Wednesday means it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges! I think this week's challenge can be as easy or as difficult as you choose to make it -- we are asking you to incorporate snowflakes into your project. Here's what I mean, for me at least: when the Christmas season is over, I put essentially all my wintry-themed stamps away. So I could take the easy way out today, and make my first Christmas card of 2013, but that seemed a bit too easy. So I made sure that although my card is wintry, it's non-holiday-specific.
I started with some torn post-it notes to make a softly defined rectangle mask before I embossed my snowflakes with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged the area with ink before removing the masks. A simple white-embossed sentiment, a die-cut snowflake and a bit of bling finished the card. (I'm obviously in an extra-clean-and-simple mood today.) And while I could use this anytime in the next couple of months, I have a feeling this will end up in next December's stash. :D
