Have you ever had card idea in the middle of the night? I must dream about making cards cause I do all the time! The other night I had to jump out of bed and make a sketch for a little guy I've had safely tucked away. I can't even imagine why I was thinking about this stamp since I'm not even close to being ready to start my Christmas cards yet. The next day I figured I might as well make the card I lost so much sleep over. My sketch called for a little tag with a sentiment hanging from the bow...I'm on the fence about it though, I didn't want to take away from the snowflakes.
I think it turned out great, I just wish my pictures were better...the card base is actually Navy...not black. Need a little closer look??

I started with a Navy cardstock base and layered the DeNami iridescent silver cardstock & a layer of white cardstock. For the top panel I used Versa Mark and white heat embossing powder on white cardstock then ink distressed it and finished it all off with a sheer silver iridescent ribbon/bow and a little secret I found that will make anything shimmer just perfectly....

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!


  1. Girrll....I told you this when I saw it have taken this card to the HNL!!!!!!!

    Here I am struggling to come up with an idea and then BAM! you come up with this! FANTABULOUS!!!!

  2. I love your card, the white embossed snow flakes are da bomb!

  3. Beautiful! That ribbon just puts so much elegance over the snowflakes!

  4. WOW! This card is so elegant and stunning! I love that it came to you in a dream! I get "visions" of card that pop into my head. I call it my "mad scientist visions." Once I see a vision, I feel like I HAVE to make that card. Unfortunately, I don't always have time to make them all, but I feel the need to buy the stamps that inspire me so eventually, I can make my creation. :)
