Northern Flurry

I definitely had a hard time giving birth to this card! I had a hard time figuring out how to do the sentiment without making the card too heavy -- I was aiming for something lighter and more ethereal.  I upped the contrast of the photo to show the detail.  It's very lovely, IRL.

I layered Blushing Bride, Regal Rose and Shimmer White. I sponged some Blushing Bride ink onto the Northern Flurry folder before I put in the Shimmer White, then ran it through the Big Shot. The snowflakes are highlighted with Basic Pearls jewels.

Paper: Blushing Bride, Regal Rose, Shimmer White

Ink: Blushing Bride, Regal Rose

Accessories: Big Shot, Northern Flurry Textured Impressions folder, Northern Frost decorative strip die, Basic Pearls jewels, Dimensionals, White organza ribbon, Scallop Trim border and corner punches, sponges
