Snowflake Christmas

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Tracey Farr our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

It's the third Saturday of the month, which means it is time for a sketch challenge.

I changed my card from an A2 card in the sketch to a Slimline Card. I also flipped the sketch so my cluster of three items were at the top left corner rather than the bottom right.

To create the background panel of my card, I did cut the smallest rectangle using the Pink Fresh Studios Slim Diagonal Rectangle die set  from white cardstock. I used snowflakes from Simon Says Stamp's Gnome for the Holidays stamp set, stamping them with VersaMark Ink onto the card and embossing with white embossing powder. Once embossed I covered the cardstock with Pistachio Distress Oxide ink. I then used the same snowflakes and clear embossing powder and stamped a few more snowflakes. Next I blended on Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink  and then added a few more snowflakes. Finally I blended on Blueprint Sketch & Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks.

I die cut three snowflakes from white and aqua glitter cardstock and adhered them to the top left hand corner of the card.

I used Taylored Expressions Mini Strips - Holiday stamp set and coordinating die to add the sentiment to the lower portion of the card.

For the inside of my card I added the rectangle layers using both the Pink Fresh Studios and Honey Bee Stamps Slimline dies I used on the front of the card.

I added the sentiment which is from a Kaisercraft Stamp set and three snowflakes from the Simon Says Stamp Gnome for the Holidays stamp set.
