I'm here with a little piece of winter that arrived here in Kansas last weekend! We literally had 60 degree weather on Saturday and then a BLIZZARD on Sunday. It was crazy!
Any way, I thought it would translate well into this card using the newest stand alone dies......Frosty Flakes from Hello Bluebird. To create my background, I started with a light blue cardstock panel. To this panel, I ink blended Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Inks. Over the top of this panel, I spritzed generously Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray: Sparkle from Imagine Crafts. If only I could capture all the sheer glitter on this panel in my photo! Trust me, you NEED this stuff! :)
To capture the essence of winter, I die cut lots of Frosty Flakes from white cardstock since my background was already full of shimmer. I arranged and adhered my flakes to the upper left side. For a sentiment, I wanted to add a few from Skating Together and Quiet Christmas. I arranged them with foam adhesive and added lots of sparkling clear sequins.
Thank you so much for sharing a part of your day with me!
