Glitter Snowflake Blue

I have had these large silver glittered snowflakes for some time. The are supposed to be Christmas tree decorations but I just thought they would look fabulous on a card.

The latest sketch 620 from Sketch Saturday is the perfect layout for this snowflake. 

I used a sheet of silver mirror card for the base and layered some blue snowflake paper onto it leaving a silver border. 

I recently purchased a fabulous embossing folder from Crafter's Companion. It is such a useful background and I wanted to use it in a different way than a card I made recently.

The central panel is another embossed piece but for this one I cut it so the starburst was centred. I added the snowflake by cutting little slits in the card and attaching with some thin silver wire. The snowflakes are so full of glitter I felt this was a more secure way of attaching that any glue would have been. This back panel was then added to a mat of more of the silver card.

I added a few clear gems in 2 different sizes and a glitter sentiment that has been recycled from a shop bought card.

I am really pleased with how this card has turned out. It is very clean for one of my designs. I just love the very graphic nature of the sparkly snowflake against the blues.

I got absolutely covered in glitter too :)
