First Card of the New Year!

Hello, and Happy New Year!

I realize we are a full week into 2015, but I am finally getting my hands inky!  First, I have a CAS card for 2 blog challenges, just to get warmed up.

The Friday Mashup and Colour Me...! worked well together.  Okay, so snowflakes aren't really purple of any shade, but extra cold days like today make me think of purple.  So yeah, I Mashed these up!

I wanted a quick card to send to my mom.  She lives in South Carolina, but grew up in the north (NY & IL), so she misses the snow...a little bit.

Not much to this card...just a perfect plum card base topped by whisper white and a strip of metallic silver card stock.  I rounded all of the corners. Both of those top layers are dry embossed with the Northern Flurries embossing folder.  I sponged the snowflakes with perfect plum ink.  The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, highlighted by the modern label and scallop oval punches.  That pattern paper is from YEARS ago!  I added silver ribbon and some rhinestones for more shimmer.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Such a pretty card, Kim. I'm sure your mom will appreciate it! :) I definitely think of purple and blue when I think of snow too even though it's white! Thanks for playing with us at the Friday Mashup.

  2. Such a pretty, pretty snowflake design, Kim! Living on the Texas Gulf Coast, this is the only type of snow I get to see so I can feel for your mom! The last time it snowed here was Christmas Eve,2004.

  3. love the dry embossing and your layout - thanks for joining us at Colour Me...!

  4. Beautiful snowflake! Wonderful card. Love it!

  5. Know this was for your mom, but my first thought was "what a great masculine card"!
