Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger | Shimmer & Shine

I am completely in love with snowflakes this holiday season, especially gorgeous (and detailed) snowflake stamps! My favorites this year are Wplus9's Folk Art Flurries, Papertrey Ink's Snowflake Medley stamps & dies and Winter Penguin, and Hero Arts' Christmas Reindeer. When I saw this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger inspiration photograph, I immediately thought of using PTI's Snowflake Medley die + silver embossing powder. I also love the cream and silver color combo from the photo. I added Papertrey Ink's Sweet Blush to my card for a little bit of color. 

Here is this week's inspiration photograph:

Here is my take:

 (Supplies - Cardstock: (PTI) Vintage Cream, Sweet Blush. Stamps: (PTI) Stylish Sentiments: Holiday. (Wplus) Folk Art Flurries. Ink: (PTI) True Black. Versamark. Impression Plate: (PTI) Peace Be Still. Patterned Paper: (PTI) Soft Stone Patterns Pack. Glitter: Martha Stewart. Chipboard: (Wplus9) Wafer Board. Other: silver embossing powder, button, ribbon.)

I cut the snowflake die out of Wplus9's Natural Wafer Board and embossed it 4 times with silver embossing powder, letting each layer cool completely before applying another layer. The smaller snowflake was also cut out with wafer board + vintage cream cardstock. I smeared clear glue all over the cream piece and applied white Martha Steward glitter all over it. I let it dry completely before adhering it to the silver embossed snowflake, and adhering a button on top. A sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Stylish Sentiments: Holiday finishes off the card nicely!

I am also entering my card in this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge: Knotty or Nice.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is a beautiful card, Erin. It's delicate and bold at the same time. The silver embossed snowflake looks outrageous (in a good way!).
