Card Swap Thursday: Christmas with Snowflake Sentiments

Yesterday it was snowmen, and today it’s snowflakes, accompanied by lots of sunshine and a wicked windchill today.  I think that the resident golden retriever will be playing lots of ball in the backyard and house today instead of going out for a long walk.  Since we now have snow on the ground, and a forecast that seems to be calling for flurries everyday over the next week, I am sharing a very pretty card for today’s Card Swap Thursday. Laurie Alexander, a demonstrator in Burlington, created this very pretty Christmas with Snowflake Sentiments card.

Laurie’s card features different metallic elements, which adds a great overall sheen to the card.  Combining different colours of metals is very on trend, and something that I rarely do because I’m a silver/white gold kind of girl.  Funny, because if you look at my engagement/wedding rings from 20 years ago, I have both white/yellow gold in them.  I guess we were just ahead of the trend!  Anyhoo…

I love how Laurie wrapped the swirls around the sentiment, giving them added lift off of the overall project.  Cards with embossing or elements popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals always have a great feel to them.  One of my stamping resolutions for 2018 is to use my embossing folders more, and in different ways.  I sometimes forget about them!

Snowflake Sentiments will be available after January 2nd, along with the coordinating Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits, however the Snowflake Sentiments Bundles will be retired.  If you would like to purchase both at a 10% discount, make sure you do so before January 2nd.Wendy's Little Inklings: December Host Code
