Saturday Blog Hop – Favorite Color Blue

But, it’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is featuring “Our Favorite Blue Color” this week.  Although I’m certainly not wishing the summer away, I do LOVE Soft Sky and it naturally pairs with snowflakes.  While this card layout isn’t terribly creative (remember, I’m in the middle of a move!), I did use the pretty snowflakes in the Seasonal Layers Thinlets and one of the new embossing folders, Oh My Stars.  I felt they resembled snowflakes, too!

 

Here are the details on this card:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • The top half of the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Soft Sky was embossed with the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder.
  • At the bottom, the greeting from Flurry of Wishes was stamped with Memento Black Ink.
  • The snowflakes from Seasonal Layers Thinlets were cut from Whisper White cardstock, covered with Clear Wink of Stella, and added to the front of the card.
  • Rhinestone jewels were added to the centers.

That’s it!  Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!  LOVE those new snowflake thinlets!  OK…check out what the rest of the Design Team and their Favorite Blue cards over on Create with Connie and Mary!

Oh my goodness, your card is very creative! I never thought of using that embossing folder for snowflakes but it’s perfect. Thank you so much for the tutorial.
