STATEMENT SNOWFLAKE CHRISTMAS CARD!0
Hi! Linzi here again to share a statement snowflake card!
I sometimes find myself only using snowflake stamps in cool toned cards, but they also work well with warm tones. Today I'll show you how I incorporated warm maroon and rich gold into this snowy card!
You will need:
You will also need:
- White card base
- Wow! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder
- Versamark ink
- Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black ink
- Assorted snowflake stamps
- The Works “Christmas Sentiments” stamps
- M&C Boutique “Stacked Stitched Rectangle” dies
- Gold pearls
- As usual, I started with a plain while card base (A6 size) which I already had in my stash. I then trimmed the Maroon card stock down to 14.1 x 9.8cm and used some Antias PVA Tacky Glue to glue it onto the front of my card base. I then set this aside for later.
- I then took the largest rectangle die from M&C Boutique’s “Stacked Stitched Rectangle” dies and die cut it from the White Hammered card. I then stamped the assorted snowflake dies onto this panel of white card using Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black ink. I stamped them at random, but made sure I had enough room for a full snowflake which I then embossed onto the white card panel using Versamark ink and Wow! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder.
- While I still had my embossing powder out, I took a stamp from The Works “Christmas Sentiments” stamps (one said “Let it Snow” which I think worked perfectly!). I embossed this onto a strip of the Maroon card and trimmed to size – I cut the end slanted just to give a bit more interest to the card. I then glued the sentiment strip to my white card panel, slightly overlapping the embossed snowflake.
- Using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape I adhered the white card panel to my card base, just making sure it was as central as possible, leaving a nice maroon frame around the entire white panel.
- The final step was adding some gold pearls for some extra dimension and sparkle!
I hoped you enjoyed this and it helped show how versatile snowflake stamps can be and how well they work with warm tones!
