Silver Serene Snowflakes

Who doesn't love Silver Snowflakes?  This was another card from last  year's class, and was one of my favorites!
Do you know how to make a paper frame?  I will have to show you how, but I don't have pictures of one just yet...but it is a great way to add layers, without using too much paper (it keeps your card from getting too heavy, but does add a little time)
This card base is Night of Navy, and so is the Satin Ribbon.  The white is our gorgeous Shimmer White cardstock, and has a beautiful subtle sparkle to it.  Well worth the money, but also worth conserving!
To make the snowflake background, I used our Shimmer Paints (Platinum).  I sponged the paint onto the stamps then stamped the background, leaving the bottom right corner blank for the greeting.  The inside panel with the layered snowflake was where the frame idea comes in.  I first stamped the largest snowflake (Serene Snowflakes stamp set) onto a square of Shimmer White cs.  I then punched out the center of the snowflake with the 1 1/4" square punch.  For the Night of Navy layers, I punched a 1 3/8" square.  This gives you enough to cover the hole in the shimmer white layer...
Simple and elegant, this would be beautiful in deep purple (like Concord Crush), black or gray...
