Festive Friday Challenge

So, I managed to carve out some time this morning to make a card for the current Festive Friday challenge.  I've been so busy preparing for my son's birthday party this weekend that I haven't had much time to make any cards.  This week their inspiration photo was very silver and gold.

Just a touch of a cranberry colour there too.  I decided to use these colors and focus on the snowflake (like the one on the ornament) for my card.

I used some washi tape I've had for some time but never used (I think it's from K & Company).  As my blogger friend, Darnell (of djkardkreations), would say I've used some NBUS here.  "Never-Before-Used-Schtuff".  Got lots of that!  LOL.  Anyway, I used the Hero Arts dotted snowflake stamp and stamped in dove gray (StazOn), Razzleberry (SU!) and gold (Color Box). I embossed the gold as well to make it stand out more.  Now my washi tape was originally too wide for my taste so I trimmed it down some.  As for the rest of the card it came about because I messed up stamping my sentiment(by Hero Arts, Joy to All set).  I had to fussy cut around the snowflakes to get rid of my boo-boo and inserted a piece of silver paper topped off by a white panel that I stamped my sentiment on. This time not messing it up.  Not quite as CAS as originally intended but I still like it.  :-)

Anyway, that's it for today.  Thanks for visiting and have a great day!


  1. Hey!!

    I linked you up.... Only thing is I had to use my email, but I don't think that's a big deal. You're in there now!

    Love the snowflakes, and way to go breaking out the Washi... I love using it, but it also took me awhile to take the plunge. Good to see you with us again Kim!

    1. Thanks Meredith! I'm using the washi more and more these days. It's great stuff! Glad to be back at playing along at FF! My goal is to participate in all of the challenges this year. :-)

  2. Gorgeous - that delicate, lacy snowflake is just beautiful! Love the elegant feel of this and the pop of red! So glad you joined us at Festive Friday!

  3. Oh beautiful card! Those snowflakes are so pretty and I too love the washi tape along the side! Lovely work!! Thanks so much for joining us at Festive Friday! :)

  4. I love those snowflakes and the washi tape! The pop of red is perfect.

  5. Gorgeous, Kim! Love the elegant washi...the delicate flakes, and the pop of burgundy (is that how you spell it??? Maybe I should stick with 'razzleberry';). Thanks, my dear, for playing along again!

  6. I'm so glad you got your card linked up so we could all see it--it's absolutely beautiful, Kim! The shiny snowflakes are so, so pretty, and I love the pop of color you added, too. Just gorgeous! Thanks for playing along with Festive Friday this week!
