Gold Snowflakes...

Happy Wednesday,

Today's card is another sample using g one of my new embossing folders this time the snowflake frame.  I love the way the centre is left blank so you can put whatever you want in there!


I lined up the folder with a piece of white card and a simple circle die.  I then taped the die down and removing the folder cut the circle in the centre.  Once done I embossed the piece again lining the aperture in the centre.

For the faded gold look I simply used the new Izink Gold pigment ink pad and gently stroked over the raised area.  As you can hopefully see i stroked the pad form the centre out so the colour fades towards the edge.

For the centre of the card I added an aperture in white and then in gold cut with the stitch dort circle dies.  I then mounted this over a piece of embossed and sanded card embossed with the winter trees embossing folder.


I then simply added the 2 find it media deer dies, cut in white gloss card, on the bottom of the card against the trees at the back.

I added stick on pearls in the centre of some of the snowflakes to highlight the details. A few mats and layers of the white, gold and black and the card its finished


Enjoy...

  24. A beautiful card John and I love your shows, though making cushions etc is not my thing it was fun to watch the demos for the fabric paints and stencils and I have a feeling they are going to be a very popular line, especially if they have the lovely soft feel that you say they have.

  36. This is a lovely embossing folder John. I embossed a card with it yesterday and today have cut some silver snowflakes to go in the middle. Think I will use my silver pigment ink pad on the embossing after seeing this card today. Thanks for the ideas. Take carexxx
