This week we were gifted with a morning of great big fluffy snowflakes. My grandkids from Georgia are here visiting Nana and Papa while their parents celebrate their 10th Anniversary. You can just imagine their delight to see the marvelous big white flakes spilling from the sky. Their first request of the morning was "Can we play in the snow?". I readily agree. After all, it's only November here and the snow was likely to be gone by afternoon. There was something magical about that morning watching the pure pleasure on their little faces. For a moment in time, it was like we were swept away into our own little snow globe. Anyway, all that to say, I just had to play with my Spirited Snowmen and Beautiful Blizzard stamps last night while they were tucked in the beds.
Plus, Joe and I are celebrating 39 years of marriage this week and the charming snowman couple for perfect for an Anniversary card.
Card Design Tips
My background was stamped with Pool Party Ink and the Beautiful Blizzard Stamp set.
I colored my snowman couple with Stampin' Blends. Then, fussy cut them and mounted them on a bit of Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon and a pearlized doily.
The snowflakes were cut with the Blizzard Thinlits Die. This is a very intricate and beautiful die. What I've found when using this die is that it works better if the cut side is facing up with the card stock on top rather than face down with the card stock under it. It's also helpful to use the precision plate when using intricate dies.
The final bit of dazzle is a few scattered Basic Adhesive-backed sequins.
