MC Nov/13 - CAS - Snowflakes are Butterflies

I mentioned yesterday I was getting samples made for a class I'll be teaching in a couple weeks. I had die cut a bunch of Tim's movers & shapers snowflakes using Sookwang tape on cardstock to glitter them. When I was removing the release paper, I realized I had enough of them to make a background piece... This is the result of that thought.

I side folded my 4.25"w x 5.5"h white card. Lay a piece of 2.5"w Sookwang tape down the left side. stuck my snowflake release papers down and sprinkled with a couple colors of glitter (Ritz micro fine glitter "Peacock Blue" and a blue from a Sprinkler's glitter set). Burnished well then removed the release paper snowflakes. Sprinkled with Distress "Star Dust" glitter. Added Liquid Pearls "Platinum" dots to the snowflake centers.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Black Onyx. Trimmed it down, outlined the edges with the bullet tip of a blue Zig Writer, adhered to card.

Yogi, this stunning CAS Card is pure elegance and beauty - and has the perfect sentiment. Your talent astounds me. I love the sparkling snowflakes in the glittery blue background. I am so sorry to advise you though, that we cannot include this card in our challenge as there is not the required digital element included. Best wishes. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
