Thinking of You Snowflake Card


This is my 2nd post of the day.  Earlier I posted Valentine's buckets - so don't miss them, I think they're cute :)

I designed this for Tracy over at Craft Junkie Too.  She was hoping to have a small group of designers playing along on her blog with challenges and such this year - however she got some GREAT NEWS and is now designing for Robyn - My Pink Stamper herself.  So, those plans of hers are now put on hold.  Tracy is a wonderful gal and she really deserves this.  I love her dearly!  Congrats Tracy :)  Everyone be sure and visit her blog today, as there are other gals that did a design for her - the theme was winter.  

I wanted to get some use out of my Winter Lace cartridge, so I decided to work with a snowflake.  I cut it out at 2.5 inches with a blue layer for the back and a lavender layer for the front.  I added some Diamond Stickles around the edges and in the center holes for a little sparkle.  The card is a standard 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/2.  

All along the top portion of the card I stamped using SP & Company's Scripty Scripts set.  Then I added some polka dotted ribbon.  On the bottom of the card I stamped Thinking of You using SP & Company's Ultimate Sentiments I.  I put 2 glittery purple buttons around it.  I rounded the bottom corners on a 1/2 inch setting, and then added some stitching lines.

There is finally some snow here in CO.  It's been an unusually warm season for us.  I am happy to see  a little of the pretty sparkly stuff when I look out my window - I love hearing my 2 year old squeal "Snow Mommy!"  :) 

Have a crafty day!
