I am now showing you the light blue cardstock cards. For whatever reason, this paper gave me a hard time in wanting to cut cleanly. I do not recall what brand it was, just something I've had in my stash for a while.
Click on any photo to enlarge it to see it better.
I thought it may be interesting to try a tone on tone/ White on White card. I used the shimmer blue as a shadow for the sentiment and as the backgroud snowflake. I like the effect! I only made one of these however.
Finally, I decided to be very "different" and try a pink snowflake card! I used a lovely pinkish/rose colored paper that has the same shimmer as the dark blue card I made. I love the way it looks but wasn't sure what many other people would think so I only made a couple of these! My daughter in law and my oldest granddaughter (who is 2 1/2) LOVE pink so one of these is heading their way for Christmas!
Do you like cards/decorations that are not "traditional"? Let me know your thoughts!
