Let it Snow!

Some of you may not have the same wish for snow that I currently have but we've had very little moisture this winter and we are in desperate need of snow.  With that thought in mind and the current  snow, sleet, rain challenge at Jingle Belles I couldn't resist making a card about snow. To create the card base, I took a 12 x 12 sheet of white cardstock and scored it at 4" and 8". Then I accordion folded it and tore a portion off starting at the back top edge and tearing towards the bottom front edge (diagonally).  I used a computer to print the sentiment. Then I used a blue colored pencil to add some dimension and interest around the edges. I punched three large snowflakes and a bunch of smaller snowflakes. I layered the three large snowflakes and covered all the snowflakes with clear iridescent embossing powder.

Supplies:
White Cardstock: Paper Recollections
Colored pencil: Crayola
MS Word Font: Bradley
Snowflake punches: Emagination, EK Success
Embossing Powder: Darcie's Country Folk Clear Iridescent
Adhesive: Scotch ATG, Scotch Quick Dry, Scrapbook Adhesives Foam Tape

  2. What a fun fold ... love all of those wonderful snowflakes (honestly I've been missing the snow this winter too ... just doesn't seem right not to have a snow-covered yard in February) ... so very glad you joined us at jingle belles.

  3. while i have NO WISH for "real snow" AT ALL... i could happily enjoy one or two of these GORGEOUS card-based snow storms every single week, all winter long, and that's for sure! as usual, you have sat down and really THOUGHT about snow, about your supplies and tools, and about the prompt... and then created from scratch the perfect use of all of the above! and it's ♥GORGEOUS♥ too!!! love this, missus, you've outdone yourself, which is saying something!!! ♥
