Snow or mostly white - Simply Create Too #99

Good morning! Today starts another challenge at the Simply Create Challenge Blog with the topic Snow or mostly white. Go check out the challenge and link up your creations!

I have to say that it took me some time to create this card. I think it is not easy to make a card that has mostly white colors in it. Well, I cheated a bit and used white and light blue but I think it works! :)

This was the perfect opportunity to use the snowflake die from the Create A Smile Snow Dance kit. And because I love, love, love shaker cards, I had to create one with this beautiful die. First, I adhered some acetate behind the window (which I, again, forgot at first and I had to remove the foam tape that I've already put down) and used a ton of foam tape to create a shaker poket. I filled it with clear irridescent sequins and clear beads. Behind the pocket, I adhered some of the white/light blue striped pattern paper from the Snow Dance kit. 

The last time I was in England I bought another card making magazine with some adorable images. The stamps are not good quality and I had to stamp a few to get a crisp image but they are just too cute. I colored the polar bear with Spectrum Noir markers (fur: Blender, IG1, IG2, IG4; scarf: IB1, BT3, ice skates: IG6, IG8) and adhered him with foam squares to the shaker panel.

Because I forgot to stamp the sentiment on the front panel before adhering it with foam tape to the background, I decided to use another stripe of white cardstock, emboss it with silver embossing powder on both sides and stamp the sentiment "Frohe Weihnachten" (Merry Christmas). I used Tumbled Glass Distress ink to stamp the sentiment because it had the perfect light blue shade to math the scarf of the polar bear.
