♥ Simon Says...Snowflakes! ♥

It's Wednesday! And that means it's time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This time we want to see Snowflakes on your creations! They can be stamped, on a patterned paper, a chipboard snowflake, whatever you choose!

This week the Simon Says DT are featuring products by Glitter Ritz! They have the best, ultra-fine shimmery glitter! For my card, I used both the Ice Blue and White Opaque Microfine Glitters. Those gorgeous Die Cut Snowflakes is one of the new Exclusive Simon Says Stamp Faceted Snowflake Die. Love the details on it!

The beautiful chevron and snowflake background is a stamp by Hero Arts called Snowflakes and Edges. The cute stamped sentiments are by C.C. Designs called Frosty Sentiments. It has the cutest sentiments in it! I also used some Kraft Cardstock that I ran through an old crimper I had and then I inked the edges with some white ink to give a snowy look to it.

On the inside, I made a little pocket for a gift card.

And don't forget, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

Oh, and have you heard the exciting news?!! Simon Says Stamp is now a Member Company over at Splitcoaststampers! My 2 favorite places together in one!! You can read more HERE!

Have a wonderful day!


NOTE: The Faceted Snowflake is not shown. That is the Simon Says Stamp Snowflake Bracket Die.
