FFC12 - Snow


Time for our next Festive Friday challenge, and this one is guaranteed to keep you cool! It's a trigger challenge and the trigger is Snow!


Snow Trigger

I used cool blue and some chunky Martha Stewart glitter  to create my snow scene. I put double sided tape on some white cardstock and then cut the hill and the PTI snowman as well as my mat. I peeled the protective layer off the mat and then stuck my blue and white scene on it. Then I removed the protective layer off the snow and the snowman and dunked the whole thing in the glitter.

No sentiment - I love the serene peaceful feeling of this (and I didn't want to emboss in white - it wouldn't have matched the 'snow'!)

This reminds me of the cards I see for sale in the Chicago Art Museum. They always have gorgeous, modern Christmas cards. This is spectacular! What a perfect blue...the snow just pops in contrast to it. Simply fantastic. Love this! Bev

Wow !! so super sparkly, I think white embossing wouldn't have worked either. Such a fun Christmas card :0)

I adore snowmen and this is a FAB card! Love the creative design and sparkle. :D

Yep, super peaceful. The lack of sentiment makes it even more seem like just after a big snow when it's pure, clean and QUIET! Wonderful effect, Ardyth!
