Hello … bonjour! We’re mid way through our delicious challenge over at Time Out, where this fortnight we’re ‘Inspired By Words’ … our words are ‘snowflakes are winter’s butterflies’. This week I’ve gone all cool and frosty …
,The snowflake panel is one I embossed at the Lake House last year … think it’s Bev‘s (thanks my friend!) … maybe it’s from Stampin Up … not sure of either! It’s trimmed down, stamped with a sentiment from Penny Black and a SSS Christmas star, I added some gems to the centres and adhered the panel to the card base that’d been sponged with silver ink round the edges … it’s rather shimmery and sparkly IRL!
How would you like to play along with us? You can use any or all of the words in our phrase … just let your imagination wander. There’s plenty of inspiration over at the Time Out blog … from our talented Guest Designer, Ashwini, and from our own wonderful Design Team … definitely worth checking out! Hope to see you in the gallery!
I’m joining in with …

Is this ever subtle and gorgeous!! Love this to bits, Anita! So glad that you join the fun over Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Let it Snow” Challenge!
Absolutely beautiful Anita. Love the embossing with the touch of gray stamping.
Stunning! Love how all the whiteness keeps it so CAS. Thanks for sharing at AAA Cards.
And for sharing at Uniko too!
Love this embossed, white snowflake beauty with a touch of silver! Clean and festive!
What a gorgeous embossed image! The subtle sparkle, and wonderful sentiment give just the right amount of Christmas decoration, Anita … and of course that ‘star of wonder’ … so perfect!
Had to go check the stash to see if indeed it was mine, and from SU. You were correct on both counts dear friend. What a memory!! What a beautiful card, too! The silver base highlights your focal panel perfectly! LOVE the Christ Star tucked at the bottom of the snowflakes, and the red (heart) bling in its center. Lovely, lovely Christmas card!!! Miss you every day….xoxo
Your embossed snowflakes are just beautiful, Anita! I love how you placed the Christmas Star and sentiment, too! Such a lovely color palette and stunning card!
So pretty and elegant. I like the grey sentiment, contributes to the elegance, rather than the usual bold black that I normally use.
This is lovely Anita – lots of white and just a hint of silver. Love the sentiment as well.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE white on white cards. This one is a killer-diller. Just stunningly gorgeous. WOWZERS!
This is so beautiful! I love it! xxx
Stunning simplicity! Elegant and ethereal! Tantalizing texture! Subtle serene silver sentiment. Brilliantly bedazzled!
GORGEOUS card Anita!
This is stunning, Anita! It has everything a Christmas card should have and it’s a perfectly executed design! I love it! And I miss you! Hope your holiday preps are going well. I’m so far behind that I just decided today not to stress about the fact that some folks will be getting my cards after Christmas! Hugs, Darnell
Beautiful card Anita. Love the dimension from your embossed snowflakes. The silver sentiment and gems on the snowflakes add lots of shine and sparkle. Thanks for playing along at ATCAS. xx
Beautiful embossed panel! I also love that sentiment!!!
p.s. Yes, I finally did it!
Oh this is CAS perfection Anita – that EB would be perfect for a heap of quick cards…might put it on that wish list of mine!
Elegant, subtle and CAS – a perfect combination . Beautiful! Thanks for joining us at AAA Cards – Jenny 🙂
The embossed white over the silver panel is so elegant, Anita. Then you added the star and took it to extraordinary.
Loving your striking sparkle and shine here Anita. wonderful floaty snowflakes, perfect Christmas card with a subtle dimension too. Thanks for sharing and playing along in our birthday challenge at ATCAS and also for linking up at Uniko and AAA Cards.
Absolutely stunning! I love the embossed snowflakes, the touch of bling and the sweet verse. Thanks so much for playing along with our Christmas challenge at Uniko this month!
absolutely gorgeous… crisp, clean and wonderful!!
Love your cool and frosty winter delight , crisp and CAS and beautifully done.
This is peaceful and lovely!! The tiny pop of color is so pretty!
Now, this is one elegant and sophisticated card. Love those textured snowflakes and just the bit of bling.
Gorgeous and subtle. The snowflake cluster is beautiful. So much wonderful dimension. So glad you joined us at ATCAS this week
Love this white CAS so much. The embossing looks great with the sparkle of the tiny rhinestone center embellishments you’ve added – just the right touch of some bling. Also looks very pretty against the gleam of the silvery background c/s. TFS & have a great weekend.
I just adore scrawly, scrolly script and this card sure delivers on the elegance. All the glitz and glam is beyond lovely.
This embossed white with the silver is so peaceful and gorgeous , Anita! Just enough bling to make it shine, well done again !
Just gorgeous Anita – I just love the combination of white and silver – and that embossing is beautiful – especially accented with that little bit of sparkle! Thanks for linking up at AAA too! Jill
Such a beautiful card! Love the monochrome colours and all the elegance it has! Enjoy your sunday!
Oh this is beautiful! I love the embossing on here, so soft and pretty!
Anita…I am simply speechless! This is just so beautiful and so elegant too! I love all that white and all the sparkle. Hope you are doing well and miss you lots!
Fantastic embossing and I love that sentiment font!
White and silver – so elegant! And that sentiment is one of my favourites!
Beautiful card Anita, I love the white on white!
C’est beau, c’est pur, c’est tout simplement magnifique Anita!!
So beautiful, Anita! I love those embossed snowflakes. And the white and silver is such a perfect pair for the mood of this card. I love the shimmer of the silver and can image just how stunning it is IRL as I recently shimmered up a snowflake of mine in the same way. 🙂
What an elegant design, love the neutral colour palette and silver sentiment!
A most exquisite, elegant snowflake card, Anita! That embossing folder is divine! Stunning in its simplicity!
Love the embossed snowflakes, so much detail yet with the white on white with hint of silver & red it still has CAS about it! Thanks so much for joining in on the Uniko Challenge & my apologies for stopping by so late to comment. Hugs Bev x
