Have you heard the song by Rosemary Clooney "Here Comes Suzy Snowflake"? Well that's our prompt for this week's Jingle Belles card brought to us by Marie Bingaman. What a cute little song and a fun challenge.
I didn't do any stamping on this card, but don't think that it didn't take some planning and preparation. Those snowflakes that make a snowflake where punched out of Baja Breeze cs with the Simple Snowflake punch. Then they were carefully lined up to form a larger snowflake with six points as every snowflake is supposed to have. I didn't glue them down completely, just mainly in the centers as you can see below.
It was after I glued them down that I thought about adding the Dazzling Diamonds glitter and did so by using my Tombow glue just on the end tips of the flakes. To finish it off I added the sticky rhinestones in the centers of the flakes. The card base here is watercolor paper - a thicker paper I thought necessary to be able to stand up nicely. I just so happened to be gifted some old watercolor tablets this summer and they have come in handy for some card bases recently.
This card could double as a quilt square - minus the glitter of course. As much as I don't particularly like working with glitter, sometimes it helps get things straightened up. How is that you might ask? Well, usually I wind up changing the paper mat on my work table after I'm done with the glitter because you just can't get every little speck up. It's nice starting fresh now and then.
So, let me get over to the gallery and take a look at all those other snowflake inspired works of art. You can check it out too here.
