Beautiful Blizzard, Blizzard, Christmas Card

I am such a lover of snowflakes.  I don't like a ton of snow outside but a nice ground cover is perfect!!  I bought this "Beautiful Blizzard" bundle. The bundle includes the stamp set and the dies.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Balmy Blue card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  

Next I die cut the snowflakes using the "Blizzard" thinlits die.  I cut the large one and the smaller one from Whisper White card stock.  I took a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock and sprayed it with Balmy Blue ink mixed with rubbing alcohol.  When the card stock dried, I die cut the second largest one.

I set the largest one on top of the card stock to see where to sponge on the Balmy Blue ink.  In person you can see it better, it's very soft and subtle.  Setting the snowflake back on the card stock also allowed me to stamp Balmy Blue snowflakes on the left side of the card.  I stamped the words from the "Beautiful Blizzard".  I also stamped them using Balmy Blue ink.

Next I glued the large snowflake on the Whisper White card stock.  Then I glued the center of the second snowflake to the center of the large snowflake. And I glued the smaller snowflake on.  I added a crystal rhinestone to the center of the top snowflake.  I taped the Whisper White piece to the card base and I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card and the card was done.  I think it took longer to explain how to make it than it did to actually make it!! LOL

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
