On a hot, sticky July day here is a little cool breeze of winter!
Lots of snowflakes and a "Merry Christmas"!
Lots of sparkley "icey" glitter, too!
(However, the red hot snowflakes DO seem appropriate for July, don't they?!)
The snowflakes are die cuts I bought as a set...sorry, I don't remember the brand.
The background cs is really a dark navy...I know it kinda looks like black.
The medallion stamp I used is a Clear Dollar Stamps, and I heat-embossed it with white and added a fine glitter while heating...and my experiment worked! The glitter actually fused into the embossing powder and came out very sparkley! I did the same thing on the sentiment, a Stampabilities stamp. The edge border is a Martha Stewart called "Doily Lace"; the die cut for the sentiment is Spellbinders "Labels 4". Some "Star Dust" Stickles and a few rhinestones...and we're all done!
Note the Stickles on the white border; they're hard to see in the photo but look great up close and carry through the "icey, sparkley" theme quite nicely. The white border is actually on the back page of the card.
