Snow is Falling

Good morning Crafters! I am at a needle felting workshop this morning so I'm scheduling my post for 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown. This week we have a sketch for you to play with. It was created by our dear friend and ex-DT member Mynnette, so I hope she has time to look at all the fabulous cards I am sure you will create.
Here's the sketch

I love the card I made for this one, it was so quick and easy and yet has quite a wow factor. I used a mat of dark blue cardstock and die cut two white snowflakes, using a Memory Box die. Then, I covered the whole mat with snow-falling printed acetate. Finally, I added a glittery silver peel off sentiment (since I've tried heat embossing on acetate and believe me it doesn't work!) and two large light blue gems in the centre of the large snowflakes. Going to enter this card in the die cuts and punches challenge at Make My Monday too


It was hard to photograph, to avoid reflections, and dificult to stick down the acetate -I used a glue pen on the white bits- this is what took the time, and being patient, waiting for it to stick, but the overall effect is very luxurious in a CAS kind of way.
Do have a look at the creations from my fellow teamies and don't forget, Christmas is getting ever closer, need to get those cards done now!
