I wasn't sure I'd be able to get a card done for this month's Papertrey Ink blog hop, but I managed to do it despite dinner planning, shopping, and house cleaning in preparation for Thanksgiving company this week. Woot woot!
The theme was snow, so I pulled out my Damask Snowflakes dies and a few other wintry-themed things. I glued a piece of blue snowy paper to a white card base for my background. I die cut a snowflake from silver glitter paper and centered it over a double-ended banner that was embossed with phrases from Rustic Snowflakes and Snowfall. I embossed a snowflake medallion from 2008 Holiday Tags Collection and punched it out with a 1-3/4" circle punch, centering it on the large snowflake. As a final touch, I added a small rhinestone in the middle.
I love how it turned out! Unfortunately, the sun was down when I got the card done, so you get an indoor picture. I'll get a better one tomorrow. Hopefully you can still see all the pretty shimmer. Go here to see other projects in the blog hop. I adore snowflake images, so this was a fun theme for me. :)
