Winter Wishes

 I was cruising around the internet, looking for inspiration and I went to the Lindy's Gang website.  I am sure that Lindy's has been in the craft business as long as I have been crafting and their products are so innovative that many have tried to copy them, but in my opinion there is nothing as good as the original.  I saw the January challenge on the Lindy's blog and I immediately knew I had to get out my goodies and take part in it.  So here is my card:



What I Used to make my Card:
Square White Card Base
White Cardstock
White Pearl Cardstock
Lindy's Gang Glitz Spritz in Steel Shimmer {discontinued but this would work}
Lindy's Gang Starburst in Tainted Teal
Lindy's Gang Magical Shaker in Oom Pah Pah Pink
Lindy's Gang Embossing Powder in Magic Moon Pearls
Sizzix/Tim Holtz Paper Snowflakes, Mini, #661599
Penny Black Wintertime Wishes Die, #51-078
Hand Held Circle Paper Punch {like the type you use in an office}

The Products I Used

Now I have to give Lindy's some product love. I have been a fan of their embossing powder forever; they make the absolute coolest 2 tone powders I have ever seen.  I had gotten the
magical shaker as a freebie when I was buying some of their products but had never used it
before this project and I had no idea what to expect.  When I shook the powder out onto the paper, it was a blah taupe color and I honestly didn't think it was going to work.  I got a little  upset thinking I ruined the paper I had made.  Well, once the water touched it, the color literally bloomed in front of me - it was amazing!  Their sprays are also quality- I hadn't used them in ages; honestly probably since I added the water to them way back when I received them a few years back.  However, a little shake to mix the color and I had no problem spritzing them out at all. No clogs, no blobs, nothing.  Beautiful!

I made my paper with the various Lindy's products, then die cut all the snowflakes.  I realized I needed a neutral color to use with the colored snowflakes so I chose a pearlized white and used that to cut out more snowflakes.  The hand-held, circle punch was used to add a circle in some of the flakes.  I cut the sentiment out of the same paper, layered my snowflakes around the card, trimmed it, and I was done.  I am very pleased with this card, I love all the sparkle! Thanks SO much for stopping by! ~ Fondly, Christi
