Let it Snow!

Dashing through the snow is the challenge at Jingle Belles.  Since we haven't had much snow in the past few years where I live, my card is a wish for snow.  To begin I embossed snowflakes on white cardstock, punched the three snowmen from designer paper, matted them with dark blue cardstock and adhered them to the embossed background.  The card looked a little flat so I added the punched snowflakes using dimensional adhesives.  I wrote the sentiment with a marker and then inked around the outer edges of the banner as well as the white embossed cardstock.  The real challenge for me was taking a photo.  I have a hard time trying to take a decent photo with cards that have this much white.

Supplies Embossing plate: Fiskars snowflake, Snowflake punch: Emagination Crafts Inc., Square punch: EK Success whale, Marker: Impress Dual Marker ultramarine, 3D adhesive: EK Success 3D Dots, Other adhesive: Scotch Advanced Tape Glider, Pigment Ink: Studio G, Designer Paper: Oriental Trading Winter , /Dk blue cardstock (sorry, I don't know the source),
