Let it snow!

I was so excited when I was first approached by Tamra Pope to join her tiny swap group. The swap was only 4 cards, but boy, was there a doozy of a requirements list! Not hard to fill, just very detailed (must have at least 8 layers, must include a stamped background, no red/blue/green etc...) so it was kind of like putting a puzzle together! Here's my card, which I made using D1480 Snowflakes, Desert Sand and White Daisy CS, and a whole lotta bling!
Here's a close up of the main layered snowflake. There is foam tape between two of the layers to help give the element some definition. Even the button center is layered with a medium sparkle! I filled in the top Artiste cut snowflake with Silver Glitter Glitz, which I dotted and painted on throughout the background stamping as well.
I even layered the fibers on the card, using both Color Ready Seam Binding and Grey Baker's Twine that I shredded on the ends.I had to use foam tape under this fabulous bit o' bling which actually came from the Haunted assortment. I even have my snowflake Jams on - can you tell I am hoping for snow?

I'm linking this card to the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge. How gorgeous is that silver tray?


Hope you are warm, cozy, and safe wherever you may be!

I love this card. It's such an unusual colour scheme for winter but it works so well together. I AM going to case this one. I may add a touch of pale blue as well.

This is SOOOO beautiful! I had to slowly look at the detail shots just to take in all the beautiful techniques! This would be a hard card to send out---I would want to keep it!

Wendy, the card is gorgeous! I remember seeing the WIP shot from a bazaar and wondering what it was going to be like when you were done! It turned out wonderfully!

Wow, wow, wow! I love every single thing about this. If I ever do stop staring and actually make one for myself, I think I just might keep it. Gorgeous!!!

I agree with all the comments above--you definitely need to frame and keep this card. It is stunning. Does the swap mean you had to create it THREE more times? It is a gift in itself... THanks for sharing this with H2H challenges this week. Hope to see you in 2013!

Wendy, I wanted to let you know that I loved this card so much I decided to use it for a gathering. When I made my own, I changed it slightly. I posted about it today on my blog, giving you credit of course. I would love for you to come check it out. http://nickiehoffer.blogspot.com/2013/01/winter-snowflake-card.html
