LLLC - It's Cold Outside...

Happy "Hump Day" everyone!

This week, the La-La Land Crafts Wednesday die cut team is working with the theme, "It's Cold Outside."  I chose to illustrate the theme with frosty winter colors...white, pale ice blue, and silver...with a touch of yellow and gold for good measure. It's very sparkly, and as usual, hard to show that feature in a flat photograph ...

The sides of the front are "see-through," with the scalloped Lattice Border Die highlighted with tiny clear crystals up both sides...

Instead of patterned paper on the center front, I embossed the area with Shabby Blue Frantage embossing powder. It's a beautiful mix of white and gold embossing powders, with pale blue extra fine powder that all melts together to give a chilly, wintery-looking surface with sparkle and texture. I cut apart the small snowflakes on the Snowflake Banner die, and glittered each one with clear coarse glitter and touched up with Silver Stickles. The little berries on the  Berry Flourish stems were also coated with Silver Stickles...

The two large centerpiece flowers are made with the Pretty Poinsettia dies...they're coated with Star Dust Stickles...
