Frosted- CCMC-HM5

This week over at the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition we have been creating using the Angelic Joy, Rejoicing in Christmas, Fireside Christmas and Northern Hearts (hostess) stamp sets and for the Saturday Challenge this week the theme is All the Glitters!

I decided to use the Northern Hearts stamp sets and focus on the snowflakes in the set, because snowflakes are always glittlery! Here is what I came up with, Frosted. I do not use glitter very often, but had fun making my card fit the theme All that Glitters!

I started by stamping all three different snowflakes from the set onto Whisper White card stock using Versa Mark ink and then embossed them using a mixture of half Clear Embossing powder and half Dazzling diamonds. In real life this gives the snowflakes a real glittery look.

The bird and the leaves were punched out using the Two Step Extra Large Bird punch. Then I covered them in Multipurpose TomBow Adhesive and sprinkled the Silver Glass Glitter over them. (The TomBow Adhesive works GREAT to make the Glass Glitter stick to anything!)

The sentiment, from the Curly Cute stamp set, was stamped onto Whisper White card stock and then mounted onto Vellum card stock and given a little dimension using the bone folder.

I added a little White Satin Ribbon to finish the card off!
