Snowflakes. Squint and you might see some!

Let it Snow

Happy Sunday! If you're anything like me, today you're starting to let the panic start to set in that you've done hardly anything for the holidays yet....! Eeek!

Worrying aside, I'm here today to share that I'm playing along with those talented Curtain Call Challenge gals as a guest designer. Thanks so much to Stacey for asking me to share the stage today!

 So today's card was inspired by this piccy for today's Sweet Snowflakes Curtain Call Challenge:

Photo Credit:

I was taken by the blue and pink colour combo and decided upon blue snowflakes and pink, glossy hearts. The winter daylight is doing my photography no favours here so sit up close to that monitor, squint, and squint some more and you just might be able to see some snowflakes falling from that cloud. :)

OK. Stop squinting. Here's a close up, but it's not much better I'm afraid!

Let it snow (close up)
I think you're just going to have to trust me that you can really see these pretty snowflakes much better IRL!
tips and tricks
  • To add a bit of extra dimension, I've covered my hearts with Glossy Accents and smothered my cloud with my clear Wink of Stella pen.
  • To add Glossy Accents to tiny embellishments easily, I like to stick them to a tiny piece of blu-tack so they don't stick to the table!
  • The design looked lost on a larger piece of cardstock, so I've created it on a smaller piece and mounted it on an extra layer.
The challenge is sponsored by Uniko Studio so it seemed rude not to ink up my Uniko Studio Stunning Snowflakes stamp set for it. The LEAD of this challenge will win a gift certificate to spend at the Uniko Studio store too. :)

Be sure to see how the special guests and crew inked up Stunning Snowflakes too. I'm pretty sure you'll be able to see their snowflakes without risking square eyes! *wink*
