SNOW Sparkler

I reside in Florida but remember those frosty winter days in Montreal ,Canada so creating a snow themed  card came easy. I used  my Art Philosophy cartridge (pg. 22) for the gorgeous snowflake design and the tree was stamped in silver and covered in silver glitter ( I don't have the Glitter Ritz brand). The branches were partially covered with sparkly tuille netting that I cut in teeny squares and hot glued on. I also added touches of "White Ice "pearls by Viva (pens) . The tiny mirrors on the bottom (Michael's) and the mirrored trim, gave it just the right glistening effect.
The fabulous paper was from Scrapbucks ...what a DEAL those were!!! It's hard to tell, but they are shiny silver and the added layer is also shiny mylar silver. The  step up card  was created with a matching envelope with a silver snowflake on the back for closure.
