We're introducing a new challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog! Our theme is Winter Wishes. You may create any type of project, card, or layout that shares what you love about winter. Further details can be accessed by clicking on the link above.
Playing in the snow is among my most beloved childhood memories. We made snow angels, snow forts, and snowmen. I remember sledding expeditions and epic snowball fights. I drew inspiration for my card from these recollections of frosty fun. We just returned from a week at Disney World, so I also gave a little nod to my favorite Disney film, Frozen.
I layered, distressed, and stitched the base of my card with papers from Maja's Vintage Frost Basics collection.
Unfortunately this is one of those cards that looks better in person. I'm posting quite a few photos because I've had a difficult time capturing the details.
I added clumps of glitter glass to achieve the look of ice crystals, though it's a bit hard to see because they're clear. The whole thing absolutely sparkles and shines like tree branches after an ice storm. I also applied Snowtex for a frosted, snowy appearance.
Below is a little peek inside. I crafted a pocket to hold a mat for the greeting, plus there is plenty of space leftover to tuck in a gift card.
Other Supplies: Snowtex, Glitter Glass, miniature branches from my local craft store, Memory Box Frozen border die.
