Sparkle & Shine

Howdy! Today is my birthday! You'd think because of that I would be showcasing something birthday... but I've never been accused of being normal, and I'm good with that! I hope that you have a wonderful day today!

I'm writing this in advance of my birthday, but at this time, I'm still optimistic that I'll be able to spend some time crafting on my birthday! Not going to lie (even if my husband sees this)  - I definitely took advantage of some awesome Black Friday sales to increase my crafting stash - stay tuned for new creations inspired by my fellow talented Design Team members! There's still time to get in on the Black Friday/Cyber Monday awesomeness over at SumMore Fun - 33% off EVERYTHING through Monday at midnight!

I love using glitter with snow layouts and cards. I just think it makes it "sparkle & shine" so much more! For this card, I used the super cute and super fun Raisin Boat Holiday Wishes stamp. Aren't those sentiments awesome?!?

Not going to lie, it seems kind of a waste that I only used this cute sentiment from this amazing stamp set, but I have plans for the rest of it! Sometimes, less is more; and I was afraid to overtake the simple beauty of this card if I used a bigger sentiment.

I started by dry embossing the white background of my card with this cute snowflake embossing folder. I dug through my stash and found these perfect metal snowflakes and coordinating brads.

I really like the divided look, where the embossing stops at the bottom of the card. The pink shimmer trim makes a perfect dividing element.

I used some blue cardstock as my background to tie the winter look together. I added my sentiment with pink ink and a little sparkle in the middle to finish off this card.

On those winter wonderland days when the horizon is covered with fresh-fallen snow, it sparkles out here in the midwest. This card makes me picture that natural beauty!
