Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge 301: Snow is Glistening

Good morning! 

I know the fall weather has just arrived and you may not want to think about it but the holidays will be here before you know it, trust me it's better to embrace it and start getting prepared so you're not stressed at the end of the year.  Stampin' Up! will be releasing some limited addition products (Snowflake Showcase) in November to help get you on your way to completing beautiful holiday cards, gifts, and décor so I decided this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge would be perfect for showcasing these items.

I used Whisper White Thick cardstock for the cardbase and then sponged around the edges with Night of Navy ink.  Next I used Pool Party cardstock for the cardfront and used the large tree image from the Snow is Glistening stamp set and stamped repeatedly (the stamps being photopolymer made for easy alignment) to great a snowy background.

I used the Snowfall Thinlits dies and the Big Shot to cut three different size snowflakes using Night of Navy, Silver Glimmer Paper and the new White Velveteen Sheets (these things feel amazing!!)  The greeting is from the same stamp set and was stamped in Night of Navy ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out with the Big Shot and Layering Ovals Framelits.

For the gray strip I used a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and embossed it with the Big Shot and Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder.  The final touch is the ribbon element in the top corner and I took a piece of Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon and looped it over and tied a bow using Whisper White Baker's Twine.

I definitely did the happy dance after this card was finished, so much texture and dimension and the products in this new limited edition suite are amazing and I'll be using it for several other projects.  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing using this sketch and then we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create!
