Hi friends! I hope this finds you well! Today I'm sharing a card made for the current Paper Players challenge, where the lovely Claire is hosting. It's the monthly CAS challenge and this time the theme is "Snow". I'm also joining the current challenge at Addicted to Stamps, where it is Christmas week.

So many potential ways to go with the snow theme but snowflakes won out!
I went through my pile of leftovers from making Christmas cards and found this gorgeous embossed background. The panel was initially sprayed with Distress Spray Stain and Shimmer Spray, then when dry was embossed with the Filigree Snowflake folder. I just love the pattern and the shimmer makes it so elegant. The panel was trimmed down and added to a white card base with foam tape.
The large snowflake was die cut from holographic paper and the shadow from heavy weight vellum backed with double sided adhesive paper. I first removed the release paper of the vellum and added it to the embossed panel then adhered the snowflake. The sentiment is from a sheet of sentiments and I trimmed it out with my paper trimmer then adhered it across the snowflake middle with foam tape. The final touch was to add a few holographic star sequins.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it! I hope you're staying safe and healthy. Take care!
