Hello Again

**I updated yesterday with 2 posts!  Be sure to scroll down and check those out!!  Thanks**

Hi everyone! I have another Verve sketch card today to share!  This means only one more to go!   This is from the Verve World Card Making Day Release challenges.

This time I used sketch #1 which is shown below.


Another fun sketch!  Here is how I interpreted it!


I have been wanting to use a 3D object on a card for a while now and so I decided that I would try a snowflake for this card.  If I were to put this in an envelope, the snowflake could lay flat. I think that this is such a fun element! 


I die cut 4 snowflakes and glued them together (except for the back ones that I glued directly to the circle mat).  Then, I used stickles to cover the top 3 snowflakes with glitter.  It sparkles so much in real life!  I do wish I would have sponged the edges with ink before I glued them together to hide the white edges, but I made a mental note so I'll do that next time.


You can see that the polka dots (Quickutz Embossing Folder) also have some color.  After I embossed the Kraft cardstock, I took a Aquatic Splash VersaMagic Dew Drop and gently ran it over the dots and also around the edge of the cardstock to soften it and give it even more added dimension.  I like the look it created.  The ink pads are spongy so it is very easy to do this.

I'm sorry that I don't have a supply list for this card or for the last one!  I will try to get back and update that as soon as I can!  But, it is late and I'm so tired so I'm going to head to bed and update that later.  I promise that I'll list the supplies on my future cards, so no worries!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed this card!  Have a great day!
