Snow and Ice - CCM DT.

Weeks are going by and before we know it Christmas will be here!! I though am still sorting out my holiday clothes - not many sleeps left really - only a couple of weeks and I shall be lazing about in the sunshine again!
Before then though Josephine set us a wintry challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers of 'Christmas Snow and Ice'.
Am grateful really as this is the first Christmas Card of 2013..... whether it galvanizes me into making more instead of leaving it till last minute as usual remains to be seen!  
We are sponsored by DI'S DIGISTAMPS with a $10 GIFT VOUCHER this time.

I opted for a CAS design and got out my Snowflake dies and 'Diamond' Stickles.

The card is made with the same White Centura Pearl that I used on the wedding card and this was the left over! Matted onto a silver holographic card before being layered onto white base.

I used trusty swiss dots embossing folder for the top and a snowflake border folder for the bottom, covering the join with some shoestring white ribbon.

All the snowflakes have been cut from two different types of snowflake dies, layered and liberal helpings of stickles applied and each has a tiny sparkly in the centre.

The sentiment was a freebie and I printed it out onto vellum. I may add a few teeny sparklies to the sentiment at a later time!

Hope you can pop along and join us for our wintry challenge - please go to the blog and check out the rules and of course - all the fab projects done by the rest of the DT!
