Now, on to As You See It Challenges! We have a really fun Recipe Challenge for you to kick off 2020!! With a Recipe Challenge, you have to include all the elements in the recipe into your project. Here is the challenge banner:

And here is the card I made for the challenge:

  • I dug out my Frosted Frames Dies because of the snowflakes in the set before thinking that the day that this post would be published, they would be retired by a few hours already, so this is a farewell to Frosted Frames, I guess, because you can no longer purchase them, boo hoo! (Unless you come to my Mini Catalogue launch on January 18th and buy my retired set!!)
  • I used the Rare Blessings stamp set from the Annual Catalogue (which you can still get) for my inspirational sentiment) and embossed it in silver on a die cut panel of Basic Gray using one of the Frosted Frames dies.
  • The dry embossing and the silver elements were satisfied by my embossing a silver foil panel with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I love the effect that embossing folder gives with foil because it gives the impression of falling rain or snow.
  • Finally, I added several Rhinestone jewels to the sentiment and the snowflake center for some bling and to satisfy that element of the challenge.
  • The card base is Basic Gray, by the way. This is a fairly simple card, made much easier by die cutting all the elements from Sparkle Glimmer Paper backed with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (retired product that I'm hoarding!) so that you just have to pull of the backing and stick the shapes to the foil and not worry about messy liquid glue dulling your shiny surface.
Enjoy shopping in the new Jan/Jun Mini Catalogue today and start earning your Sale-A-Bration Rewards! They are awesome this year!

  1. What a truly stunning card Heather! A great example of how a few key elements can be combined to create an elegant, sparkly masterpiece. I love the subtle embossed foil layer - it adds a real touch of luxury. That is one lucky friend who will be receiving this beauty!

  2. Thanks, Joanne! I love the look that the Subtle embossing folder creates in foil! It reminds me of rain!z
