Serene Snowflakes

I created this card for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. I really love stamping snowflakes in non-traditional colors. The challenge was to use Wild Wasabi, Cherry Cobbler and Real Red.

I used the stamp set Serene Snowflakes. I also used the Tasteful Trim die, and added some Basic Pearls for texture. I really love Stampin' Up!'s Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, and added a little Very Vanilla taffeta (retired). I used this taffeta before I realized it was retired, in place of that you could use either Very Vanilla 1/8" Taffeta, Very Vanilla 1/4" Grosgrain, Very Vanilla Designer Velvet Ribbon, Very Vanilla 5/8 Satin Ribbon, or 5/8" Victoria Crochet Trim.

The patterned paper is from the Holly Berry Boquet Specialty Designer Series Paper. What's fun about this DSP is that it has some patterns that are GLITTERED!!! So pretty!

I hope you enjoyed my card, as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Thanks for visiting, see you soon!

The colored snowflakes are definitely beautiful. I especially like the way you tied the two ribbons together. It's one of my favorite embellishments! Thanks for joining the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition challenge!
