eight more cards. . .


Last year when I was visiting my son in Parker, CO, I purchased one sheet of these beautiful silver snowflakes (Martha Stewart) at Michaels.  There are only eight snowflakes on the sheet.   :*(  The Hero Arts dotted snowflake is also SO pretty, so I just had to pair these two together to make some cards.  The sentiment is from Printworks.

I combined dry embossing and white heat embossing to make the front panel.  A white pearl and silver metallic pearl added just the right amount of "bling".  A silver embossed sentiment is on the inside of this card.  So far this is my favorite of the cards I have made.  I may use this dotted snowflake for another design because I just LOVE it!  Only a little over a dozen more to make and my cards will be finished - YAY!

May you and your loved ones have a blessed Thanksgiving holiday.  I have so many things for which to be thankful - and my online blogger friends are one of those things!  Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog; I truly appreciate it!
