TST #96

Here is another Christmas Card as promised for this weeks Try Stampin on Tuesday.

Did you get a chance to check out our great new Design Team last week.  If not now is your chance.  We have even more Designers than ever before and I'm sure that you will recognize a name or two on the list.


This card I have made especially for a co-worker who lives for Purple.  I try and make all of her cards with that in mind and this one will be no different.  She also like Bling so I have added just a hint of that with the snowflake embellishment.
I started with the Northern Flurry's die and punched out the snowflakes in the two shades of purple.  Then using the MS Branch Punch I punched out these in a soft grey colour.  They almost look silver when you put them with the purple.  Then I spread regular clear glue onto the surfaces and sprinkled Mica Flakes over them.  Once they were dry I layered them and set them up onto a Blossom Punch piece that had been sparkled up as well.    

I hope you like what I have come up with.  Now it's your turn.  If you need a little inspiration check out the other Designers at Try Stampin on Tuesday.  Don't forget to post your version of this sketch on the site as well.

Thanks for stopping by.
