Stamping 411 Sketch Card~Snow Swirled

Hi Everyone,

It’s time for another Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411. I hope you will find some time in your week to play along.

Here is the sketch:

…and my interpretation…….

I’ve showcased the Snow Swirled Stamp Set here and embossed with Silver. I added some silver card stock by punching some circles and adding to the back of the image piece creating a scallop border. Then jazzed it up with some of our awesome Rhinestones.  the Image piece is 3 1/4 x 4 and completely done with Versamark and Silver Embossing Powder.  I did add some Rhinestones to the tree and a larger one on top. My Bow is a double bow and I attached my small stamped oval to the center with dimensionals. I also added Rhinestones to the ends of it. The saying Noel comes from the Many Merry Messages Set.   I think I got a little carried away with my rhinestones but what the heck…..it was fun to make. Let’s not forget the Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder on the front base of the card.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a ………….

Stampinglee Good Day!

I have always loved how white on white looks so elegant, but to go and add my favorite brushed silver just put this card over the top! I am already thinking of other stamp sets to use with this gorgeous design. Thanks so much for sharing this work of art!
