Let it Snowflakes

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! It's been chilly around here...and we had sleet most of the afternoon. Maybe it's just me, but when it's already that cold, just go ahead and snow. It's much preferable to the frozen rain, sleet & ice. Those are just accidents waiting to happen! And besides...I would much rather see lacy, pretty snowflakes like these than frozen pellets of ice. 

To make my wintry blue card, I first die cut the largest layer, then die cut the smaller inset w/ a stitched rectangle.  Then I heat embossed the large & smaller snowflakes w/ white powder onto the smaller inset then sponged on the blue inks from the Kaleidacolor ink pad. I also sponged the larger frame but reversed the colors w/ the dark on top & light at the bottom.
 The greeting took a bit of finagling. I used a stamp positioner & masking to rearrange the vertical SNOW into a horizontal direction & colored it w/ a few blue & blue-violet Copics. I added a couple of die cut shapes that reminded me of snowflakes, a few punched snowflakes & some stickles for a little sparkle.
Here's a look at the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
Supplies:
paper- Neenah white
ink: Kaliedacolor blue breeze, Colorbox frost white pigment
accessories: white embossing powder, snowflake punches, Spellbinders A2 matting basics B & Persian accents dies, Lil' Inkers stitched rectangle die, stickles

Your blues are absolutely spectacular Julie! Love the relatively clean look too - the perfect amount of snow to be beautiful! I hope the approaching storm is as wise as you :)
