I love snowflakes! It doesn’t snow too much here in southeast Virginia. We might get one, maybe two good snowfalls a year. I’m from up north though and snowfalls, snowflakes and snowmen will always hold a special place in my heart :) So, if I can’t get the real thing, I’ll just have to create me some snowy crafts! This card is perfect and makes me very happy!
I used the emboss resist technique for this. On Naturals White card stock, I stamped the snowflakes from the Serene Snowflakes set in various blues (Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Pacific Point) and utilized the generation stamping technique as well. I stamped the large Medallion in VersaMark and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I then started sponging on Bashful Blue, starting in the center of the medallion and working my way outwards changing blue inks, getting darker as I go. I sponged some Marina Mist onto the punched snowflake to make it stand out on top of the medallion. I love the mini jingle bells hanging from the White Baker’s Twine :) A leftover strip of punched Lace Ribbon Border is tucked behind the image panel and layered onto a layer of Naturals White. A gathered piece of White Taffeta Ribbon hides the seam of the punched border. I think that the Pacific Point base really makes the image pop! I love this card! Easy to do, fun and gorgeous to look at :)
Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you’ve been inspired to create a little snow in your neck of the woods or, at very least, give the emboss technique a try.
