Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

So I finally have had a chance to participate in the monthly PTI blog hop... I've been missing them, and so I was so glad when I got to sit down and play a little last night! It's not my most favorite card, but I don't mind. I keep forgetting that I don't have to reinvent the wheel for every project... Sometimes, it's nice to sit and just play.

I love the size of the Fab Flakes set. The snowflakes are large enough to really make a statement. Bearing that in mind, I decided to make a 5x7 card instead of a normal A2 sized card. I stamped the flakes in Simply Chartreuse, Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal, and Delicata Silver. I love how they look all clustered together. The sentiment is from Christmas Cheer, die cut from Tropical Teal and stamped in Smokey Shadow. I covered the die cut in some Shimmer Pico Embellishment, added a few sequins for sparkle, and mounted it on a clean white card base. I thought about sponging some ink around the edges, but I decided I liked the way it looked as is.


Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I hope your day is full of laughter, love, and family! One of the kiddos is sick with croup, so we are probably stuck at home tomorrow. Meh. Eat some pumpkin pie for me! :)
