I am excited that I finally got one in without the stress of the last minute! Their theme this week at Merry Monday #267 is an inspiration photo with blue, green, silver/white/vellum. A great combination.
So for my card obviously the background is silver glitter paper (not made by me). The white panel is a die cut which is also obvious. The die set that I used to cut all of the snowflakes is brand new to me. I was wanting some pretty snowflakes and my local paper crafting store was having a good sale so I was happy to buy from them and find something I had on my list. I made the glitter paper by using the double sticky sheets and some fine glitter. Possibly I should have added a little more glitter because those snowflakes were sticking in the dies and challenging to get out. I know the detailed dies do that but they were also a little sticky. I did use some was paper on a second round which helped some. I then colored the snowflakes with Copics. The vellum strip has a pearl finish to it which I think went nice with the card and made it a little less transparent. I cut the sentiment out with dies from that same glitter paper.
If you are interested see the crazy colors of this card in the photos below because of different lighting and such. I was taking the photos late at night with different lamps and the camera flash. I finally used my ott lamp and I think that is the one that came out ok. On top of it all, glittery and shiny is just hard to photograph. I like to use natural light coming in the window in a specific place in my house and very occasionally outside.
