Color Dare #65 with an Atlantic Hearts Sketch #25

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare post! This is a weekly challenge blog featuring Close To My Heart colors but you can substitute similar colors if needed. This week we are featuring the monochromatic colors of Crystal Blue and Twilight. (You may also combine them with neutrals such as white, black, colonial white and other colors from the Close To My Heart Basics color palette).


 When I need inspiration to make a card I often check out the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog as I did this week. Instead of gears I used Art Philosophy cut snowflakes from the challenge colors--page 22 layer shift cut at 1.25", 1.5" and 1.34". The stripes were made with strips of Silver Shimmer Trim. The greeting is from Frosted Cardmaking Kit. The final touches were made by placing dots of Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel in the snowflake points and centers and popping up the greeting with 3D Foam Tape.

  3. What a great looking card. I like how you used different sizes of the snowflakes. I have to remember that not everything has to be cut out the same size, lol.

  9. This card is a beauty! The challenge colours work so well for snowflakes, and the shimmer trim and glitz just add to the delicate wintry effect. (not quite ready for the real thing yet, however...)
