Snowflakes for Christmas

WOW... Okay so it has been a ridiculously long time since my last post!!  Our poor little man has been quite ill off and on for the last three weeks.  I am sure everyone has decided I have just dropped off the face of the earth or something!!  Well, guess what.... I haven't and I have a great CASE project to show you today!  Today is Featured Stamper day over at SCS which deserves an automatic YIPPEEE!!  I love browsing through the galleries of these wonderfully talented artists!  Today's Stamper is Shadow's Mom!!  For those of you who don't know, the challenge is to look through the featured stamper's gallery and choose an item to CASE!! I chose her Noel Tree Card.  Here is my take on her wonderful creation.  I call it Snowflakes for Christmas!!

Snowflakes for Christmas Card
 I do not have a snowflake embossing folder so I created a similar look using a different technique.  I stamped the snowflakes with Versamark dazzle and embossed with stardust powder.  My paper is from TPS's Holiday Winter paper pack.  the blue glitter gems are from hobby lobby (I don't remember the manufacturer - sorry).  I distressed and inked the edges of the red snowflake paper and traced the edges of the christmas tree with a a blue glitter pen.  I also added diamond stickles to the white snowflakes in the tree cut out.  I attached the tree with dimensionals.

Well I know it is a little early for Christmas but I have got to get started early this year.  I am anticipating a lot more orders than I am use to and don't want end up in panic mode!!

I hope every one has a wonderful Thanksgiving and for those of you traveling.... please be safe!
