Snowflakes with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

It is hard to believe that it is the last day of November today. Where has the time gone?

Today it is my turn on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog. I created a holiday card and matching tag using two snowflake sets-"Snowy Sayings" and "Bring on the Snowflakes."

The colors were inspired by the image below.

It was also LOOSELY based on last weeks "Freshly Made Sketches #314.

I started off by stamping and heat embossing the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Snowy Sayings" in silver.


I then stamped the small aqua snowflake from the same set and the large snowflake from "Bring on the Snowflakes."

Next I stamped and heat embossed the large silver snowflake. I die cut the white panel and wrapped some silver thread around the front. I used a lighter piece of a patterned paper scrap behind the panel and mounted the whole thing on an A2 sized, top folding, aqua card.

My last step was to adhere some matching sequins and light colored jewels on the snowflakes and randomly around the sentiment.

For the tag, I actually used the practice piece I made for my card. I did the exact same process as my card but then used the middle sized Fri-die from "Tag Buddies" to cut out the tag.

I added some silver thread and thin ribbon to the top to finish as the finishing touch.

I love using different colors for my Christmas cards and I hope that this inspires you to create some fun snow themed cards too. Use my code-nora2017 at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps to get 15% off your next purchase-including sale items!!
