My parents anniversary is coming up at the end of January and I wanted to make a special “frosty” card that is both whimsical and beautiful.  When you have a wedding January in Canada you are going to get a snow themed card!!

I took a different direction with the colors, staying with pastels to keep it soft and ethereal.   I used lots of layers here with die-cut paper, chipboard, and “snow” texture to create a winter wonderland type of card.

I added lots of Creative Embellishments “Chipboard Snowflakes” shapes painted in light blue and placed them around the card, tucked in here and there.

I repeated the same technique of painting the CE “Wish” word from the “Dream” word set in light blue, then after everything was glued down and dried I added a ton of “Snowtex” texture medium to give it this frosty feeling all over.  Adding globs of in in the corners, on each of the chipboard pieces trying to catch the corners and edges for the “snow” to rest on.

Nothing is better than a handmade card for those that you love, it means so much more then just going to a store and buying one!!  So happy anniversary to my parents, 46 years and going strong!!
