SUOC60 – Snowflakes

This time on SUO Challenges we were challenged to use lots of GLITTER!  Easy enough (and no mess!) to use Stampin' Up!'s Glimmer Papers.  I love the rich colors of Real Red, Silver and Champagne!  Again, I let the Big Shot do all the work to make this simple, but WOW card!



Here are the details:

  1. I cut the Crumb Cake to 4 1/4 x 11 and folded in half to make the base card.
  2. I ran the front thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder to emboss.
  3. I cut the snowflakes from the Snow Flurry Die and Silver, Champagne and Real Red Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the small one over top the medium sized one with Glue Dots, then adhered them to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. I cut the tag from Apothecary Accents and Whisper White, then embossed Season's Greetings from More Merry Messages with Gold Embossing Powder on it.  It is also popped up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals!


That's it!  Really, it took more time to run the Glimmer Paper thru the Big Shot than it did to make this entire card!  But…it does have lots of SPARKLE!


Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team over on SUO Challenges!  There are some fantastic ideas!  Then come play along!

Connie – this is stunning!  I laughed when I saw yours in the gallery.  I guess glitter = sparkly snowflakes (we really must have been on the same sheet of music this week)!!  Love how you used the three papers for these!

The snowflakes in all three of the Glimmer Paper colors are just gorgeous!  Wish I had thought of that 🙂
