snow day, take 2

This is the card that I had to make today. I'd thought that I'd put away the winter theme for this season, but no.

This card was made using a set of Sizzix textured impressions folders--the snowflakes and the snowman. For the embossed snowflakes border I used the double 'bossing technique that I wrote about earlier. This time I used Core'dinations card stock. I embossed first this time and sanded the embossing. Those are the very light snowflakes that you see. I then debossed and dabbed the entire surface with Versamark Dazzle Frost. I think you can see some of the shimmer, particularly near the top of the card. The snowflake embellishments were made using a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is by Hero Arts and stamped using Memento dye inks.

This is why I was back in wintry mode. We'd already had a snow day Tuesday due to a mix of sleet and snow.

This is how my backyard looked this morning. The sun was shining, and the sky was turning blue as the clouds cleared out. We got probably close to 6" of snow in all, most of that coming overnight. It looked so pretty, but it was still rather cold at this point.

As you can see, that didn't deter some of us who were bound and determined to get out and run around and live in the moment. :-)


  1. This card is lovely. I love just the blue and white being used. The snowman looks so effective surrounded by the snowflakes. What a lovely picture of your garden and the snow - magical!!! Kym xxx

  2. Your yard looks a lot like mine except you can't tell if there are any signs of life in that snow! LOL! You have awesome talent in your cards too! I just love them all! TFS!!!
