Open House Northern Flurry

Finally, the last card, and maybe my favorite, from Open House last weekend. This was the last one to come together, but I was VERY happy with the final result!!


Card base is Rich Razzleberry. Background is Shimmery White that I textured with the Northern Flurry embossing folder. We added Rhinestones to the center of about 4 snowflakes. A Rich Razzleberry Taffeta ribbon was tied around the Shimmery White near the left side. I moved the knot toward the top so I had room for the greeting element below. Around the knot I tied a piece of the Clear Tinsel Trim (Love it!!). If you haven't tried the Tinsel Trim yet, what are you waiting for?? They are too fun!! The Razzleberry Snowflakes were cut with the Northern Frost Big Shot die. The greeting was a little tricky, but gave everyone a chance to review how to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig! The Season's Greeting is a long saying stamp. So we first punched our Scallop Oval of Shimmery White. Usually I preach "stamp first" but not in this case! I suggest a bit of adhesive on the back of the scallop to stick to your work paper. Ink just the "Greetings" with the Razzleberry marker and place as desired, lower center, of the scallop oval. Clean the stamp very well and ink the "Season's". Again use the SAMJ to get perfect placement and stamp. Layer the stamped scalloped oval onto a Razzleberry oval cut with the Punch Window set. On the back of your oval, put several strips of Snail and attach to pieces of Tinsel in an X so that the edges stick out behind. Attach the snowflakes to the card base with Mini Glue Dots, then used dimensionals on the back of the oval to attach over the snowflakes. Trim Tinsel as desired.

Thanks for stopping by-I hope I've inspired you today!! Quiet weekend here, hoping to get some Blog Tour projects completed!!
