Hello. I am still not feeling well. I HATE not feeling well (who does?) But on the bright side, my little guy seems to be feeling better. Just trying to get rid of that leftover cough.
I finally came up with an idea for a card using this weeks Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge technique. My mojo has been on the fritz. Lol. I used to use vellum all the time and then, for whatever reason, I quit…don’t know why I love it! Lol. Here is my take on the challenge.
I alternated flocking the snowflakes and then glittering them up for for a lot of added texture. I really LOVE how it came out! I attached them all together with a rhinestone brad. I didn’t want the back of the brad to show through the back side of the card so I adhered a small piece of cardstock to the back to cover it up and them foam taped the whole thing in the middle of the glitter ring. I should have used my good PTI cardstock for the glitter ring but I wasn’t sure how it would turn out and don’t like “wasting” my good cardstock. LOL! I am impatient when it comes to reordering! (Who isn’t?;) )
Here is a close up of the snowflakes.
