Sparkle and Shine

Hi and welcome to our first Merry Monday challenge of 2015!  This week, our challenge hostess is Kathy and she is challenging us to use a snowflake on our card.




And here's my card:



I started with a Sea Glass card top-folding card base.  I then took a piece of white cardstock and die cut the Eliza snowflake and carefully removed it from the panel.  After silver-embossing the sentiment, I then put lots of foam tape on the back and adhered it to the card base.  The center die-cut bits were carefully put back into the snowflake using tiny little bits of foam tape.  Some Simon Says Stamp sequins finished off the card.



Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have some beautiful cards for you to check out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Winter Wonderland (Mama Elephant)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Seaglass (SSS), white
Accessories:  Eliza die (SSS), Snowdrift Sequins (SSS), Silver EP

Cheers
Karren
