Thinking of You- A Wintry Snowflake for Three Challenges :-)

Hi Stampers!!

One more post for the weekend- this card was created using the CCMC281 Create with Connie and Mary Sketch along with the DD83 Dynamic Duos Colors and the FM139 FridayMashup! Theme Challenge- this card uses Heat Embossing as well as a Winter Theme (non-Christmas) so I "Mashed It Up!" :-)

If you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to stop by each site and check out all of the designs- they are fabulous!!

To create this card:

De-static a piece of Marina Mist cardstock with the Embossing Buddy® and stamp the snowflake from Best of Snow using
Versamark™ ink, apply the Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.   

Once cooled,  cut the snowflake out using the 2 ½” Circle Punch and also punch out a circle the same size from Crumb Cake cardstock.
Hand cut the Crumb Cake 2 ½” Circle in half and adhere behind the snowflake image allowing a bit of the Crumb Cake to show on each of the sides.  

Mount the snowflake image onto a White Tea Lace Paper Doily and add the Festive Flourishes Embellishment to the center.

Adhere a piece of Marina Mist Designer Series Paper (DSP) to a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock,   Add the 1 ¼” Burlap Ribbon banner and add sthe 5/8” Whisper White Organza Ribbon over the burlap per the sketch.

Mount this panel onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, then again onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and finally onto the Marina Mist card base.

Add the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes (stamped using Marina Mist Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock) and create the banner points with the Hexagon Punch.  Layer the sentiment onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock (also punched with the Hexagon Punch).

Add the sentiment and snowflake panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® , finish off the card with Rhinestones on the corner, on the ribbon band and sentiment :-)
