Snowflakes

Hello friends,

Another Christmas card for the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme for this fortnight is “Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!”.  This is our last challenge for 2018 DD_Snowand you can create / use anything SNOW related. The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile and as always there is a lovely prize to win!

My inspiration from the picture is the trees, snow and white color. For a “frosty” feel I cut a snowflake border and added some sparkle with fairy dust glitter. I layered the border on turquoise designer paper and added two die cut trees with mirror tape. To embellish the tress is used wax cord bows, small roses and gemstones.  I finished off with more snowflakes, glitter snow on the trees and a die cut sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    There are some amazing cards here for this challenge, but I love yours the best. It looks like a frosty wonderland. So fantastic and fun. Using the mint green is something that I will need to remember. It looks grand.
