White on White - Winter Sparkle Card - Festive Flurry

What do you think of this White on White Winter Sparkle card I made this weekend using the cardabilities sketch #90 and lots (and lots!) of Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder?! This was a beautiful sketch to work with. I wanted to use the Festive Flurry stamp set and Festive Flurry Framelits to create a wintery card.

The Festive Flurry bundle is a carryover item from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, which means that you can still order the stamp set and the framelits - hurray! That makes me so glad because it's looking like we have lots of winter left around here, so I'll be getting lots of use out of this set!

I started with a Whisper White base and then cut a card front from Watercolor Paper. I stamped several snowflakes from the Festive Flurry set in Whisper White ink on this paper and then Heat Embossed it with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. The next layer is Whisper White cardstock that I stamped the En Francais background stamp in Whisper White Craft Ink. I Heat Embossed this layer with White Embossing Powder. Two of the staggered layers are Whisper White cardstock, stamped with snowflakes in Whisper White Craft Ink and Heat Embossed with Iridescent Ice EP. The square in between those layers is Whisper White cardstock which is texture embossed in the Big Shot with the Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The snowflake is the second largest snowflake from Festive Flurry stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and Heat Embossed with Iridescent Ice EP. Then I die cut with the matching snowflake Framelit and the smallest snowflake framelit at the same time. Die cutting these at the same time makes it easy to center the smaller snowflake inside the larger one, and it's one less Big Shot step as well. The Magnetic Platform is really helpful when die cutting these stamped images! I finished with a banner sentiment, Thank You, stamped in Silver Encore ink and Heat Embossed in Silver EP.
