Dynamic Winter Glitter

I was working on my Merry Monday card, that you'll see tomorrow, and it seemed that all the ideas that had been floating around in my mind didn't work.  One of the ideas was a border of this Memory Box snowflake out of Glimmer Paper.  I couldn't get it to work, so I set it among the piles of stuff I'd dragged out aside.  When I finished my Merry  Monday card, I saw that the discarded snow border would work for some other challenges.  This is what I came up with.


Challenges:

Freshly Made Sketches #62  with this lovely CAS sketch by Jen M.





Glamour and Glitz

Add Glitter

The glitter was already on the paper.  Does that count?  I can tell you with certainty that I added glitter to my craft room.  LOL, it's everywhere!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  All Holidays (retired)
Ink:  Midnight Muse
Paper:  Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Glimmer Paper
Other:  Ornament Punch, Snow EF (Cuttlebug), Snowflake Border Die (MB), Snowflake Punch (non SU)

This card probably has too many layers for Chrissie, but I'm going to take it over there anyway.  It says CAS to me and it definitely has some glamour and glitz.

I'm so glad you stopped by. 

Enjoy!

Very pretty and glittery!

I love the silver glitter in combination with the dark blue. It looks elegant and I believe dark blue gives the glitter "more glance".

I think iz is going to have to get some of that beautiful glimmer paper!! Just love it with the navy. Graet use of the sketch and colours and the EF is perfect for falling snow :)

Beautiful card, Bonnie! I'm REALLY loving that embossing folder too.

I'm trying to play catch up here but all the T Day crowds are gone and I'll be back on schedule soon.

So your craft room is glittering now, huh? LOL I love your beautiful card. The ornament is a favorite of mine. The little snowflake border piece is a nice way to finish the card.

Another brilliant make Bonnie, and I never throw anything crafty away especially if I think I can use it in the future someway! I just talked about this on my post yesterday. I kept a glammed and glitzed die-cut Christmas tree for a year. Ha!

Your card is gorgeous!
