Season's Greetings



I've used snippets from a retired pack of SU! dsp to make this card. I began with a square of Island Indigo cardstock in the center, and just adhered strips of dsp and Pool Party cardstock around the edges until it was finished. I added some snowflakes done with silver mirror cardstock that were cut with Lawn Fawn stitched snowflake dies, cutting the largest one 3 times in 3 colors and swapping the negatives for a fun look. The Northwoods sentiment was heat-embossed with silver embossing powder.

I'm sharing this card into the following challenges:

The Snippets Playground #206 - must use snippets

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful week ahead.

Wonderful use of snippets here Carol! You really made such a fabulous background, I was convinced it was a designer paper - and the snowflakes are a beuatiful addition as well. Love it!

Love this beauty of a Christmas card Carol! Those snowflakes are so pretty but that background is sensational!!! It always amazes me when you do that technique - and yet, I still haven't tried it. Think I'd probably just make a mess of things though. Love this gorgeous card.
