Wintery Blue

The Outlines DT is showing off cards with the color theme of "Feeling BLUE" today! You can play along with us each week for a chance to win a gift certificate, find all the details on the Outlines Blog. Check out what BLUE creations the ladies came up with this week:

 With the theme of BLUE for the challenge today, I went with a soft wintery blue. I thought this Flower Medallion image might make a fun faux snowflake. I stamped the "snowflake" twice on blue pattern paper from Bo Bunny's Welcome Home 6x6 paper pad. I cut the layers out and then hand cut a white on both of them. I used Spellbinder's Postage Nesties for one of the layers and also the Grand Scallop Squares for the card base.
I used my Japanese Screw Punch to add holes around the Postage Nestie. I used a large craft needle and threaded bakers twine around the layers. After layering the medallions with foam tape I added a sparkly button topped with a little twine bow in the center to of the card, under the button I added a little die cut white snowflake. It needed just a little more sparkle so a few Swarovski Clear Crystals around the snowflake points took care of that.
