Snowflake Shapes



Merry Monday #79 at Always Playing With Paper has a Christmas challenge this week that requires snowflakes and the colors blue, silver/gray, and white.

The new Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers is Susie aka susie australia. I combined the two challenges after finding this card in her gallery to case.

The snowflakes are die cuts (listed below) and I've used Inka Gold Metallic Rub in silver to make two of my snowflakes the silver/gray color. The embossing folder is listed below, also. I bought the folder because I thought it looked like falling snow.

I'm adding my card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge/Christmas/Happy Holiday

So schlicht und doch so wunderschön.
Mir gefällt Deine Karte sehr. Das geprägte Papier als Unterbrechung sieht toll aus.

Ganz liebe Grüße, Carmen

This EF does look like the 'hard to find' KARS one! Love the icy blue you chose to go with your silvery flakes, and great way to show this EF with your borders. Really loving this card. TFS & Hugs

The falling snow embossing folder looks is so effective as a background to your lovely silvery Snowflakes. A lovely clean card Benzi. Thank you so much for joining us at Merry Monday.
