It may be hot as heck at here but I'm cooling down with snowflakes. Paper snowflakes anyway. Today's Christmas card is for the current Merry Monday (#114) challenge is to add some Sparkle, Shimmer or Shine.
Despite the sentiment my card is more shimmer than sparkle. I cut the patterned panel from the Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland pad and then added a small piece of silver metallic at the bottom. I attached it to the PTI Soft Stone card base with glue at the top third so it would hang softly. I cut the snowflake from some older Bazzill Basics cardstock using the Papertrey Ink Stitched Snowflake. The cardstock came from my scrapbooking days and has a subtle shimmer. I attached a swirl of silver thread to the panel and then laid the snowflake on top of it. I used the Mama Elephant Dainty Bow die set to create the bow from more of the silver metallic paper and then centered if over the snowflake. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Papertrey Ink In the Meadow set using Delicata SilveryShimmer ink and topped the bow with a single jewel.
