Silver Snowflakes

Today I'm playing along with the Blue Christmas challenge at AAA Cards, the sketch from Fusion and the color challenge at Colour Me.

I started out by silver-embossing the sentiment onto some vellum paper then cutting it with a banner die.  The snowflakes were die-cut with silver paper.  For the top of the card, I embossed with a SU embossing folder then die cut with a scallop die.  A white layer provided some contrast with the card base.  I put dots of glue under the rhinestones to adhere the vellum to the card base.  Some silver elastic cord finished the card.

Thanks for visiting.





Products used:

Stamps:  Peace on Earth (SSS)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Midnight Muse, Vellum, white
Accessories:  Delicate Designs EF, Large Scallop die (SU), Maryanne and Melody dies (SSS), silver elastic cord (SU), Banner die (SU), rhinestones

Cheers
Karren

Edited to Add:  This card got a shout out at Fusion.
