PPA21 - Winter Wonderland


Just under the wire but I made it!  Like everyone else, this time of year tends to take over and I haven't had a chance to post a card for my favorite challenge!  The design team at Pals Paper Arts asked for cards & projects with a winter wonderland theme for PPA21 and with the help of the always handsome Dasher stamp, I think we deliver!  My base is basic grey and the main panel is night of navy run through a holiday '09 cuttlebug folder.  I received the CB folder as a gift and I don't know the name--sorry!  It looks like swirling snow, yes?  Dasher is embossed in white and a bit of dazzling diamonds applied with a glue pen add the perfect amount shimmer to his splendid antlers!  The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes is stamped in Encore metallic silver and mounted on a modern lable punch from the brushed silver cardstock.  SU's brushed silver CS is so lucious--just like brushed metal and a perfect match to the metallic silver ink.  It's finished off with some elegant white organza ribbon.  I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday and wish you the best in the new year.  Cheers!

Supplies:
stamps: dasher, teeny tiny wishes
ink: craft whisper white, encore metallic silver
paper: basic grey, whisper white, night of navy CS
xtras: CB EB folder holiday '09, white EB powder, MS glue pen, dazzling diamonds, modern label and word window punch, organza ribbon white

I agree with you...Dasher is always handsome! Beautiful card! The embossing does remind me of swirling snow. I am so glad that you were able to play @ PPA this week!

This is gorgeous. I love how the embossed swirls coordinate with the swirly reindeer horns!

The white embossed Dasher is stunning, as is that CB'd background!
