Glittery Goodness

Hi, all!

Today I made a card that's a little "odd" - whoever heard of brown snowflakes, right? However, I love a good, rich brown against aqua, so I decided in Deborah World snow is brown. 

And glittery!

As usual when dealing with the sparklies of this world, the photo doesn't do them justice. But in person - man, this card glitters! 

As a bonus, this project is easy to make and requires very little time.

SUPPLIES:

Memory Box stamp B897, Memory Box PP: Crystalline, Moroccan in Vanilla Bean; card stock: cream, brown; Design Adhesives Flurries; foam snowflake; brown glitter; Copic marker E47; gems; generic ribbon; Making Memories tag frame; VersaFine ink; pop-dots

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Color foam snowflake with Copic marker and set aside to dry.
  2. Adhere brown card stock to face of card.
  3. Adhere 3.75" x 5" panel of Crystalline patterned paper to card.
  4. Layer  brown card stock to Moroccan Vanilla Bean patterned paper and wrap ribbon around panel, securing on the back. 
  5. Adhere layered panel to card.
  6. Stamp sentiment on cream card stock, punch out and secure in tag frame.
  7. Attach tag circle to card using pop-dots.
  8. Coat face of snowflake with glue and apply glitter - set aside to set and dry.
  9. Apply Design Adhesive snowflakes to card and apply glitter. (TIP: After I've liberally covered my shape with glitter, I cover it with the wax paper the shape just came off of and firmly press down to "pack" the glitter. This gives you better and more lasting glitter coverage, IMO.)
  10. After shaking off the excess glitter, adhere gems in center of each Design Adhesive snowflake with Diamond Glaze.
  11. Adhere snowflake to circle tag and adhere gem with Diamond Glaze.  

Have a great weekend!!!

Beautiful and elegant card! I love the colors. I know it looks simple but it would still take me a while to put it together! :) Thank you for sharing!
