Frosty

One last post for today, Whew! I think this is the fourth card today!  My hubby, son and oldest grandson headed out hunting for the next 4 days.  Our state has a school break so that the teachers can join in on a statewide teacher’s gathering.

Have you ever purchased something and totally forgot you had it?  That’s what happened to me earlier when I was looking for some DP that I swore I had but couldn’t find it.  Instead, I found this gorgeous paperSilver Valley Blizzard from SEI along with some Halloween and Autumn papers (I just might need to do a few more cards now!)

Unfortunately this photo does not do this paper justice.  Depending on how you tilt the paper, it brings out different sheens and shimmers.  I did get a chance to play with a few of my new Spellbinder edgeabilites to make the border.  I topped the border with a silver fiber ribbon leftover from last Christmas and dotted the centers of the flowers with rhinestones.

I didn’t have any silver cardstock so I thought I’d try to make my own.  I diecut a large Spellbinder Ironwork Motif using heavy cardstock and brushed it with Versamark.  I then sprinkled on silver embossing powder and heat set it.  I did the Versamark and embossing powder two more times and on the last heating I quickly pressed in a rubber stamp sentiment firmly, let  it cool a few seconds and then gently  peeled off the stamp leaving the sentiment impression in the melted embossing powder.

I’m glad you stopped by and hopefully this weekend I’ll get a chance to make a few more cards to share with you!  Dee
