Where we live, in our own little piece of heaven, watching the snow gently fall from the sky among the trees is a truly wondrous experience. Our main floor is actually two stories up, so when looking out the bowed window at the falling flakes, you get the feeling that you are out there among them. Almost a part of the beauty. But, warm inside.
"Believe" is a perfect sentiment for this card. Because to be lucky enough to witness a spectacle such as a gentle snowfall, there really is a feeling of belief. Belief that something bigger than us -- mere humans -- is gifting us with the many beautiful gifts of nature.
The sentiment, embossed in pewter, is fussy cut and set atop a strip of dry embossed snowflakes. The straight strip looked stark, naked, and somehow not right. So I also fussy cut around the edges to soften this miniature snowstorm.
To honor the sometimes wild beauty of a snowfall, I set my dimensional snowflake against a wild "sky" of faux silk. I think this also adds to the magic.
I separated the four layers of the snowflake with Stampin' Dimensionals, with a stack of TWO Dimensionals between the second and third snowflakes, a single one between the other layers.
I actually made this card specifically for this week's challenge from the Paper Players:
I especially love this shot of the card in that the lighting makes it look positively ethereal.
Which would be about right, seeing where snowflakes come from to us on earth.
