I made this last night and then heard the weather forecast saying we may get more snow by the end of the week. I hope I haven't tempted fate.
The snowflake wreath was an embellishment I found on one of the Christmas cards I was recycling the original design just had it on a silver background and it looked a bit lost.
I managed to remove it from it's original backing but damaged one of the snowflakes in the process, as it is quite delicate. I decided that it would look perfect on this bright blue glitter card from my stash as I had a piece left over from making an an Art Deco card for my sister-in-laws birthday.
I wrapped the ribbon on the wreath over the top of the glitter card and decided that the wreath looked more effective off centred. To balance the card I wrapped a lovely satin edged organza ribbon I had picked up from a haberdashery store near my dad's earlier this week. It was in their bargain bundle bin and works out at around 10p a metre. I bought it with a view to using it on Wedding cards but it worked really well on here.
I then matted the panel on silver mirror card before adding to a 6x6 card blank.
To cover the damaged snowflake I added one cut from silver mirror card and glittered with stickles. I added another die cut snowflake to the ribbon bow and the sentiment is recycled from a pre-loved card.
I finished off with little flat backed glitter pearls and the silver wire twists. The wire twists are actually cut from one of those stainless steel pan scourers I picked up a pack of 4 for 49p in a local bargain store and they will last me for years to come but they add a finishing touch to the card.
