Snowflake Ribbon with Inka Smoosh


It's really hard to get a decent picture of sparkle and shine!
This is the best I could do.

I found this piece of Inka Gold Smoosh in my background basket
and die cut this gorgeous snowflake ribbon and the sentiment
from some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

The center of the snowflake is punched from a snippet of silver Glimmer paper
with a punch from my stash.

Flat for mailing which is a bonus!

Poppystamps January Challenge
I think this snowflake is silent. It's been sitting on my desk for a few days 
and I haven't heard anything.

And since the Inka Gold requires water to smoosh, I'm sharing this in the gallery at
Challenge closes on the 24th.



Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Such a pretty and dramatic background. Do so love the white snowflake die and the white sentiment. Silent the snowflake might be but what a star x

Oh Bonnie this is stunning - I must go and play with my inka's and try smooshing them... thanks for the inspiration
Blessings
Maxine\p.s. so glad the snowflake did not try talking to you - it could have been rather un-nerving :-)

I love the smooshing, Bonnie. I have a similar one waiting in my box that I did with Brushos and plastic wrap. I'll find a place for it someday.

Lovely shades of blue and green for the background - a good strong contrast for the snowflake ribbon. With the glimmer paper and the inka gold, it must be wonderfully sparkly!

Susanne Vargas said...

Your background is stunning, Bonnie! And paired with the beautiful, sparkly snowflake makes for a fabulous card!

Beautiful Inka Gold smooshed background for your pretty glittery snowflake swoosh. I love your idea to punch a snowflake center out of the glittery paper for easy mailing. TFS Bonnie. Hugs...

WOW!! What an amazing background piece you created Bonnie! Just stunning, and that pretty sparkling snowflake just pops against it!! LOVE it! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Hazel xx

Nancy Stislow said...

What a beautiful background, Bonnie. I tried the Inka gold but mine was dried up even though it seems I just replaced it! Love the placement of the panel on the card. What a great way to use a background that is not quite wide enough. Gorgeous die too!

MaryH said...

Breathtaking background to display this glimmering (and silent!) snowflake. So very elegant, but the richness & depth of the background color swirls set the pretty snowflake off to perfection. TFS & Hugs (hope you're not floating away with the rains)

Princess Judy Palmer said...

That background has so much depth! I'm sure its shimmery-ness is quite breathtaking in person.

Christine Alexander said...

what an amazing colour you created with the inka gold, just love the blue and the gold giving a beautiful green hue. It really makes the snowflake pop.

Strikingly beautiful, Bonnie! I'm trying for nearly all flat Christmas cards this year, so think I need to make some beautiful backgrounds to start with--love this!
