Last Wish, I Promise!

My attitude of gratitude today is for the glorious weather we have had this week.  Not too hot, not too cold....just right!  I sat on the front step today, and soaked up the warmth of the sunshine, and it felt great.

Just had to do one more card using the same cardstock and ink.  The accessories are changed up, but that's all.  This one uses the Northern Flurry embossing folder with Smooch Illuminate Top Coat accenting the flakes.
The shimmer is really subtle.  On the first card, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint was sponged on to give the glow.  This card was much simpler - just spritzed with Frost White Shimmer Paint made into a mist spray.  I love the way it looks like a fine snow falling, softening the image.
If you look closely, you can see the Smooch Top Coat on the snowflakes, too.  It is so easy to apply with its little pointed brush (like nail polish, only more control!).

  1. Seriously, this is the most gorgeous of all! Wow!

  2. Oh Cindy, you have really outdone yourself with this one!

    If I made a card like this, I'd have a hard time sleeping. . . I'd just want to stay up all night making it shine in the light and petting it and saying nice things to it. . .

  3. Truly, you have outdone yourself! You can keep on with this set and I'll keep on CASEing them!! :-) This is beautiful!
