Some Of My Best Friends Are Flakes



My second card today was created for the Virginia's View Challenge all about glitter, the Time Out Challenge to use a snowflake, and The Paper Players tic-tac-toe challenge. I started by added some cherry red cardstock onto a white card base. I cut a smaller panel and embossed it with a snowflake embossing folder by The Paper Studio and layered it onto my card. I die cut some patterned paper from the American crafts Jolly 6x6 paper pad using a pierced circle die from My Favorite Things. I popped it up using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals and added it to the center of my card. I cut apart one of the panels of a small cocktail napkin that my husband brought home for me. I wish I knew who made it but try as I might my search for it online came up a bust. Anyway, I cut one of the panels out and mounted it onto some cardstock for stability and then I added a nice scalloped, decorative border using a punch by EK Success. Once the napkin panel was adhered I popped it up off of the card using more foam dimensionals and added some nice bling with some Christmas red and Frosted Lace Stickles onto the snowman, some clear Wink of Stella glitter pend around the outer edges of the cardstock, and some shimmery and iridescent sequins that I picked up at my local dollar store. I think it turned out so adorable!
