Sparkling Snowflakes

This is a card I made for the Get Sketchy challenge #57 and the Jolly Holiday Greetings Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.



Unfortunately the photo isn’t great as I found it hard to photograph the glitter and the colour didn’t turn out true to life – it’s a bit paler than it looks in the photo.

Stamps (Hero Arts) - Stunning Snowflakes & Holiday Dolls

I embossed the snowflakes, one of my favourite Christmas stamps from Hero Arts, in white on white card, applied broken china distress ink and spritzed with water. Then I machine stitched the piece of white card, which had been embossed in the Cuttlebug, onto the background. I added glitter and gems to the die cut snowflake (Cuttlebug ice crystal) and am still finding bits of glitter all over the place! I just embossed the sentiment in silver and added lots and lots of gems for some more sparkle. Thanks to Sue for all of the gems I used here!

This is my first Christmas card for 2010 and now I’m really in the mood for making some more!
