Snowflake Sparkle

Hi and welcome!  The card I'm showing you today feels like version 3,263.  I had an idea in my head for the sketch at Pals Paper Arts and the tic-tac-toe challenge at Paper Players but it wasn't coming together how I imagined.  In the end, I had to adapt my plan, ditch the vellum and Irridescent Ice EP and start again.  I finally came up with this after an embarrassing amount of time and after checking out the Addicted to CAS challenge word which is Dots.  I'm hoping circles count as dots :)



I love white on white, so chose White, Snowflake and Glitter on the tic-tac-toe board.  I cut snowflakes using various SSS and Memory Box dies and adhered them to circles of silver glitter paper.  They were then popped up on foam tape onto a white card base.  

The sentiment was embossed with pewter EP and cut with a banner die.  It was also popped up on foam tape and bits of the snowflakes above and below were positioned over the top of the banner.
