A Single Snowflake

 

The snowflake is from the Seasonal Layers die set, and “Merry” is from The Merry Christmas die set. I cut both from Sparkle Glimmer Paper. You can’t truly appreciate the beauty of this paper without seeing it in person. If it catches the light just right (like a diamond), it sparkles with all the colors of the rainbow.

The card base is Gray Granite cardstock, and I embossed the card front with the Subtle Textured embossing folder. The pretty, patterned paper, which covers approximately two thirds of the card front, is from the Frosted Floral collection.

 

 

If you flip this week’s CAS(E) this sketch on its side, you can recognize my layout, and why I needed the Frosted Floral DSP to be sized this way.

 

 

I wanted to add “Christmas” to “Merry,” and found the word in the Merry Christmas To All stamp set.  I stamped “Christmas” in Basic Gray ink on Frosted Floral DSP, and cut  with a label die from the Merry Christmas die set. The label is triple layered, so it has dimension without using dimensionals.

TIP: I used the Stamparatus, because I wanted to stamp the word several times. The shimmery finish on the Frosted Floral DSP makes it more difficult for ink to adhere.

I added three, tiny pearls as the last detail.
