Sweet Stamps-Dreaming Of Snow

We are still creating Christmas Cards in July at Sweet Stamps, and this week we are creating using snowflakes or Snow somewhere on your card.


 I had such fun creating this card! I was aiming for a CAS look, especially since I mail all of my cards and wanted to avoid additional postage  The White cardstock is from Paper Temptress, and was torn to make the snow. I stamped the sentiment using Sparkle Silver EP. I used Gilding flakes on the big snowflake using Duo Glue. I added the embossed snowflakes using Holographic EP- it is a cool look!  I added sequins and rhinestones for a final accent.
 The deer is embossed using Aged White Enamel EP and Brownstone EP for the body. First, use the antistatic pad, and the Enamel Adhesive dauber is used to prepare the deer chipboard for embossing.

Challenges:
Pile it On- Winter/Christmas in July
Cards in Envy- Christmas in July
Eureka Stamps- Christmas in July
Outlawz- Christmas in July
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long- CAS

Thanks for stopping by!

A lovely card. I miss using Paper Temptress. With the Cdn dollar being at a low in six years, I have to order Canadian.
