AAA cards challenge #107: chilled, with video

This fortnight the theme of AAA cards challenges is: chilled. Our sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays. And you could win a $25 dollar gift certificate.

I am using their set Must love snowflakes, sadly it's discontinued, but now they have snowy sayings and bring on the snowflakes as well as some snowflakes dies.

For the card I cut a kraft base into a panel. I didn't realize it, but it turns out it's not exactly A5 sized...should have measured!

I started by stamping the thank you with Simon  Says Stamp's you  matter set in embossing ink, and then used the Wow metallic silver regular to emboss the sentiment.

Then I placed all the snowflakes from CAS-ual Friday's must love snowflakes on acryllic blocks. I stamped a variety of sizes and colors using Memento inks (gray flannel and Paris dusk and also embossing ink)

The little star is from Simon Says Stamps (birthday balloons) and I used it as an embellishment instead of rhinestones or alike.

Adhered the panel to a cardbase with tape runner and cleaned up the size difference.
