There was lots of beautiful texture in The Card Concept inspiration photo, so I wanted to make sure my card had texture, too, but remained Clean & Simple at the same time. The layered snowflake was especially inspired by the star cookies with the frosting on top. I chose to layer vellum instead of white because I love the closeup of the snowflakes on the Simon winter inspiration board and vellum seemed to depict that better. And to really solidify the snow theme, I decided to add some snow on the background. A little detail that I love are the silver "splats" that were actually the leftover cutouts from the die cut joy. It reminded me of how when you step in snow it creates a wet squishy splat. I know...it's pretty silly, but those are usually the things that bring me the biggest smiles.
All this snowy inspiration has certainly got me hoping for a white Christmas. I also hope that this next week is full of love and happiness and lots of blessings for all of you! In case I don't make it back before Christmas....Merry Christmas to you all!
