Let it SNOW!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...but the fire is so delightful...and since we've no place to go...Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

I just got my new set Snowflakes, and this is my first card made with it! I LOVE this, and you'll be seeing more cards made with this set very soon! :)

I chose burgundy and chocolate chip for this one...I just felt like going outside the "norm", which would be the light blues and silvers. I guess I'm not ready for that winter chill that light blue brings, but I am starting to get into the Christmas mood.

I stamped the big snowflake in Baroque Burgundy and then used the choc chip marker to color over all the tips and the little diamonds in middle of snowflake. I love the two-tone look. Then I sponged the outside edges in choc. chip. I wish my words would've shown up darker, but I think my burgundy marker is running low. For the background, I stamped all the snowflakes in burgundy, choc. chip, and close to cocoa ink and then sponged the edges again with choc. chip. For the brads, I lined up the top edge of a customer order form (that thingy with all the holes in it) and used those as a guide as to where to punch my holes...just so I get them evenly punched (I'm so bad at eyeing things!) Also, I wet the edges of the burgundy c.s. and rolled it to age it a little bit. That's all!

I'm almost ready to go make snow angels, except for one little thing...we need snow! I heard we're suppose to get some this weekend though. Woohoo!! :)
