Frosted Windowpanes



For two challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers - Free for All "Icing on the Cake" (to have something on the card that is frosted) and Mixability "Snow".

I started with a Tim Holtz brick embossing folder, then used shimmer embossing paste and a light sprinkle of ice blue glitter through the Falling Snow stencil (it's hard to see it in the photo).

I took a piece of scrap of clear plastic acetate that has molded lines on it (it held dishwasher detergent cubes!) and cut a square of it and edged the ridges with Sparkle Texture Effect. And added the Texture Effect along the bottom edge for a build-up of snow.

I framed the window with thin strips of fun foam and a die cut square frame. Behind the window is a scrap of dp to represent interior curtains or wall paper.

And I added the perfect sentiment for the Free for All challenge - "frosted windowpanes" - heat embossed in Irridescent Ice.

It's my first card for next Christmas's stash and for the Christmas Card Challenge on SCS - a great way to motivate you to work on Christmas cards all year!
