Countdown to Confetti Day 1 {Reverse Confetti}




Hello there!  Welcome to day 1 of the Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti!  All of the new products that you are seeing over the next few days will be available in the Reverse Confetti store at all your favorite retailers on November 8th!


Today, I have a card to share with you using an adorable new snowman set called Cool Friends!  I have a thing for snowmen, and I squealed with delight when I pulled these cuties out of my design team package.  To create my card, I started off with an A2 card base in Premier Polar White cardstock.  I added a strip of striped patterned paper from the new Cheerful & Kind paper pad.  I just LOVE the colors in this paper collection!  To create my focal point, I diecut the largest square from the new Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts die set from Premier Polar White.  I adhered that to the card base on a diagonal.  I think it adds some whimsy to the card.  I filled the square with snowflakes from the Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts die set.  Then I stamped and colored the cut little snowmen from Cool Friends in colors to coordinate with the patterned paper, diecut them with the coordinating Cool Friends Confetti Cuts dies, and popped them up with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from the same set onto a diecut banner from the  Greetings Frame Confetti Cuts die set, and popped that up with foam tape as well.

I added some accents with a white gel pen, and gave their eyes and buttons a coal-like look with a black glaze pen.  Finally, I added some more glittery snowflakes using Glitter Nuvo Drops.  Tiny details like this can bring so much life to an otherwise simple card design.  The finishing touches are my favorite part! :)

What a fun card!! The colors in the paper don't scream winter, but are so fun and lively, it doesn't matter!! Love how you incorporated the same colors in the snow friends' hats and scarves. Love the snowflakes, my absolute fave die-cuts so far, and what turned me on to RC!! ♥
