I was asked to create some invitations for a winter social we are having with our Japanese Friendship group. When I asked the hostess if she had a theme in mind, she said she wanted a "snowflake fusion".
I have the cuttlebug embossing folder and knew that would be an easy background that would not take away from the image. I also wanted to use the new In Colors. I toyed with the design a lot and wished I had purchased that red stripe ribbon in the SU catalog! Darn it anyway! I had to make do with the red behind the white ribbon (which was Laura's idea...so thanks!).
I used white craft ink to sponge the snowflakes in the background. I think you can see it if you look really closely! It is very subtle, but just enough to give it some dimension.
The snowman/woman panel is up on pop-dots for dimension, as is the snowflake circle.

Thanks for looking! I know "real" snow is around the corner and I am not ready!!
