Shimmery Suede Snowflakes



I love playing with new things – you can see from my blog layout and header that it is true! I’m still playing around with layout and such but hopefully we’ll get it all squared away soon. Remember, change is good….change is good…..

Anyhow, this card utilizes a great new product, Shimmer Paint (in this case, Champagne Mist). It is a new product in our Holiday Mini catalogue and I LOVE IT!

The card colours and layout are quite simple. I just used Whisper White and Soft Suede. Truth be told, if I had more Shimmery White cardstock in my arsenol, I’d have used that for extra shimmer.

The snowflakes are stamped using the shimmer paint and then I layered cut out snowflakes on top with vellum. I used the great little sizzlet, Merry Details, for this. I found while doing this that the snowflake from Best Wishes and More coordinates with this snowflake really well. I used vintage brads to hold the vellum snowflakes down.

I tied on some organza ribbon and used the Merry Embosslit for the tag. I used the word “christmas” from the Merry Christmas stamp from All Holidays and stamped it using my Soft Suede marker.

Thanks for stopping by!
