JUST US GIRLS #371 - Photo Week

Hello and welcome crafty friends! Vicki is your hostess for Photo Week at JUST US GIRLS, and she's picked this fun photo for you to be inspired by! I realized when starting to make my card that I must have used up the last of my silver foil paper some time ago, and never replenished it. So it was purple foil and silver glitter papers for me.

 And the inside:

I die cut the snowflake frame out of the purple foil 3 times, then traced the frame onto the silver glitter paper and fussy cut. I used an embossing folder on the card front, then stamped the sentiment in silver ink, and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. The inside sentiment was stamped, and I went over the edges of the panel with the silver ink before adhering. 

I hope you find some time to play along with our photo challenge this week at Just Us Girls! We'd love to see your take on the picture! For more inspiration, please visit the blogs of my teammates and our Guest Designer, Cecile, and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for visiting!

  1. What a pretty card, love the purple and silver pairing. awesome job.

  2. Glad you ran out of silver because the purple looks AWESOME! I am jealous you got it to photograph as purple too :)

  3. I love the silver backgrounds for those pretty purple snowflakes. I think this combination stands out more than the other way around.

  4. I tried 2x this morning to make something I liked for this photo inspiration... fails. But you did it! So did the DT! Pretty card!

  5. Such a glittery delight. I love this colour combo and thanks for joining us at Time Out

  6. The purple foil is fabulous against that glittery silver, Chris ... so pretty! Thanks for joining us again over at Time Out! Anita :)

  8. Oooh, what a great design! Love those layered snowflake panels and LOVE all the sparkle and shine!

  9. Those dies were a perfect choice for the challenge, Chris. Whether in silver or purple, they're beautiful.

  10. This is just spectacular. I love the simplicity of it with all that sparkle and shine. Also love how you have used the same die 3 times but positioned them differently each time. And then the rounded corners are the perfect final touch. Just beautiful!

  11. This is just a gorgeous interpretation of the photo! Wow!

  12. So sparkly and gorgeous! I love your purple foil snowflake blocks against the silver glitter. The subtle embossed background was a perfect choice to pair with the snowflakes.

  13. Beautiful! Love the glittery pink and silver!
