Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. I hope you are all having a great weekend.
It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great theme challenge for us:
Considering we had 8 inches of snow last weekend (ignoring the fact that it is all melting!) it is an ideal theme for this week!
I really wanted to do something clean and simple - and sparkly! Just like freshly fallen snow. There really is something totally magical about that first fall of fresh snow. The world falls quiet and the snowflakes sparkle in the lamplight. It was magical for me as a child, and it is magical still!
So, I began with white card stock and some silver glimmer paper. I used a die that I purchased last year from Simon Says Stamp called Banded Tree. I die-cut the front panel with my rectangles stitched die and then ran that piece through my Big Shot again with the Banded Tree die. I mounted that on foam tape to a piece of silver glimmer paper and added the sentiment and a red star sequin.
Here's my card:
I wish I could have captured how pretty this is in real life. The white with the silver glimmer is so pretty!
