Bright Snowflakes...

Happy Saturday,

Today is the first day of my Northern workshop and technique classes at Swainby Im really looking forward to it!

Todays card is a little bright but I really like the mix of spearmint and white and who doesn't like to see father christmas flying!

I stamped the centre element using my build a wreath clear stamp set using the press to impress to repeatedly stamp the wreath around the ring in different colours.  I stamped this in the Izink pigment ink pads so I was able to add glitter clear embossing powder to the image and heat set it to add some sparkle.

\I cut this out, after stamping the sleigh, using a circle die and made mats and layers in white and black to accent the centre panel.  I added a bow of striped ribbon with matching colours to the top with long tails trailing down.

For the main card I letterpressesd the snowflake circle embossing folder,der using aqua izink pigment ink adding clear embossing powder over this and ranger aqua gloss accents in the centre of selected snowflakes.

I made pop the card as shown to focus in the centre.


Enjoy...
