MC Dec/12 - Blue&White_Snowflakes

click on card image to enlarge
I was playing with this snowflake embossing folder (Cuttlebug "Winter Wonderland" set) and liked the results... I embossed on white cardstock, sprayed with Dylusions ink "London Blue" and a touch of the purple. Dried and sanded the high points. Sprayed with perfect Pearls "Perfect Pearls" which wet the movable ink, so when dry, sanded lightly again... Used Tim's distressing tool around the edges.

Layered it onto a side folded white main card 5.5"w x 4.25"h. Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) - one of this year's Xmas quote stamps - on white cardstock with Versafine Majestic Blue and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders "Fleur de Lis" Rectangle, ran thru machine again to emboss the design and adhered to card front.

Added some Stickles ""Crystal Ice" glitter to the centers of the snowflakes and the dots.
