Alpine Frost

Happy Friday!
I hope you've all had a great week. I survived our Wednesday work event (praise the Lord) and am now looking forward to a fun weekend. We're getting our tree either tonight or tomorrow (I'm crossing my fingers for tonight given the number of lights I have to put on it) and from there I'll move into holiday mode. I'm super excited about Christmas this year, can't wait to decorate, and next week I'm having a tasting party so I'll be busy planning that too. *BIG GRINS*

Today I have a dazzling bit of holiday fun for you. I saw the layout in a Close to My Heart catalog but I modified it a bit once I got going.
The snowflakes are cut with Spellbinders Create A Flake I dies and have a liberal coating of glitter and a dazzling blue-green "crystal candy" center.

The card base is a 5-1/4 x 10-1/2 piece of Bazzill Moss cardstock folded in half.
I layered a 4 inch square of Thoroughly Modern DSP on a 4-1/4 square of Soft Suede for the background. Over that, I added a punched doily of Neenah Baronial Ivory and a smaller square of Wintergreen DSP and Always Artichoke.
The snowflakes were diecut, adhered together with foam dimensionals then coated with 2 way glue and Dazzling DIamonds glitter. Note: I layered the snowflakes together before adding the glitter so that I wouldn't have the problem of nothing wanting to stick to the glittered surfaces. The crystal candy dot in the middle was also added prior to doing all the glitter for the same reason.
Finally, the sentiment was stamped on ivory with Soft Suede and Always Artichoke with Stampendous Seasonal Swirls and Hero Arts Holiday Sayings. The piece was trimmed and layered on Soft Suede and then adhered to the smaller square panel.

Have a great weekend everyone!
