This fortnight Christine of Christine's Cards and Crafts chose the theme of Let it Snow. This was a great theme for me and I wrestled with several ideas for my card design.
I finally settled on this Angel image nestled into a lovely cloud of snowflakes. She was stamped and embossed onto another of the 50 cnt tags that I purchased at the scrapbook store garage sale. The inky background and the inked edges were also already finished on this tag so I can't offer any clues as to the recipe! The embossing powder was holographic and has a lovely sparkle.
This tag is pop dotted onto a white and a cobalt blue snowflake embossed backgrounds. These embossed pieces were also bought at that sale for 5 cents each! I merely needed to add two snippets of the silver glittered border (complete with diamond accents). Due to the depth of this border it is better to cut it up into snippets and slide them under the focal point. That cuts back on a bit of depth not to mention bumpy layers, under the thin tag
The silver Memory Box pine bough die and a few diamond accents finished up my card.
I am entering this card in the following challenges
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
2. Crafty Calender - Christmas In July
