Sketch Saturday Snowflake Card

Hi Friends, Happy Monday! Today I bring you a snowflake card that failed to make the Merry Monday challenge yesterday.  For me blogging a card takes longer than making it sometimes, how about you?

I was totally in love with the yummy aqua and brown colors in the Merry Monday inspiration photo. I also wanted to use my newer SSS snowflake stamp set that never saw ink during the holidays.  I stamped the white panel with various shades of Momento ink and added the embossed PTI strip to match. A SSS Alexis Snowflake die was cut with DCWV teal foil paper and set on top of a vellum MFT stitched circle cut. I added SU ticket punched corners to match the sketch with clear gems. 

Challenges I'll link to are:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -Something new (my stamps and die)
Merry Monday (I missed it but wanted to say the challenge inspired my card)
Amusing Challenge -Winter/Snow


  1. Love this, I'm still making Christmas cards too! I figured if a make a few here and there throughout the year it won't be a rush nearer to Christmas! Love the pattern paper and the embossing, great layout too! Hazel x

  2. Wow! That snowflake panel is gorgeous! I would have sworn it was designer paper. Fabulous!!! Great job with all these challenges! I know what you mean about the blogging... Taking the photos and editing takes me way too long, too. Sometimes I think I spend more time on the computer than I do in my stamp room!

  3. Oh my gosh this is sooo beautiful. That mix of inks is so perfect together. Fabulous stamping Kim! Hugs!

  4. Love, love, love the CAS look of your card! Thanks for playing along with us at Sketch Saturday. Hugs, Cathy xx

  5. I'm always looking for designs that help me use up my huge hoard of patterned papers (which this design still is), but call me floored when I got to your text and read that you MADE that beautiful snowflake paper, Kim! What a great eye you have and a steady hand with the stamps and ink!! I'm impressed!! I also really love that stitched circle vellum snowflake brooch! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #3!! Hugs, Darnell

  6. an adorable card, fabulous design! so glad you played along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

    add a little glimmer to your life....sparkle & shine! *~*
