Hello! I made a couple of Christmas cards using some snowflake dies.I am showing the first card here, and second card in my next post..or it would be too many photos in a single post! 😉
I saw this post from Jennifer McGuire and thought it would be the perfect technique to try! 🙂
I’ve added more photos than usual since the shine from the embossing is just barely visible, and no matter the angle, one or the other flake seemed to vanish! 😀
So, for my card, I made the background using Zig brush markers and water mixed with Perfect Pearls. I used Simon Says Stamp More Fun Flake dies and silver glitter embossing powder for the embossing. The sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink Grand Ampersand. For more glitter, I added little dots of silver glitter here and there between the snowflakes.
Once everything was done and dried, I trimmed the panel, sponged the borders using Dusty Concord distress ink, and among the snowflakes, just to bring out the shine a bit more. I even added Wink of Stella (my pen has dried out and I revived it using water…sigh, need a new one!!) Finally mounted it on a white card base.
Submitting this card to the following challenges –
Timeout Challenge #71: Christmas with an Optional Twist of Glitter/Shimmer –
