Festive Flurry Goes Pink

I happen to like pink and gray together.  Mix in a little glimmer paper and a rhinestone and you've got the makings of a great card, even if I do say so myself.  You be the judge.


Stamp Sets:
  • Smokey Slate
  • Blushing Bride
Card Stock:
  • 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White card base - fold in half
  • 5 1/4 x 4 Whisper White for 1st layer - emboss with Polka Dots EF #117335 and mount with dimensionals to card base
  • 4 1/4 x 4" Whisper White for snowflake images
  • Scraps of Whisper White and Blushing Bride for sentiment and backer 
  • Scrap of Silver Glimmer paper for snowflake and star  
  • Big Shot, Large Oval and Extra Large Oval punches, Festive Flurry Framelits #132193, Basic Rhinestones, BoHo Blossoms Punch,Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Snail, 6/12" piece of Blushing Bride Chevron Ribbon and Dazzling Details glitter adhesive.

This is a very basic card starting with a Whisper White card base that has a single layer of Whisper White that was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  The 6 1/2" piece of Chevron Ribbon was adhered to the polka dot layer before the layer was added with dimensionals to the card base. Isn't the snowflake beautiful?  To achieve this look,  I stamped the medium sized snowflake in both Smokey Slate and Blushing Bride and the smaller snowflake in Smokey Slate.  The snowflakes including the smaller one on Silver Glimmer Paper were cut out using the Festive Flurry Framelits that co-ordinate with the stamp set of the same name. You can purchase these as a bundle and save 15% off the original price.  The snowflakes were stacked together with dimensionals and then mounted over top of the ribbon.  The small silver star was punched out of Silver Glimmer Paper with the BoHo Blossoms Punch and a medium sized Basic Rhinestone Jewel was mounted in the center. 

I stamped the sentiment from Winter Memories on the inside of the card.  This stamp set was one of my all time favourites from last year's Holiday Catalogue and even though it's retired I still want to use it.  I simply stamped the image in Smokey Slate on the inside of the card base and as an after thought, I added Dazzling Details on the laces of the skates.  You can't see how pretty that looks because I did it after this picture was taken, but trust me it added a subtle sparkle that worked.  

The sentiment from Petite Pairs was stamped in Smokey Slate on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and then punched out with the large oval punch.  I mounted 4 small Basic Rhinestone Jewels below the sentiment for a little extra bling.  The sentiment piece was mounted on an oval of Blushing Bride card stock with dimensionals.  To get that perfect layered look I punched the Blushing Bride piece out using the Extra Large Oval Punch.  Ta Da  all done!
