Christmas Card Club–Festive Flurry


IMG_7374
Happy Sunday morning!  The sun is shining here in Lincolnshire and I really hope it is for all the people hit by the terrible storms bringing them a tiny bit of brightness.  I just hope the sunshine continues.  Let's hope so.  Thoughts are with you all. 
Our Christmas Card Club challenge this fortnight has been set by Hazel She asked for snowflakes or all white on our cards.  I've gone for the snowflakes and mostly white using my Festive Flurry stamp set and the small snowflake from Snow Day.  I used circle framelits and my 2.5 inch circle punch to make 'holes' in my top layer and then stamped through them to add the large snowflakes which are heat embossed with silver.  The remaining mini snowflake were stamped and heat embossed with whisper white and a rhinestone added as a central feature.  Candy dots are fast becoming one of my favourite embellishments and I've added those to the centre of the large snowflakes.  Mini 'fork' bows, yes I tied them using a plastic fork, just add a little more discreet sparkle.  The whole card is made using Shimmery White card stock which adds an extra shimmer, although difficult to photograph well. 

If you like the Festive Flurry stamp set it's still available along with some of the other Stampin' Up! stamp sets from our winter catalogue on a carryover list. Contact me for details.

  8. This is lovely Zoe - I like how you have stamped the snowflakes within the circle apertures. They look wonderful. I absolutely love snow and am really fed up because we have only had about 6 flakes and a quick flurry here. I do understand why my friend Christine isn't a fan - there's a lot of digging themselves out where she lives!

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
