Hi everyone and welcome back! Today I have another Christmas card for the Holly and Ivy Challenge. This is always an anything goes theme, so a good way to build up your Christmas card stash! I hope you will consider joining along with the challenge this month. Only two more months till the big day!!
I ran the Snowflakes embossing folder through my embossing machine with blue cardstock. I then direct inked the embossed areas with Brilliance Moonlight White pigment ink.
This was covered with Sparkle embossing powder and once heat embossed the corners were punched with the snowflake punch.
Placing a piece of double stick tape to a scrap of white cardstock, I die cut the Memory Box Lindeman Snowflake die.
The protective backing was removed carefully:
... then Bridal glitter was applied to the sticky side! A foam mounting pad was added behind the center of the snowflake, covered also in the Bridal glitter, which would then be attached to the front of the card.
I then cut a window from the snowflake background, with the Stampin' Up window punch, I made it a little deeper to accommodate the sentiment. This was then attached to the white base card and then using the Stamp Platform, the Hero Arts sentiment was placed in the "window".
The snowflake was then added to the front of the card.
A piece of matching blue organdy ribbon was tied around the card. That finished the card for today. Below is a list of the products that I used in my card today.
