Snowflake Card

I absolutely love snowflakes, so here is my card!



I cut the card out of blue glitter paper with my Beyond Birthdays Cart at 9x8in using my gypsy. The rectangles were all cut from the Don Juan cart at various sizes.



I embossed the white paper with a stamp and silver embossing powder to make the background paper. Then I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the dark blue paper with my snowflake embossing folder. I used silver ink to add dimension and bring out the pattern on the darker paper. I distressed the ruffled rectangle with blue ink to bring it out, and added a stamp to the center box. I added blue glitter glue and two snowflakes to bring everything together!
