Today's card is again made up with pieces I had left in my scrap box. I always keep all the pieces I cut and make especially during demos its perfect when I want to play and challenge myself.
I found this background and the snowflake in my box obviously from other projects that hadn't worked or left from a demo. the background is a piece of card I had stamped with the large media plate using the liquid pigment inks in blues and silver. This gives an easy and more importantly mess free background that shines. I embossed this with my star stream embossing folder then ran silver pigment ink pad over the top to bring out the embossed stars.
The snowflake was cut form more of the card and I added swirls and a smaller snowflake cut in the new Crafts Too Yale blue lustre print card. I added a couple of pearls and a strip of a rafia ribbon in the same lighter blue. The snowflake in the lustre print card was lightly sanded to age it and show a little white in the raised areas.
silver shine and light blue make the finished card.
