I worked on a Christmas card for Carol's "No patterned paper" theme at The Christmas Card Club.
Boy oh boy, that was harder than I thought! Pulled out my embossing folders and used this Provocraft Cuttlebug snowflake flourish folder. It is call Snow Flurries and is from the Winter Wonderland set.
I did not know the true name as the scrapbook stores here often buy sets and break them up to sell each folder individually! Shaz in Oz at http://calligraphycards-shazinoz.blogspot.ca/
tracked it down for me! Thanks Shaz
I added some tiny diamond rhinestones to the embossed snowflakes and also to the edges of the flourishes. I thought it would tie in with the larger rhinestone trim on the large blue snowflake.
The Peace sentiment is an acrylic script die cut. I added it to an EK Success self stick label. Cut a dark blue card stock mat from my snippets drawer and called it a day!
Sorry for the slightly out of focus picture...The embossed card stock has a shimmery finish and won't photograph the correct shade...It is actually an aqua shade of teal. This was as close to the correct colour I could get...I had to tilt the card to get closer to the correct shade...All that tilting took the sentiment out of focus!!! Sorry!
