White Christmas

I know that tomorrow is the first day of fall, but I have a Christmas card to share today. This is card #17 for Project Christmas 2013.

I combined two challenges on this card. The layout is ART15 from A Random Thursday blog and the all white colour scheme is C4C203 from the Crazy for Challenges blog. I thought the all white challenge was absolutely perfect for snowflakes.

I used Sweet Tooth card stock for the card base and for all the elements on the card. I used the Washi Patterns Die-namics to cut out the two washi strips then stamped them with patterns from the Washi Patterns stamp set, using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink. After a few minutes I realized I could emboss them with white powder, but I think the ink had tried a tad too much and I didn't get complete coverage with the embossing powder. But I still like the end's almost like distressed embossing to me. Like the "snow" has been wiped off the patterns. The sentiment from Stitched Stockings was stamped with Steel Blue Premium Dye Ink.
I used the largest of the Let It Snowflake Die-namics to cut out the Sweet Tooth snowflake then I gave it a generous coating of Sheer Sparkle Glitter Glaze. Once that dried I mounted the snowflake on foam tape.
Here's a shot of the shine on the snowflake. I love that it's both sparkly and shiny! And by the way, I discovered that it is not easy to photograph an all white card, so my apologies for the poor photos.
Here are the supplies I used:
