Let It Snow.....

Wish it would snow  -  it would be a change from all this rain! It's hardly stopped for days now and is really making me feel miserable! At least snow makes everything look bright - rain is just GREY!
Yet another CAS card to share - made a couple of these too - one in black and one in blue - 
(design inspired by Pinterest!)

The circles were cut out of the left over pieces of card using a die for the larger ones and a punch for the smallest. (So Playground again for me!)
Heat embossed sentiment and different snowflake stamps in Winter White embossing powder and then simply ran a white ink pad round the edges of both cirlces and base card.
The sentiment was a free one with a magazine.

A single sparkly gem for one of the flakes - cos a girl has to have a bit of bling - even if these cards were made for male relatives!!
Aren't these photos rubbish??? Tried taking a few recently and there seems to be a lot of 'bleed' on the images at the bottom of each pic. Some are worse than others - OH thinks the antique camera may be on it's last legs... perhaps Santa will bring me a new one for Christmas!

Yes i agree, its dark and nasty and cold, better to be white and cold. Love your cards my friend.

Then we could play snow angels !!

Also fed up with the rain but Mr K's charismatic smile does brighten the days and hope he gets them suitably energised tomorrow evening.

Nearly forgot your card Viv, clean crisp and elegant, monochromatic always pleases.

Two lovely cards and like the different idea to show up the snowflakes, nice snowflakes as well.
Same here weather wise but I'd like the snow to wait till I have finished my Christmas shopping.

Fabulous cards Viv! I do so love the white snowflakes and sentiment against the dark background - very striking indeed. Afraid it's grey down here too - not nice weather at all :(

Beautiful card Viv, love the white on black and the embossing. Super effective.

Pat said...

What a great idea to stamp the snowflakes on to die cut circles and then mount them on the card for a completely different look Viv and also to highlight just one of the snowflakes with a gem. Love the sentiment too. x

Pia S said...

These are beautiful, Viv, I really like how you arranged the circles with snowflakes on the cards for an elegant and clean look.

So you could say your black and blue all over!
I like the blue one the most. The embossing looks great.
Someone is throwing buckets of water at our front door along with a bucket full of nails.Well that's what it sound like. Horrible weather. hugs Mrs A.

Viv said...
