Gold Snowflakes (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying the weekend !

I'm back with another Christmas design, this time using the beautiful new Big Bold Background - Snowflake Shadow.     This card can easily be duplicated to make a quick batch of cards.  I plan to make more in different colours :)


I stamped and embossed the background with Gold.   Next I blended a little Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feather Distress Inks over the background.   'Merry Christmas' is from Gothic Angels which I also embossed with gold and blended a little Seedless Preserves Distress Ink around it.  The die is Spellbinder S4-322.    I added a couple of snowflake charms hanging out in my embroidery stash and rhinestones in the centres of the flakes.   Easy !

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

  4. Your use of colours for matting again enhances the stamping. That top left snowflake with the Peacock Feathers circle around the central gem echoes your matting layers perfectly & I love how you used the Picked Raspberry & Peacock Feathers for the background then inking whilst using Seedless Preserves for the sentiment edging. The gold snowflake charms are super compliments for the gold embossing.
