I sat down yesterday, determined to create *non*-holiday related cards.
That totally didn’t happen.
For good measure, after I finished the Christmas cards, I did do a couple of layouts to get my 13 month old’s scrapbook started. You know… not to rush or anything…
I had this idea last year, to create some form of rainbow effect using snowflakes. I just love love LOVE snowflakes (I’ve never been shy about admitting this), and this was a really out-of-my-box type of card for me, so it took awhile to pull together, given it’s simplicity. The stamping was easy… it was deciding how badly I wanted to cover up that beautiful background…
So I decided to use a circle cut from vellum to ground my sentiment without covering up my rainbow.
Stamping the pattern came together pretty quickly, and I can’t properly describe the love I have for these Simon Says Stamp snowflakes. I have a lot of snowflake sets, but I really do grab for this one probably the most. It’s hard to tell from my photo, but the die cut sentiment (another favourite from SSS) is covered in glitter. I also debossed the background with a linen cover plate from Papertrey, but it’s definitely a subtle effect.
I hope you’re enjoying your weekend, wherever you are… it’s a drizzly, true fall day here, and my whole family has left me alone in the house, so I’m in my glory. Happy Saturday!
