Merry Monday Sparkling Snowflake

It's Merry Monday time again.

Lesley is taking the month of July off, but the challenge goes on.  She has challenged us to use any of the past sketches and create at least 4 cards this month.

  1. Link up one per week OR MORE IF YOU WOULD LIKE!
  2. The linky will close on Sunday, July 29th at Noon.
  3. At the end of the month, I will choose 4 winners who will be Guest Designers at a future date.
This is the sketch I chose.

The snowflake is a sneak peek of a new Bigz Die from the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog.  Oh, you won't believe all the beautiful items in this catalog!

I cut the snowflakes from Silver Glimmer Paper and adhered them together with Crystal Effects. And what do you think of the new Delicate Designs Embossing folder?  It looks like a row of snowflakes to me.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! 

Card Recipe 
Stamps:  More Merry Messages
Ink:  Encore Silver (retired)
Paper:  Whisper White, Brushed Silver, Silver Glimmer
Other:  Silver EP, Big Shot, Snow Flurry Bigz Die, Square Lattice EF, Delicate Designs EF

This is quick and easy and fairly flat.  I think it will mail well.

Come join us at Merry Monday  and get a head start on your Christmas cards.

Be sure to look at the cards the rest of the Design Team has come up with.  They are all fantastic.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Bonnie, I love the sneak peaks. The snowflake on the glimmer paper is just so pretty against the new EF.

Bonnie this is gorgeous! I love that snowflake (I wonder if we'll get it in Australia??? - hope so!) and the embossing folder you've used on the main panel is so effective. Just love this one!

Whoa! That snowflake stopped me in my tracks. I'm looking through all your posts, to see what I've missed. This big glittery baby really called out to me!

I've been lousy about commenting lately...I have either a really bad case of bronchitis or something worse...been lying down, mostly.

Wow Bonnie, this is stunning. The silver and white are so elegant and I love your snowflake.
