Here is that long awaited card from Snowflake Serenade, a beautiful set from PaperTreyInk. It's a fantastic set, and the 3 snowflakes are gorgeous. This card just uses the small and medium size snowflakes. I hope you can see how pretty they are. The background piece is Blue Bayou cardstock, and the snowflakes are stamped in versemark, then embossed with clear detail embossing powder. The White panel is Soft Sky ink snowflakes stamped on Stampin Up Whisper White, then matted on top of a soft sky panel which is pierced with the paper piercer matt pack. The sentiment "Wishing you Joy" is actually 2 different stamps but put together at the same time on my acrylic block. I don't have any blue bayou ink yet, so I used Buckaroo Blue, one of last year's "In Colors" and it looks just fine. For the finishing touches, I traced the JOY word with the sakura stardust pen, stamped another snowflake on soft sky and punched it out with the 1 3/8 circle, and highlighted that circle with more stardust pen, and some fine lace stickles, added some ribbon and silver cord, and then added a tag that says "Happy Holidays", which I traced with the sakura glaze pen. This card took DAYS, way longer than most cards I do, because I just couldn't quite get the layout that I was happy with. Thanks for looking! It's almost time for Grey's Anatomy, so it's time to snuggle up on the couch and turn off the phones! :) Yeah.... tomorrow's Friday, although I have such a busy weekend ahead, it really won't seem like Friday until my day off on MONDAY.
