Blue Snowflakes...

Happy Monday,

A bright and wintery card for your delectation today!  I live Blue white and silver and thought it was time, after a lot of black, that I went a little more traditional today.

to start I embossed the Yale Blue lustre print card using my snowflake circle embossing folder.  I then sanded back the raised areas to show the white core under the print, for this card i lightly sanded the card so that a soft snowflake look was achieved.

Next I added the die curt form the Amy Design range cut in white over this.  Next came a sanded and embossed panel of the blue embossed with the winter trees embossing folder ( see yesterdays card(

I then added the Crafts Too snowflake cut in card that I had covered in silver kitchen foil.  I then added ranger gloss accents in white on the snowflake to add to the snowy feel.

A layer of mirror card embossed with my star stream embossing folder and a few layers of blue and white finish this 8x8" card.



  1. Morning John, I love todays card, such a gorgeous shade of blue, it works perfectly with the white and silver. Have a good day everyone. Bx

  18. Hi John,
    what a very beautiful card, and the colours are so gorgeous.
    As usual your designing is ace and very brilliant.
    I really enjoyed watching you demo yesterday and could have stayed there the whole of the time if the men folk wern't hungry.
    My Daughter who doesn't craft at all was so taken with your work too.
    Can't wait till you have a workshop near me as it was a lot to take in, and remember.
    Lots of crafty regards. Jenny L.

  19. A beautiful card John. Love it. I really like your embossing folders. They are so easy to use. Can't wait to see what new things you will have on 24th. Thank you for all your inspiration. Take carexxx
