SUPPLIES Die  Snowflake Trio (Penny Black 50-015) Stamp Jingle All the Way (Technique Tuesday) Inks Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Broken China Distress Inks (Ranger); Dylusion London Blue Ink Spray (Ranger); Mistery Huey’s Shine (Studio Calico); Mister Huey’s Silver (Studio Calico); Perfect Pearls Antique Gold Mists (Ranger); Other Christmas 6×6 Patterned Paper (MME); Clear Glitter Pen (Sakura); Gold Lame Cord

I was working on a separate project using diecut snowflakse when I realized that I could use the negative panel for a card.

I really liked how the panel turned out that I thought it would be great to use it in a different way. I love the luster of the panel.  I first colored the heavy cardstock panel with various hues of Distress Inks (Chipped Sapphire; Faded Blue Jeans and Broken China).  I then spritzed heavily with several types of colored mists.  I added Dylusion London Blue Spray.  Once that was dry, I added Mister’s Huey’s Shine, Mister Huey’s Silver and finally Perfect Pearls Antique Gold mist.  I set that the to dry.  I die cut the two of the snowflakes from Snowflake Trio (50-015) and set them aside for another use.

Behind the negative panel, I added Christmas patterned paper which was also spritzed with Perfect Pearls Antique Gold mist.  I wrapped gold lame cord several times around the panel and added a bow.  The panel was adhered with dimensional adhesive.  The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.  And for further shine, I used a clear glitter pen to the second “twinkle” of the sentiment.

I am entering this card in the last Festive Friday challenge of the year.  This is the first time I am joining in.  I’ve always wanted to jump in and give it a go but just didn’t get around to doing  it. The final challenge is to pick your favorite challenge of the year.  Since this is my first time, I am going to choose one the many that I wished I entered.   Appropriately, I will choose the Element Challenge: Create a Project Incorporating a Snowflake into Your Design.
