More Snow! - Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes

   Just when you thought we were clear of Christmas cards I show up and just have to talk about snow!  Living in central Virginia is a bit of a rollercoaster when it comes to weather.  It can be rainy, snowy and then sunny and in the 60s all in the space of one day!  Last year we didn't have any snow and so far this year we've had flurries and then 2 measurable events.  Our forecast looks like we will have more snow this week so I thought I should get in on the action with some snow on a card.  

  The Festive Friday Challenge is a really fun one with a great list of inspiration items of which you have to have at least 3 on your card.  I so badly wanted to do a polar bear card for Polar Bear day but alas that is one image I don't have in my collection...yet!  I went with blue, silver, snowflakes and vellum instead.

  A few of the elements on my card were leftover from the Christmas card frenzy and just never made it onto a card.  The stitched circle and large stamped off Pacific Point snowflake were already made and just needed to be paired up a few other elements for a pretty snow card!

  I started with a Balmy Blue base and then layered a piece of Snowflake Splendor DSP on top.  While I love the colors and pattern of this particular piece it was a bit bold for what I had in mind so I layered a piece of vellum over the top to tone it down a bit and fulfill one of the inspiration items.  The silver trimmed ribbon brings in a bit more sparkle to the center of the card.

  Using the stitched circle I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy and then layered my snowflakes on the sides.  Like I said I already had the larger snowflake cut and just pulled out some retired Silver Glimmer paper to cut a few more.  To tie in the Night of Navy ink I used a few Night of Navy candy dots for the snowflake centers.  The whole grouping is popped on dimensionals.

  It's nice to get a Christmas card made every now and again to slowly restock the cards for Christmas 2021.  And since this stamp set and die set are still available I want to make the most out of them while I still can!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
