The Flip side of BasicGrey's Silent Night Paper

A second star burst card. Love love love this set. If you click the pic you might be able to catch a little glint of the bling, but it really is nicer in person. I must have been a crow in another life: shiny things mesmerize me!

DETAILS: I stamped the snowflake in "Not Quite Navy" craft ink & put Heat'n'Stick powder on right away. Then, I heat gunned it & added the Dazzling Diamonds. I recently learned that I was overheating my Heat'n'Stick. It only needs to change to clear then it's ready. Otherwise, you lose stickiness.The snowflake is on a dimensional. In its center, I've got one of those clear bubble stickers (from ScrapEssentials.) I stuck it on with Crystal Effects, though, since the dazzling diamonds might impede it sticking. The circle of whitish d.p. in the middle is "BasicGrey Figgy Pudding "Silent Night" (FIG-1011) and the turquoise is "Jolly" (FIG-1004) from the same line. I've stamped on it with Blue Bayou, Cool Caribbean, and Mellow Moss ink. The rest of the layers are distressed with a sponge dauber & the distressing tool. The ribbon is white taffeta.

Happy Stampin'

Hey Mel! Are you sure you weren't a cat in a previous life? My cat LOVES shiny things.

This is a beautiful card. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your creations and learning more about my sister.
