Festive Flurries and Frosted Finishes

Today I thought I would make a Christmas card for my mom.  I wanted to make one using the Frosted Finishes.  I just LOVE those embellishments.  

I wasn't sure where I was going with this card.  I knew what colors I wanted to use and what stamps but I wasn't clear on what was going to happen from there.

My colors here are Marina Mist, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.  

I took each one of those colors and wet paint brush and swiped it across the center part of my card stock to get a little splash of each one.  While it was drying I worked on the snowflake.  I first cut out a piece of the glitter paper.  Then I stamped the next snowflake using the Marina Mist ink pad but stamping off once.  And with the smaller snowflake I just stamped it directly from the ink pad. I used the dies and cut each one of those out too.

I assembled them using Dimensionals.  After I assembled them I thought the ink on the 3 color splashes was dry enough so I stamped the "Christmas Greetings" from the "Warmth and Wonder" set.  I layered the pieces and that was it.  Now I need to find some verbiage for the inside and it will be ready to give to my mom!

This was a super easy card to make.  I may try to incorporate it into a Valentine's Day card in the near future.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
