Core'dinations Snowflake Card



 
This card was directly inspired by SU Demonstrator, Chiaki Haverstick. The only change I made between her design and mine was - she had a jumbo pearl in the center of her snowflake and I have changed by adding rhinestones to both the center and tips of the snowflake.
 
This card is built on a Crumb Cake cardstock base. The Early Espresso Core'dinations paper was dry embossed with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder (127819 for $7.95) from the Holiday Catalog on the Big Shot. Then you lightly sand the top of the embossed image to create this cool effect. You would need the Stampin' Sanding System (129367 for $3.95) and the Dust Buddy (129366 for $2.50) to complete this effect. Then the next layer is Crumb Cake cardstock, a sheet from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack in your choice of designs (126904 for $6.95), then a small piece of Early Espresso stitched grosgrain ribbon is wrapped around those layers. Then depending on what color DSP you chose, you would need a matching 1-3/4" punch cardstock circle to go under the Bigz Die Snowflake die cut with the Big Shot using Shimmer Paper. The card is finished by stamping the sentiment in Early Espresso ink from the Teeny Tiny Tags set then punched out with the window punch and attached underneath the snowflake. Embellish with the Rhinestone Jewels. Beautiful elegance!
