Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
I've been working on that Christmas stash again.
I used a NBUS snowflake stamp from Hero Arts.
It's a big stamp!
I stamped it on a card front size of Neenah and heat embossed it with silver powder.
I need lots of practice on ink blending backgrounds, so I pulled out a blending brush
and went to work.
When I was finished with the blending, I cut it into two pieces. One was a little bigger
to center one of the biggest snowflakes. I matted the smaller piece on some silver foil,
and used a die to emboss a frame for the larger. Sorry, the camera didn't seem to pick
up that embossing.
There was shine, but I wanted sparkle, so I die cut some snowflakes from
silver Glimmer paper.
How's that for sparkle and shine?
I used some shiny stickers in the centers. They're nice and flat so
the cards will be easy to mail.
