Winter Wonderland

Welcome back to another challenge at the Creative Knockouts.  This week the theme is Winter Wonderland.

I used Christmas Post from All Dressed Up colored with Copics for my card.  This is the only way I want to see snowflakes, to be honest!  The snowflake paper is by Nitwit Collections and came from the gorgeous Winter Wishes bundle.  This is one of my favorite papers to use for winter themed cards.  The best part is it's digital so I can never use it up!!  The blue and silver papers have a metallic shimmer that I think makes for a great wintery effect.  The stamp was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo.  The garland, icicles and notebook page are all cut files as well.  I have had the snowflakes around the sentiment for ages.  I made a bunch of them for Christmas cards one year.  Vellum by itself was too transparent, so I finally came up with these.  I made them by crumpling a piece of aluminum foil and flattening it out again.  Then I ran a piece of card stock vellum through my Xyron and stuck it to the foil.  I ran the entire piece through the Xyron to make it self-adhesive and punched the snowflakes from the stack.  The foil makes the vellum opaque, and the wrinkles give a bit of a frosty effect.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.  I think it is from their Warren collection, but it is retired now.  I won a package of goodies from Enfys at Going Buggy, and this sentiment was in that package.
