Crazy in Love

Good Morning !! I am crazy in love with the Polar White Flower Soft. It is a different texture than the regular flower soft. Suzanne challenged us this week to use Flower Soft. I kinda went overboard. Join us for TIOT #37.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew Challenge - Decorate the inside of your card
Papertake Weekly Challenge - faking it -
Paper Blooms Challenge - Bling

I was trying to capture the texture and look of the new Polar White Flower Soft. It looks like real snow. Of course, I had to have more sparkle so I added a little glitter to the Flower Soft.

Before I tell you about the card, I want to tell you about the Bow Easy I purchased from SCACD. It is wonderful. This is the first bow I made with it, you can make a single loop, but I wanted a double loop. Suzanne, our DT leader, has a wonderful video on her blog on how to use it. It is really easy. Best of all, it is only $5.00.

The card is pretty simple because the DP is so busy. The image is a Serendipity Stamp from SCACD. The snowflakes on the DP are embossed and glitzy. The image is heat embossed and colored with Copics. The broom, pockets and star on the birdhouse are colored with Spica glitterpens. The balls and leaves are glossed and a little stickles on the scarf and hat band. The snow flakes are punched with two different MS punches with a rhinestone in the center.

The paper is so pretty I really didn't want to cover it up. If you click on the picture it will enlarge and you can see the tips of the snowflake. Again I used the MS punches. The snowflake was cut with my Cricut.

Please go check out the rest of the DT samples. They are amazing.

Thank you for stopping by. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Don't forget I will be posting blog candy Sept. 30th and draw on October 10th.
