Funky Flakes Christmas

I finally made a card using snowflakes on it as I had been wanting to use some new dies and images ever since I had purchased them a couple months ago. So today I decided was the day to use them. I made a very clean and simple card design and wanted to have the sentiment as the main focal image. I hope I did not over do it with die cut embellishments and take too much away from that concept.

My card stock used was White and Blue Lagoon from Gina K. Designs. I also used Gina K. Designs Blue Lagoon ink. And for the snowflakes I used silver glitter paper from Stampin' Up.

The snowflake stamps and sentiments are from the CAS-UAL FRIDAYS set called Snowy Sayings and the die cut snowflakes in the silver paper are a FRI-DIES set called Funky Flakes.

I used My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Rectangles to die cut the sentiment and the frame to help showcase it.

I carried the snowflake theme over into the inside as well and once again used a sentiment and snowflakes from the same stamp set.

I am entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge for this week in which the focal image is to be the sentiment.

It is a nice warm and sunny day and once again I was able to join my fellow church members at church. I better go while the weather is still good because when the ice and snow come I don't get out as much.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope your week is off to a great start.

God bless,

I love everything about your card Verna!! The color combo and sentiment are wonderful and the stitched dies you selected are the perfect touch!

I agree with Patti! Very nicely done! We've had beautiful weather this week -- not too hot and not too cold.

LOVE this, your snowflakes are so pretty. All that sparkle. And I really like the Wonky Stitched Rectangles, and the way you placed them horizontally on a vertical card. Very clever and creative.

I think the sparkly snowflakes make this card gorgeous! You definitely didn't overdo it with the die-cuts! It would have been so plain without them.

MM--You don't need to think about a Christmas card design for this year; this is it. It's not too busy and I love the jazzy snowflakes and the colors.
