Hi friends! It's finally Friday and that means it's time for another Viva la Verve! sketch. Woohoo! This week's hostess is Tosh. I hope you'll play along with us! For my sample, I broke out the new Frosty Snowflakes Die Set that coordinates with Frosty Flakes and Christmas in the Air. I wanted a modern, wintery feel, so chose a palette of pool party, black and silver. I just love this combo!
The Making Of:
I started by cutting the three snowflakes with the Frosty Snowflakes Die Set. I then stamped the snowflakes from Frosty Flakes in the centers with Pool Party ink. I chose to use the flakes that were a size smaller than each die to have a nice white border all around, then inked the edges lightly with Pool Party ink. The Pool Party layers are all stamped randomly with the same snowflakes, then it was just a matter of adding some die cuts, punched borders, ribbon and some pearl accents for fun. The sentiment flag is stamped with the Holiday Joy sentiment from Holiday Phrases.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a fabulous weekend!
