Snowflake Christmas - Technostamper 238

I tried a different technique for this card for the Technostamper challenge here
I'll describe it below.


The base of the card is Midnight Muse, layered with Whisper White card stock embossed with the Northern Flurries folder.  The snowflakes on it were lightly sponged with Midnight Muse ink.
The focal image panel was first painted with Frost White shimmer paint, and then sponged with 3 different colors of blue.  From the bottom to the top they are: Baja breeze, Marina Mist and Midnight Muse.  This panel was matted with Midnight Muse card stock.
Then 10 small snowflakes were die cut using the Snow Flurry die and silver glitter paper.  The snowflakes were paired up and a blue glimmer brad was inserted in the middle of each one.  Because 5 snowflakes would not fit in a straight line down the panel, they were off set from each other.
A scalloped silver glitter strip was attached to the left side of the Midnight Muse mat.

Stamps: Joyous Celebration
Inks: Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Midnight Muse
Papers: Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Silver glitter
Accessories: Northern Flurries die, Snow Flurry die, Scallop border punch, 1" circle punch, 1 1/4" scallop circle die, glimmer brad, Frost White shimmer paint
