Festive Flurry CCMC273

I love the Festive Flurry "Bundle" in the Holiday Catalog consisting of the gorgeous stamps and matching Framelit dies which cut them out in a snap, and oh-so-easy!  When I saw this sketch for our Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge, I knew immediately what I wanted to do.



The base card is Whisper White but it is totally covered with a Designer Paper print.  The top layer is Coastal Cabana cardstock;  I flipped the sketch and used the snowflake framelit just larger than the one I used for my snowflake, diecutting the snowflake on the right instead of the left side.  


At this point I dry embossed the layer with the Northern Flurry embossing folder then used a Sponge Dauber and my Illuminate ink refill to add some pearly sheen to the embossed areas.  After adhering the Coastal Cabana layer with Dimensionals, I added two strips of the Silver 1/8" Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog across the card.


I diecut Silver Glimmer Paper with the smallest Festive Flurry Framelit as well as a snowflake I stamped with Bermuda Bay and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  The top layer is another stamped and heat embossed snowflake center that I cut from a third snowflake, and topped with a Rhinestone.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes punched with the Word Window Punch.  A few more Rhinestones scattered around finish the card!

Here's our Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge this week; this is a simple and versatile design that would lend itself to so many occasions!

The sketch looks just as good in your mirror image. I love all your added touches (embossing, the Illuminate refill, glimmer paper and rhinestones). Very festive!

Gorgeous! I love that you used the snowflake die cut instead of a circle, brilliant!

This is beautiful Margaret. I thought of this set as soon as I saw the sketch, but I knew I couldn't trump your card so I didn't try! ;)
