Have you ever taken a walk out in the snow on a cold evening and as you're walking along you can see the snow shimmering everywhere you look when the light hits it just right? I sure have and that's what inspired this card...well that and the fact that we've had more snow here in Michigan than we know what to do with right now! lol We're in for a break I think, but I'm not ready for the rain and sloppy mess that we might have the next few days. Yup, give me a good snow storm over rain and mud when it's cold out! So this week at the Friday Mashup Avery has challenged us to do a couple of things...
Create a project using "a Metal Embellishment (Staple, Brad, Grommet etc.)".
Create a project using "Weather as your Inspiration"
think storms, Clouds, Rain, Sun, Warm Sandy Beaches.
or Mash it Up! and create a "Weather inspired project with a Metal Embellishment".
Now you can see why I made a card with snow...the weather was definitely my inspiration! I added a few retired brads that I had stashed away to use as my metal embellishment.
Lots of great cards over at the Friday Mashup this week. Check them out HERE and play along when you get a chance.
I'm actually adding a second card to this post also since I was kind of working on both cards at the same time. Believe it or not I had this picture stashed away to use another time. I didn't like how it had turned out when I originally made it, so I did a little more work on it until I was happy with what I had. :) Wish I had taken a pic of it before I started working on it again so you could have seen the difference. Too late now though!
I hope you've enjoyed my shimmery snow cards. :)
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
Supplies used on these cards:
retired brads & sticky notes
