Snowflakes in April


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  My Christmas card this week uses three challenges!!  The first is from  52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown:


As well as Merry Monday's snowy theme:


And the beautiful color challenge from In{k}spire Me:

Because the colors are a little unusual for a snowy Christmas card, I went "light" on the snowflakes, using several different sets, stamping them in the challenge colors on a Whisper White base.  I added a sentiment from Paper Pumpkin in Blackberry Bliss, a retired metal frame from waaaaaaay back, some glimmer ribbon and linen thread:


The frame actually had eyelets on both sides, but I trimmed one end off to make it look more like a tag!  The sentiment is from Papertrey's Believe set, and you can't see it, but the letters are sparkly because I used Wink of Stella on them!


The white panel was simply mounted on a mat of Blackberry Bliss and adhered to a Sahara Sand card base!  Another for my stash!


Enjoy your day!

  8. Wow Leanne. Love this card. Wonderful in its simplicity, color and style. Fun snowflakes (cool idea to mix multiple sets), my favorite colors in combination and the tag idea really pops. Super idea on downsizing the metal. The blend of natural textures and glimmer elements appeals to me too. Thanks so much for sharing.

  9. Cutting off the extra eyelet to make the frame into a tag is pure genius!!! What an awesome way to get more mileage out of that SU hardware (yes, I recognize it because I still have some, too!). I love the dainty snowflakes in those colors, too. Thanks so much for sharing your awesome card with us at 52CCT! :)
