Go-To Winter Card

I worked this card up with Christmas in mind but looking at it in Blogger I can now see it also used for a winter wedding, christening or birthday.  It's soft and vintage without being too frou.

I first embossed the grayish/creamish designer paper then tucked the ribbon beneath before I rounded the corner.  I then rubbed ink over the snowflakes to draw them out more and to tie in the blue iridescent ribbon.  I like doing a double-bow on my Bow Easy when the ribbon is sheer to give it more oomph.  I ran the snowflake through the x-shaped Xyron sticker machine then covered it with glitter, followed by hemp and glue dots.

The Details:  cream ribbon from my Victorian costuming days, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, hemp, Craft Smart blue ribbon, Paper Studio embossing folder, Versamark Sea Breeze, Pop Tone card stock for base, BasicGrey Nordic Holiday designer paper, Martha Stewart corner rounder, Bow Easy, Sugar Coating lily white glitter.

I'm entering this in CASology #73 Ribbon, Keep it simple! #28 Snow, Crazy for CAS #33 Blue/Grey, Freshly Made Sketches #115, BasicGrey #109 Happy Christmas, Seize the Birthday Winter Topping, and Sweet Stampin' Ribbon.
