Flurry of Wishes Card No. 3

Hello, Crafters.

I didn't have any success with updating my videos page yesterday. Hubby has agreed to look into it for me today, so I'm in with a very good chance of a solution.

This month I have been amazingly slow in sending out my Thank You gifts to my August online customers - I'm ashamed to say that I posted them yesterday.

I know it's been an exceptionally busy month for me but I really should have prioritised this. Lesson learned! I now have a rule that they must be posted by the 7th day of the following month. Now that I've told you about it, I have to do it!

I think yesterday's challenge card is the exception that proves the rule! We're always told embellishments should be in odd numbers but I have used four snowflakes and I think it works.

Like most of my cards, this one was like Topsy..................it just grew and I'm pleased with the finished effect, albeit rather crowded in comparison to most of my cards.

What do you think? Should I have left one snowflake off? Does it look too crowded? 

I started this card with a base of Whisper White Card Stock, followed by a layer of Lost Lagoon Card Stock and a top layer of the stripe design paper from the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper.

Using Lost Lagoon Ink and Whisper White Card Stock, I stamped the largest snowflake from the Flurry of Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set, twice.

I punched them both out using the Flower Medallion Punch. Then I stamped one medium and three small snowflakes and punched them all out using the Snow Flurry Punch.

I also punched out three medium and one small snowflake from Lost Lagoon Card Stock, using the Snow Flurry Punch. I adhered the snowflakes together using Glue Dots and then adhered them to the card base using Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from Flurry of Wishes using Lost Lagoon Ink on Whisper White Card Stock. I die cut it out using the number five die from the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies. Using Tombow, I adhered it onto a piece of Lost Lagoon Card Stock that I had die-cut using number 6 die.

I then adhered it to the card using Dimensionals. Using my Two-way Glue Pen, I very carefully painted the exposed Lost Lagoon Card Stock showing around the sentiment and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.

I also used Dazzling diamonds to highlight areas on the snowflakes and put a rhinestone in the centre of each. (It looks like I photographed this card before adhering the rhinestones!) Please let me have your feedback about three or four snowflakes for this card.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

JanB.
