I really didn't know how to start off my card for this challenge. The ball started rolling when I found an ice skater digi image from my files (can't remember from which shop or company). It's been one of those freebies that I randomly saved from one of the sites I found last year. I had this image paper pieced with silver glitter glue as accents. Then I searched for Christmas papers thinking that I could have it as background paper but instead I found some left over Nikki Sivils Christmas cut-outs which were from previous year's collection. Thus, I decided to make use of plain non-traditional colored cardstock for card and base paper - gray and blue. Luckily my embossing folders arrived and had made up my mind on testing them. Thus the embossed blue background paper inside and at front of my card. I just dabbed the tube of my white acrylic paint on the embossed dots to look like snow. Doesn't it look great?
Anyway, I executed what I had in mind and finished off the front with a pink ribbon and bow with silver trimmings created courtesy of Bow Easy. The card's inside is further decorated with the same pink ribbon, Nikki Sivils holly cut-out on top, and finished off with stitched gray hearts with the help of a SewEasy Piercer set against pink cardstock and then fussy cut.
