Very Merry

Happy Saturday! Have you started your holiday prep yet? Only 2 weeks until Thanksgiving and only 6 until Christmas...can you feel the stress starting to build? Smileys

I'm hoping to start on my Christmas cards soon, but I find I always need a few extras, so I'm trying to make them as I do some challenges. Boy, did I have a blast making this one! I combined two challenges: today's 365 Cards challenge to use snow and Limelight's Sketch and Product challenge 34, focusing on chipboard.


I painted my snowflake white, then added Martha Stewart snow glitter. This was my first time using this glitter (I got it half-off after Christmas last year), and I love the way it turned out--so sparkly and fun! I added a button and some Kaisercraft rhinestones to finish the look, then paired it with BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses paper. What do you think?

Stamps: Short & Sweet (SU)
Paper: Sweet Blush, Garden Green, BasicGrey dp
Ink: Garden Green
Accessories: chipboard snowflake (Oriental Trading Co.), button (PTI), rhinestones (Kaisercraft), glitter (Martha Stewart), white paint (Americana)

Very cool! Did the glitter stick on because of the paint- or did you need another adhesive to keep it on?
