The Return of the Merry Snowflakes

Hello, crafting friends!
Last week I posted THIS snowflake card. The colour combination was inspired by Nancy's palette at CAS Colours and Sketches but I felt my card wasn't clean and simple enough for that challenge. So I made another one today :)

This one uses the same snowflakes (from Dies by Chloe) and stars (from the retired Stampin' Up Twinkle punch) but there's no stenciling, I used only one of the Nordic Frames (from the Greetery) and the sentiment is much smaller.

I heat embossed the sentiment in silver, cut it out with the small frame die, and attached it to a card base. The snowflakes and stars were arranged above and below the sentiment and I added a few drops of silver liquid pearls to link them.

Just squeaking in at CAS Colours and Sketches colour challenge *waves to my former teamies there* ; I'm also linking up with Perfectly CAS where the current challenge is Festive - and as always we are asked to use up to a third of the card front.
Today's card would make a perfect note card for this weather if only I had a sentiment that said 'Sending Cooling Wishes'! After I press send on this post, I'm off to the supermarkety; I don't actually need anything - I just want to hang out in the freezer aisle!

Sending hugs,


  1. You achieved such a different look using fewer elements Vicky,a beautiful elegant card

  2. Love this CAS festive snowflakes card.

    What a great idea about the supermarket!!! Xxx

  3. Love the die, the snowflakes and how you used the colours Vicky. A Stupendous card. As for the Supermarket, some of our freezers are down and empty, they've given up under the heat! Unusual for Wales hahaha

  4. What can I say - CAS perfection Vicky! We miss you - so glad you shared with us over at CAS Colours & Sketches this week!

  7. I know what you mean about a trip to the supermarket for a cool down and it's even hotter here today! Love your cool snowflake panel, perfect for the challenge, thanks for sharing at Perfectly CAS. :)

  8. It's beautiful, Vicky. You really are the queen of CAS!

  9. Well done Mrs. Vicky! I love your cooling, soothing card creation. I may just go hang out in the freezer aisle of a grocery store near me as well - however that could also lead to some unwise purchases! Miss you, your creations and humor! Thanks for joining us at CC&S

  10. A beautiful CAS creation,stylish,elegant just like you.The freezer aisle sounds like a great idea.
