Be warned, I’m going to be featuring more Christmas cards in the next few weeks. Be assured, I will definitely give Thanksgiving its due but I just love all the new stamp sets and accessories. With that said,  Flurry of Wishes is actually a hold over from last year and a beautiful set it is.

This card was really inspired by this weeks challenge over at Global Design Project. This was a CASE the Designer project and I used the repeated objects as my inspiration. Make sure to hop on over there to see all the great projects.

Design Notes for Flurry of Wishes Card:

Let’s just say that I had a good time with heat embossing! I was practicing and tried white snowflakes, then silver. They were both nice. Then I combined a little Silver Embossing Powder with some White Embossing Powder and I thought it was interesting! What do you think? After embossing the snowflakes, I still thought it needed something. So I added some Faceted Gems to the larger snowflakes and some Glitter Enamel Dots to the small ones. While I was heat embossing, I used White Embossing Powder for the sentiment.

When you use vellum, as I did on this card, you need to be careful about where you add the adhesive. It will show on the other side. Unsightly! So, that was an additional reason to add the Gems and Dots. That gave me some places to hide adhesive. I used Glue Dots.

For each place where there is a Gem, Dot or Dimensional, I added a Glue Dot.
