Let It Snow

I saw a wonderful card on the Lawnscaping Challenges blog this week and had to try it!  It is an entry in the White on White challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!  I have a ton of Lawn Fawn stamps but of course I didn't have the ones used for the sample card.  I wasn't going to let that stop me from making the card though!  You can see the inspiration card by Yainea here.  You will have to scroll down a bit to find the inspiration card but there are some other great entries to this challenge for you to enjoy, too!  Here is my version of the card.  

I really like how the acetate shaker part is like looking into a snowstorm!  I took a trip to Micheals and Hobby Lobby and found a good assortment to make the snow more interesting.  I used chunky glitter, mica flakes, white and silver sequins, silver star sequins and pearl micro beads (they've been in my stash forever)!  Here's a close-up of the shaker part...

Here is another close up picture taken at an angle.  You can really see the micro beads in this one.  They help to move everything else around and tend to keep static cling in check.  Putting the letters on top of the acetate causes a shadow of the letters on top of the "snow" inside the window!  Love this effect!

I had a hard time photographing this card to show how sparkly it is...but this shot came out better.  Pretty!!!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: Cougar Opaque 80 lb., Red and green scraps
Dies:  My Favorite Things: Stitched Rectangle Stax, Little Lowercase Letters; 
          Impression Obsession: Holly Leaf Cluster
Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss
Miscellaneous: clear chunky glitter, clear mica flakes, silver and white sequins, silver star sequins, pearl micro beads, acetate, foam tape

Thanks so much again to Yainea for the inspiration!  And thanks to you for visiting, please come again!

  1. Really gorgeous Janet! It's my kind of card, sparkly and with lots of glitter. The combination of all the mica flakes, sequins and beads etc must look wonderful in the flesh. I envy the person getting this. Debra x
