The card that took me 3 hours!

This card seriously took me three hours to complete. It shouldn't have, but I need to get back into the swing of things. I do love how it turned out though.

My first step was to die cut the snowflake background using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Flurries die set out of glitter card stock. Then I attached it to a soft blue background paper. I used the Stampin' Up! Frosty Friends stamp and some subtle coloring and glitter for my main image, along with the 'Let it Snow' stamp from the Spellbinders Large Fancy Holiday Sentiments set.

Then came the part that took me so darn long. I couldn't figure out how I wanted to finish off the front. After many failed attempts, I ended up die cutting the snowflakes again and cutting out the border to layer on top of my original die cut (so a rectangle edging all the way around), and then I used one of the My Favorite Things Stitched Snowdrifts dies to cut a partial "snowy" border for the bottom, and added a single snowflake from the Spellbinders set to finish. I'm not sure I'm describing that right but I think the pictures show it pretty well ;)

I do love this card...just don't love spending 3 hours creating one!
