A Snowflake Soldier Army Awakens

The Guardian of Glitter has been working tirelessly creating some glittery soldiers to assist us in the jailbreak of the elf slaves, which is to happen tomorrow night. The snowflake soldiers she created will be perfect as their shine will be a beacon for the elves, hopefully allowing for some order as we flee with hundreds of slaves from the toy maker’s sweat shop. It will be a difficult journey across the snowy tundra. We have the direwovles and hellhounds resting, as they will have a tiresome night tomorrow pulling all the escapees on their sleighs. The Guardian of Glitter’s design looks good, now we just need to get the dark mage, Nicardu to come and animate these shiny soldiers.
I started this card by inking the background with Distress Inks. I then used the Dylusions “Let It Snow” stencil to add some snowflakes to the background. I ran the sheet through the Cuttlebug to emboss it (and hopefully flatten it out as it was mega curly after spraying all that water on it). I inked the embossing with Chipped Sapphire to make it stand out a little more. I then stamped the snowflake blueprint from the Tim Holtz “Christmas Blueprint” set. The sentiment was from some cheap Recollections brand stamp. Added some buttons on the bottom and called ‘er done!
The inside sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set. I added some snowflakes using a Recollections brand stamp.
I stamped those same snowflakes on the envelope to make everything ultra mega snowflakey, earning me +395 ice magic exp points.

This snowflakey card will be entered into the following challenges before it melts:
The Paper Players Challenge #126: CAS project featuring snowflakes
Creative Craft Challenges2: Non-Traditional Christmas
Card Crafter’s Circle Challenge #54: It’s Christmas

We still have a lot of work to do in the next 24 hours before we free these elfen slaves. That breaking and entering scheme is a whole other plot to thwart...we’re coming for you, fat man.
