Snowflake Visions for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello friends!  It's time for a new Tic Tac Toe Challenge and this week I am the featured designer.  Oh my gosh, can you believe how quickly Christmas is approaching?  If you still have Christmas cards to make for this year, I hope my board inspires you! 

For my card I went down the middle column - snow, free, blue.

This card was so easy to put together after spending an afternoon playing with pastes, embellishment mousse and embossing folders!  I shared some other creations using this same process last week - use this link if you haven't already seen that post.

Anyway, for the background I used a 3D embossing folder with a panel of Midnight card stock, then applied some Simon Hurley Clear Skies Lunar Paste using a Ranger ink blending foam and handle, making sure to leave a bit of the dark cardstock showing around the snowflakes for some contrast. The paste dries quickly so I was able to trim down the panel, adhere it to a larger panel of silver then add to a white card base.

Next I added a large snowflake die cut from silver glitter cardstock, topped it with another snowflake die cut from matte silver cardstock, then layered the sentiment across the middle.  Making things even simpler was that the sentiment was from a package of pre-foiled and die cut sentiments.  Super quick to make with nearly all the components made ahead of time.

Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it!  Be sure to use the link above to check out the beautiful cards from the other DT members and hopefully be inspired to join us this week!

Take care!
