Default Please, what does this card need?

SEE MY LATER POST FOR MY ATTEMPTS TO WORK WITH THIS CARD



I've been working on this card and it just needs something.....but what??? Any help, hints or suggestions are welcome!!

It's a window card where the saying is on the inside and the vellum is attached over the cardstock front which has a hole in it. I've got pictures of both the card closed and open to help my weak description.

I'll post another picture when I finally get done with it

Thanks!

Maybe outline some of the snowflakes on top of the vellum with glitter.

How about a ribbon at the top? Silver maybe?

How about white fuzzy fibers, wrap it around the fold of the card so you have something fuzzy around the left side of teh card.

Do you have a LARGE Snowflake stamp you can stamp on the front and emboss with irridescent ice EP or do glitter on??

And then add shimmery silvery ribbon down the side and tie in a bow?

It is a great design! very pretty!

I am on the same mindset as Kimberly, but I was thinking maybe stamp that larger snoflake in Nite of Navy or Ballet Blue down the left side, only 3 times, somewhat off the edge. But not perfectly in a row, kind of one closer to the center, one closer to the edge and one back in again. Did that make sense?? lol

Great card tho!

I like the fuzzy ribbon idea. I also think maybe some glitter or glittery embossed snowflakes would add some pizzazz. It's a nice card and I really like the layout.

I agree. I use a lot of white fringey fiber on snowflake cards.

Default If the brads/eyelets are silver, maybe add some silver

fiber with the white fiber to add sparkle and loop all the fibers so they go around the inside and tie on the outside.

I like the idea of the glitter/glittery embossed snowflakes to glitz it up.

I like the way you added the faint blue snowflakes on the inside lower corner too!

Ok, gals I've been thinking and shopping! I spent a good hour at JoAnn's today looking at every single white fiber they had. Of course I bought some since I had a 40% off coupon.

BUT, I didn't like the fibers

But I do have 3 other versions I'm trying to decide between. They are all attached below and I still can't decide what I like best.

(1) I've got the wire with the brads and beads. -I've also got white wire and I could add some curls on the long part??

(2) sewing - big disclaimer here - I grabbed my mini sewing machine because it was near me. If I do this one I'm going to use my real machine so it's straight and I've even debating using a zig-zag stitch instead?

(3) waxy flax with beads.

Also, I didn't put all the brads in all of them yet, still just trying to decide!

So help, any you like better than the others?

All of them are nice. I particularly like the one with the loing wire and beads (the second one). It would be great I think with white wire and white/silver beads. Great job!
