Christmas Snowflake


Welcome to this week's LIMES inspiration post!

I chose this card as my inspiration from the gallery of this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper!

LIST: Colours (teal, red, white), Techniques (stamping, die cutting), Elements (envelope with flap, red scalloped circle, layered snowflakes, sentiment on label die cut, pearl embellishment))

INCLUDE: teal, red, white, layered snowflake

MODIFY: stenciled, embossed background, no scallops on red circle, created flap-look with extra inkblending on my background

EXCLUDE: sentiment

SPIN: square card, gem, spritz and splattered

This colour combination is one of my favourites for Christmas, and I also have a weakness for snowflake dies. 

I stenciled a square of cardstock, then blended over the whole thing for a tone on tone look. Then I masked off a triangle and added another layer of ink to create my faux flap.

I blended red ink onto a white cardstock circle, and then put the two layers through my die cutting machine with a 3D embossing folder to add some texture. I spritzed the panels with shimmer spray and splattered with some silver watercolour. 

I added dimension to my layered snowflake by die cutting small circles and layering them up between the two snowflakes.

  1. A fabulous result Ardyth - love the texture you obtained with the embossing - it likes like more falling snow.
