Snow Fun

front of card
It's time for the Die-Versions November New Release.  This month's release is all about winter fun.

My shaped card incorporates quite a few of the new dies, including the Snow Fun Corner Concepts die, Skate Around Whispers die, and three of the Cold Weather Wee-Petites dies.  Plus, there's lots of glitter and flocking to make the card sparkle and shine.

To start off, I die cut the Corner Concept and covered the letters with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Silver Lightning embossing powder.  Love that the glitter is already incorporated into the powder.  The rest of the die is covered with SNS's micro-fine Cloud Nine velvet glitter.

Next came the skates.  They are colored with Copic markers and the bow is covered with Cloud Nine velvet glitter.  Since the bow is colored with a cool gray marker, that color shows through the glitter for a nice silvery look.  As you can see from this side view, I die cut the bow portion of the die multiple times and glued these pieces together to create dimension.  This is a good way to add height when you don't have enough room to add dimensional dots.

inside of card
The inside sentiment is by Unity Stamps and is also heat embossed with Silver Lightening embossing powder.  All the silver portions on each of the Cold Weather Wee-Petites is covered in Sonic Silver glitter and Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft was used on the white areas on the ear muffs and the trim on the mittens.  It feels so soft and fuzzy, just like the real thing.  The color on the mittens is from Purple Potion glitter and a black marker was used to create the sole on the skate.

Anne, this is such a pretty sentiment by Unity. So pretty, and a darling shape card, too! I like how you carried the theme from outside to inside and wonderful coloring with the less showy denim in the background. hugs, de
