Snowy Card

By With No Comments

Snowflakes-cardClose-upI love using blue for holiday cards.  This is Stampin' Up!'s Ballet Blue combined with Night of Navy and Shimmery White Cardstock.  I tried a close up of the white so maybe you can pick up the shimmer a bit?!  It's subtle…but it's there.

Serene Snowflakes stamped in Night of Navy & Ballet Blue (why think too hard, just coordinate the ink with the cardstock…LOL)

I punched snowflakes out of Night of Navy & Shimmery White.  The rhinestone gem in the centre of the snowflakes is the gem from a clear rhinestone brad.  To get the gem out, open the arms of the brad, then pry back one of the retaining arms.  I will often search through the brads to find one that the little arm is sticking out ever so slightly – much easier to pry open.  Pop out the gem & then adhere it with a little Tombow Mono Adhesive.  I love the clear rhinestone brads, but this just gives another look, and a little less bulk.
