I love the look of tone on tone white backgrounds (even when they are hard to photograph) because they are so super pretty in real life. The texture of the embossed snowflakes definitely gives the look and feel of winter!
I trimmed one of the patterned papers from the kit to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and adhered it to a top fold card base. Next I took a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Cream Cardstock from the kit and die cut the bottom edge with the Dot Scallop Border Die. I just love this die. I used it on THIS card too and it's one of my favorite borders ever!
For the tone-on-tone background I stamped the snowflakes from the Frozen Fractals all over the cream cardstock with the Delicata White Shimmer Ink from the kit. I embossed the snowflakes with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder.
I stamped the words "much thanks" on a strip of black cardstock using a greeting from the Frozen Fractals stamp set and heat embossed the greeting with Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder. I adhered the strip to the cream background as shown.
Next, I backed a piece of Fun Foam with Stick It on both the front and back, removed the backing paper from one side and replaced it with cream cardstock. I die cut the word "snow" from the Winter Snow Die Collection from the dimensional material and adhered it above the stamped greeting strip to complete the greeting!
I finished the card by adhering sequins from the January Card Kit to the center of some of the snowflakes and finishing several with pearl gems as well. I adhered the panel to the card with foam adhesive for additional dimension.
