joyful snowflakes...

This card is for my friend Kristyn to bring to a swap we are going to. We were at Georgann's the other night cutting, cutting, cutting and I threw it all together in baggies and made the final sample because we didn't have ribbon there that *worked* on this. I really like the way this silver ribbon pulls the sparkle from the shimmery card stock of the main image.
We CASED this from a Christmas card G did last year. We just spun it and changed up the embellishments we used. The image was stamped in handsome hunter on shimmery paper... it really shines irl. It's popped up on foam dots. I used my Fiskars snowflake embossing punch for the edge. The "O" in JOY was sponged with sage shadow ink. It makes the silver snowflake brad stand out just a bit more.
supplies:
sage shadow card stock, wintergreen dsp, unknown shimmer card stock
walmart ribbon, mm brad, fiskars border punch,
