Northern Flurry - Card A Day

Hi everyone, today I'm the designer for Card A Day Blog and the theme this week is snow.  It's very appropriate as we finally had snow over the weekend. It snowed all day Sunday so I guess we can finally say that winter is here.

For today's card I used the Northern Flurry embossing folder and the Snow Swirled stamp set. 

The card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" out of olive green card stock.  The cherry cobbler layer is cut to 5 1/4" x 4".  I embossed the white card stock then cut it down to 5"x 3 3/4".  I sponged the snowflakes with Soft Suede to give them a little bit of color.  I stamped the largest snowflake from the Snow Swirled set and punched it out at 1 3/4" and punched another circle out of the old olive card stock at 2".  I tucked a piece of ribbon behind the snowflake and the top of the red card base.  I stamped my sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink after I had my snowflake placed on my card front.

I stamped the largest snowflake a couple of times on the inside of the card and the other sentiment in the middle.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check back tomorrow to see what Terri Wright has to inspire you.
