Captivating Snowflake is the Winner! {12 Weeks of Christmas}


I couldn't be more tickled that my entry in the Colour Me Card Challenge #45 won the "Captivator" prize this week!  

I've enjoyed this challenge for months and my creativity is always stretched by their cool color combinations.  As I said yesterday in {THIS POST}, I am often vexed by color, so this challenge helps me work out some new combinations.  I *LOVE* the cards the Design Team come up with -- their work is truly inspiring.  Check them out {HERE}!  You'll thank me!

This card was super-easy to make.  I used my new Snowflake Card Thinlits die (found in the Holiday Catalog on page 22 or {HERE} online).  

Stampin' Up! has a video for you -- there's a great trick for making a snowflake to contrast with the body of the card... My card has a belly band, too, only in mine, I used ribbon!

I ran it through my Big Shot once with a piece of Real Red card stock and again with a snippet of white to give me the contrasting bit behind the moving snowflake.

This Thinlit is worth it for the snowflakes and sentiments alone! I ran some Silver Glimmer Paper through my Big Shot (*twice, sometimes*) to make both the sparkly snowflake and "Brrr" sentiment.  I've used these same elements to dress up gift boxes and other cards.  Wait and see -- I've got more details about those in upcoming {12 Weeks of Christmas} posts!

Don't forget to check out the Colour Me Card Challenge for a new weekly challenge!
