FlakyFlake

Ok, alright, already!  So it's not the most ingenious title for a card, but, criminy, it is what it is–a mica flake covered snowflake.  

Moving on . . .

I fell head over heels in love with this maroon woodgrain paper from the Eskimo Kisses collection by Basic Grey.  I'm not really into pre-distressed papers all that much, except for Basic Grey–I just love their papers and love that they produce their collections in scaled down versions, 6×6" pads, that work fab for card-makers!  YAY!

In the Winter Snows Glitter Tri-Pack by Martha Stewart, there is a bottle of "Snow Glitter" (more like mica flakes) which I figured I'd try–really?  I only wanted the coarse grind clear glitter (totally reminds me of those coarse sugar crystals they sprinkle onto yummy bakery goods), but apparently, that specific corase grind glitter is not available all by it's onesie, so I had to buy the 3-pack to get the one. Boo. 

Figured I'd try out the flakes here on the die cut snowflake.  They are rather cool, but, I think I prefer 'em as shaker card filler or sumpin' along those lines.

  1. Your snowflake looks so pretty with your special glitter, and I love the color combo too!!

    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Julie!! Hugs!!

  2. I too love the snowflake,but do not want snow!!!

  3. Oh the color combo is so warm and rich (and looks delicious – perhaps I’m hungry??)…..I too love Basic Grey’s line of decorative papers – thank goodness you get 2 sheets per design…one to use and one to keep (no sharing with my creepy daughter – that’s for sure!!) – great card, it makes me feel Christmas-y!!
