Cascading Snowflakes


The cue card for the CASology week #22 challenge is "Sparkle." I used snowflakes from several SU! sets done in shades of green and red, adding those little geo sparklers to the centers for some added interest. The sentiment is from SU! Contempo Christmas.


Here's another one I made having the snowflakes cascading from the top which looks more natural to me. This one is done in shades of blue & purple, with more geo sparklers added to the centers. If you click the photos, that sparkly detail will probably show up a little better.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by. It's always great to see you :)

Carol, beautiful CAS card. You do such wonderful work with a CAS card, I need some lessons from you, I'm spending way too much money on postage this year to send my cards.

Loving both your CASlicious cards, Carol. I kind of think I like the red design better, only because it's unexpected, you know? You've spaced them out beautifully in both cards. Into my faves folder they go!

Love snowflakes and LOVE these cards! I think the red and green one shows the last few flakes in the snowfall, while the blue and purple is the beginning / middle of a snowfall... {smile}.

Carol, I never thought anything of the snowflakes on the bottom, but I guess you are right that they seem more natural coming from the top. Top or Bottom they look terrific as far as I'm concerned. Those little geo gems really show up nice when we click on the pictures. Have a good night.

These cardboard so cute. I love the colours you have used. I think the secondary is my favorite but the colours in the first are just too cute. Hugs Sam
