Hello and good morning crafty peeps. It's a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH. This week it's all about snow: snowmen, snowflakes, snow covered hills. You get my drift. (See what I just did there?) Here's my card:

 Here is the inside:

I've used this snowflake frame only once before. I really need to use it more, as it's gorgeous! I didn't want to cover it up so I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with a glittery embossing powder onto vellum. It's supposed to lay flat but, with my crack card making skillz, it's kind of wavy. (I've since fixed it, but was too lazy to retake a picture. wink)

Now it's your turn. You know you have snowflake/snowmen stamps and dies. Break those puppies out and create something with them, and then link up at Shopping Our Stash so we can see it! Please do check out what my teammies made and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!

  4. Your frame is gorgeous and the color palette for this card is outstanding! Love the interior, too! Nicely done, Chris!

  5. Love it, the white and blue and pop of red...with the vellum...just awesome!

  6. Ah yes, vellum + heat embossing tends to equal wavy panels. (Did one myself just this morning!) And yes, you really should use that frame more, because WOW! Beautiful card.

  7. Beautiful card, Chris! I love the sparkly centers in your pretty snowflakes! Such soft colors with a gorgeous splash of red! hugs, de {Creative Smiles}

  8. I believe I do get your drift... haha! Beautiful snowy card, my friend! Love that snowflake frame die cut. It really is too pretty to cover up, so your vellum sentiment strip is absolutely perfect!

  9. Had to stop by to tell you that I love your card...it's so elegant! Happy Holidays to you!
