Let it Snow!

Today's card was a fun one to make and used minimal stamping, but lots of diecutting! I used the Tic Tac Toe Challenge grid for my inspiration (Using diagonal: Sequins -Die Cuts - Vellum) and I will also be entering it @ One Crazy Stamper for "Christmas/Winter", @ Happy Little Stamper for "Anything Goes with Dies", @ Pile It On for "Non-Traditional Holiday Colors" and @ International Art & Soul for "Make it Sparkle".

The dies I used are a set of three that were the free gift from one of my favorite UK crafting magazines. I just extended the cuts for each piece so that it would span the width of the A2 sized card front. Both the blue and the white layers have glitter in the cardstock so it is very pretty! I added a bit of soft yellow paper behind the open door and windows to mimic indoor lighting. Using foam tape to bump out the layers adds depth and dimension to the card front.

The inside is clean and simple using a Paper Pumpkin kit sentiment stamp from Stampin' Up in gray ink with some light snowflakes in the background.

The sentiment stamp on the front is also from Stampin' Up and is heat embossed on the swiss polka dotted patterned vellum using silver embossing powder. Sequins sparkle as softly falling snow and the silver sparkled bow adds the finishing touch.

Until next time~
