Sparkling Snowflake

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is Sparkle (perfect for this time of year) and our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers. This challenge will run for four weeks over the busy festive period so it’s open until 6 January 2018. (2018! What happened to 2017?)

I had so many ideas for my card – mainly involving glitter paper/glitter paste/sparkle embossing powder! But none of them turned out how I wanted! So I kept it super simple and chose one of my favourite Memory Box dies from a few years ago. I cut my card base with the die and simply added some holographic paper behind it rather than attempt inlaid die cutting!

I ummed and ahhed about adding a sentiment and in the end I decided against it. At the moment, it can be used as a card for a friend who doesn’t celebrate Christmas, or a thank you card, or anything really. Besides, I can always add a sentiment when I use it! In reality I think I will simply leave it as is when I send it!

It’s been really grey here recently, but I was so pleased that the sun emerged very briefly when I finished making the card. Perfect for showing off the holographic sparkle! Isn’t it pretty?

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Bharati from Handmade Happiness. She has some amazing creations on her blog, so please drop by her site!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!
