CFC123 - Pinterest-Inspired Snow


A snowy card for this week's CASual Friday challenge:



and inspired by this photo I found on Pinterest:

Le Manoosh: Photo


I used my favourite snowflake shape from Uniko's Stunning Snowflakes. I love that there are 3 sizes so you can build up a blizzard! Everything on here is embossed either in clear or a coloured ep. I stamped the Savvy sentiment in Versafine Onyx, then embossed in clear. Then I stamped the white snowflakes in Versamark and embossed in clear. Then I stamped a couple more, embossed with Turquoise, stamped a couple more, embossed in Green. etc., etc. This panel was probably heated about 8 or 9 times and I found it interesting that after the initial couple of times, it warped. But after that, as I kept heating it, it flattened out again.

Then I chose this position on the the Smoky Slate card base, to emphasize the feeling of the snowflakes falling from top left to bottom right. Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know if that worked for you! ;-)

This beauty just punted the previous #1 Favorite Ardyth card out of top spot!

The position on the card base really does contribute to the movement of the flakes from left to right! Beautifully embossed with gorgeous colors. Your photo captures the clear embossed flakes really well (tough to do!)

Interesting tidbit on the paper straightening out.

That is one beautiful stamp! Love all the colours and the design and glad that it straightened!
