Vicki here...It's my Tuesday up on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog.

Before I go on, don't forget...the Craft-Dee BowZ February Challenge is, once again, being sponsored by Cute As A Button .  They will be awarding a prize of two single digital images of the top winner's choice.  There's plenty of time to create and enter!  You don't want to miss be sure to play along with us.

Thank You, Cute As A Button!

Moving on...

The Design Team is appropriately working with a "snowflake" theme this month along with the colors of light blue, silver and navy.  The ribbons we received were gorgeous and I had the perfect papers and die cuts for this project! 

"Snowfall" is just a dabble of what we had the end of January.  What started out as a weather prediction of 6 to 10 inches, turned into a total of 32 inches for us...All in a matter of twelve hours.  The snowflakes were piling up rapidly, layer upon layer.  Which brings me to my layered, dimensional card.

This card is a size I rarely make, but the snowflake border die was just too pretty to cut down to a smaller size.  I added dimension by using a snowflake border punch and layering over the die cut border.  Sparkly jewels were the perfect accent for the snowflakes.  Reminds me of glistening snow!

The background is two different patterned papers matted in white pearl paper over the navy cardstock base.  The chipboard sentiment is accented with a couple of the snowflakes remaining from the border that I punched across the top of the card.

Everything in layers...including the ribbon and bow!  I layered the light blue over the navy ribbon across the front of the card and behind the sentiment.  The bow is one of my very favorite!  I made two single bows and joined them together at the center tie.  This was all made easy using my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.  If you don't have one, you need one!  Small and easily stored.

Vicki this is a stunner. Funny how we tend to stay away from navy, yet when all is said and done -- it is sharp, crisp and wonderful to look at. Great layering techniques and a very unique looking bow!
