Easel card with snow flakes!

Hi all, welcome to a new Friday Mashup challenge, this week we are asking you to create something just a little different.

 So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project featuring "Snowflakes".
  2. Or Make an "Easel Card".  
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create an "Easel Card featuring Snowflakes".
*For Directions on how to make an Easel Card Click Here *

I've gone for the mashup this week and dragged out snowflakes from the Snow Swirled stamp set, one of my alltime favourite Stampin' Up! sets.  I have to say I was in my 40s before I actually saw real snow and it was quite magical!  Living in the tropics, we don't get much snow up this way...LOL

I've also used non traditional colours for a Christmas card and use the new Island Indigo and Perfect Plum with Whisper White, Silver metallic CS and silver embossing powder.  I love this combination together.

Here's the card closed (above), yes it does open from the left instead of the right!  and below, the card opened I have added some tiny rhinestones that I had in my stash, they have that ab coating and have a purpleish glow in certain light.  They are my tree decorations along with some clear rhinestones.

I really love the way this card came together.  In the final pic below you can see the silver embossed snowflakes more clearly

 If you haven't been to the Friday Mashup Challenge Blog yet, hop on over there to check out the fabulous cards that the DT girls have created for your inspiration.

    Wow, you didnt see snow until your 40's? I cant even imagine! I love snow so much, I cant live without it! My husband was 22 when he got his first real taste of snow--we were in the military in CA and I brought him home to meet my parents and we had a big snowstorm. He was a like a big kid, out there playing, LOL.
