Snow

I made this card for Sharon's Friday challenge which was to make a flat card. Do you know how hard that is for me? My snowflake really needed to be popped up, but I played by the rules of the game with this card. I do have a little knot in the ribbon, but so does Sharon so I think I am ok.

I started with a 5.5x11 white card stock, used my score it to make my folding line and ended up with a 5.5x5.5 card which fits nicely in a 6 inch square envelope. I adhered the snowman paper to it. I stamped the images with Not Quite Navy from SU, cut out the pine cones with my Spellbinders rectangles die, and bordered both with a bubbled vinyl that for some reason reminded me of a snowy day.

I used my Snowflake punch from Spellbinders and also shadowed it with the same vinyl for dimension. I felt my ribbon needed something under it, so I cut a piece of the polka dotted paper. It is hard to see on here, but does have blue dots on it.

Oh, I am so bad, I still haven't got my card finished. I've got everything painted and need to put the finishing touches on it. I love your card, so beautiful and full of holiday spirit!

Wow, this is gorgeous!! Even though it's flat, it has a ton of eye appeal!! (I agree, this is harder than it looks, LOL!)
