White on White, Glitter and Feathers

Greetings, It's Saturday, time for a new challenge with The Crafty Pad. Debbie made a lovely snowman stamp that we are using in our DT cards. The Crafty Pad Design Store is a great place to find digital stamps. Our challenge is #148 White on White. This should turn out to be a great challenge! I hope you all play!

This week I was able to work out a card from all old stuff. Heck the feathers themselves are over 6 years old. Everything else is more like 6 months old:)

To make a fancy, fancy label, I die cut two spellbinders "fancy" labels and one cut of labels 18. Scissor cut the two fancys in half. Tape these four pieces to the back of the punched label. Da Da! Pretty easy huh?

My card background is pop taped to the base card, as layer one. I randomly strip scored the background cardstock. After spraying glue and glittering with fine clear, it gives a little texture thanks to the scoring. My stamped image is clear glittered too. It does make for a difficult photograph of my card, but in person the glittered imaging is charming, like ice and snow. I made the pin from jewelry pieces picked up at Joanns. Just glue to the pin head. Light gray seam ribbon for my bow. A friend noted how nice the bow looks.......sweet kid....there's tape on the back of it to keep the loops where I want them. I wish I could make a great bow. Pearls and feathers make up the rest. The feathers of course mimic snow in a way, but it's also about as close as I'll get to real snow here in Tucson Az.

Well, thanks for stopping by...I always love the visit. Thanks so much! Take care.

This card has also been entered into these fine challenges:

  1. WOWSER! I keep forgetting what great embellishments can be made with feathers. I guess mine are buried too deep in my stash. This card will make me dig them out and use them! Very impressive, Vicki!
