I've been on a snowflake kick lately. I think we have snow in the forecast for the next few days here in MN. It's mostly flurries, but on Monday they are calling for "measureable" snow. Oh boy!!
The Rich Razzleberry base card measures 4 1/4" x 11" (folded in half).
The next layer is Pale Plum. I ran it through my Big Shot using the Petals a Plenty Impressions die. The embossing is nice and deep. I lightly ran over the embossing with a sponge and Rich Razzlberry ink. It's very hard to see in the picture but this layer has been "glitzified" (another Patti-ism) with my homemade Shimmer mist (mix rubbing alcohol and Frost White Shimmer Paint in a spritz bottle). I also used my Color Spritzer Tool and my Rich Razzleberry marker for added color.
The Pale Plum focal layer is stamped with various snowflakes (from Serene Snowflakes) using Rich Razzlberry and Pale Plum inks. I sponged the edges with Rich Razzleberry ink and spritzed with the Color Spritzer Tool and a Rich Razzleberry marker. I once again used the Shimmer Mist on this layer. I matted it on a 1/8" larger piece of Rich Razzleberry piece of cardstock.
Following the sketch, I used ribbon for the horizontal strip. I layered some Rich Razzlberry Polka Dot grosgrain on top of the White Organza Ribbon.
For the bottom circle element, I chose to use a Clear Button that I sponged with some Frost White Shimmer Paint. It totally transforms the look of the button. After it dried, I added a knot of the Rich Razzleberry ribbon.
I chose to leave off the sentiment. I know....I am such a rebel. LOL!!!
