Paper Players 126 & News!

Ahh… Monday… back again I see! How was your weekend? Mine was GREAT! I got most of my to do list accomplished and had so much fun at my two parties. Just when I thought that it couldn’t get any better I got some exciting news! I will be a Guest Designer on the Paper Players Challenge for the next six months starting in January! WOW! I’m a huge fan of the talented group of ladies and am honored to be with them. I can’t wait to get started. How fitting that today is my post for this week’s challenge!

This week’s challenge will last for two weeks and Ann has given us a Clean & Simple Challenge with snowflakes…

Paper Players #126

I love snowflakes, just as long as they are on a card and not floating through the air! My card starts off with a base of Not Quite Navy Card Stock. For the Whisper White panel I started by punching a hole in the upper left with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. I cut out a piece of Window Sheet and adhered it to the back over the hole. The stamped snowflakes and greeting are from the Snow Swirled Stamp Set and are stamped in Not Quite Navy. All of the snowflake images have a Basic Jewel Rhinestone in the center of them. The snowflake on the Window Sheet is created but cutting out some Silver Glimmer Paper with the Snow Flurry Bigz Die. I adhered the two parts together and to the Window Sheet with some Mini Glue Dots.  The panel is then adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the simple elegance of the card and the shadow that the Silver Glimmer Paper snowflake casts on the card base. I hope you enjoyed my Paper Players Challenge card for this week. Thank you for checking in with me and I hope that you have a good Monday! 🙂
