I began by colouring my card blank with Distress Inks Broken China, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire. Then I used some snowflake stamps to Watermark the card as well as flicking small drops of water to get little blob marks. This is my favourite technique, if you haven't tried it pop over to Technique Time Tuesday and check out the fab tutorial.
I die cut some snowflakes using Spellbinders Create A Flake 1 and 2010 Snowflake Pendant from white pearl thick paper. The icicle border is also cut from the same paper and stuck on the back of a silver pearl strip that runs across the card. It was at this point I wish I hadn't chosen to use a card with scalloped edges!
The centre panel is the same white pearl paper stamped with a greeting from Katy Sue Designs and embossed in a dark blue powder from Personnel Impressions. It's stuck on a very dark blue card mounted onto the card with foam pads. In each corner is a small silver peel off snowflake.
