It's snowing outside! I can't believe it! I always get so excited for the first snow ... more excited than my daughter even! It's so beautiful with the pristine, white snow covering everything. Once traffic begins troppling it down that will change, but right now as I type this and look out my window, the world is a beautiful place! I knew that I wanted to use Taylor VanBruggen's Sketch challenge for my card today, so of course, with fresh snow on the ground, I NEEDED to do a snowflake card! I began with a base of Real Red, cut 5 x 10" and folded in half for a 5" square card. I added a strip of Baja Breeze cardstock to the bottom of the card, layered with Chocolate Chip and added a strip of Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon across that, tying in a bow. The sentiment, from Many Merry Messages, is stamped with Chocolate Chip Ink. The center square is a 3" piece of Chocolate Chip and four squares of Ski Slope Designer Series Paper, punched with the 1 3/8" Square Punch (easy, so easy). The center red circle is punched with the new 1 3/4" Circle Punch and the glittered up Felt Flurry is attached with a Square Red Rhinestone Brad. The felt snowflake was glittered with 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The circle was attached to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Well, gotta get ready for church! We're Hanging the Greens today and I'm actually thinking about putting up our tree this afternoon (after we build a snowman, of course!). I'm so excited!
