Misted Serene Snowflakes

Here is the first card from club on Sunday. It's a wow card, but not overly complex to do!

The card base is Brilliant Blue and was made using the Movers & Shapers Die for the Big Shot with the Scallop Oval from the Punch Windows movers set. The basic die cuts the card stock to basic card size (11 x 4-1/4 folds to 5-1/2 x 4-1/4) AND scores the card for the fold!! Too cool. And, you can move the shape anywhere on the card front you would like it to be! The Movers & Shapers die comes with a Curly Label mover, but we have two other sets available right now. In the IB&C is the Punch Windows set. Those 4 shapes are size just larger than 4 of our punches. Note on the card above. The scallop oval punched in the cardstock is just larger than the white layer inside the card that was punched with the Scallop Oval punch. The 2nd set of movers is in the Holiday Mini, Holiday Windows. Those are just available for a few more weeks, so get them ordered NOW!!!

OK, the rest of the card! First, we stamped a background with the smaller two snowflakes. Well, one is the trio of flakes. All over in Brilliant Blue on the Brilliant Blue base. Next we took the next to largest, flower like snowflake and stamped it all over using the Frost White Shimmer Paint as our "ink". Very pretty!! & another item in the Holiday Mini that you NEED to order NOW!!! Lastly, we sprayed the card with a shimmer spray made from mixing 91% rubbing alcohol with the Frost White Shimmer paint. Too cool! Please do this in a well ventilated area! and with scratch paper under your card. The alcohol dries very quickly and you have a very shimmery cardstock. Works with any color cardstock, and there are three colors of Shimmer Paint available!

White Satin ribbon is knotted around the card. The Thanks was stamped in Brilliant Blue on Brilliant Blue first. Then we used (well, most of us!!) the Stamp-a-Ma-jig to offset a second Thanks using the Frost White paint. That is punched with the Large Oval punch and layered on a Shimmery White Scallop Oval. Those are attached inside the card to show through the oval cut through the front.

Enjoy! Hope all your Holiday preparations are going well. Not so well here, the snow last week set me way back and I'm always running behind anyway! Hoping for warmer weather in the next few days!!!
