Let it Snow stamp onto white card and trimmed around the image.  I attached a silver brad to the centre of the snowflake before layering it onto blue mirri and attaching it to the card with foam tape.
