Snowflakes during the Summer by Debbie

I'm over the moon to have made a start with my cards for Christmas and the Big Bold Backgrounds certainly have helped with the massive task I know we all have at making so many.
For this card I stamped the Solid Snowflake onto white card with Versamark Ink and coloured with chalks that have been in my stash for years. I used traditional red with brown as I wanted a vintage looking card. For the baubles I stamped the Snowflake Outline and embossed with Wow Red Glitz embossing powder, it sparkles beautifully. I placed the bauble die carefully on the stamped card and managed to die cut two from the same piece of card. To help the bauble stand out from the background softly edge with vintage photo distress ink. Finishing with a couple of bows, some stickles dots and a sentiment these stamps are going to help with batch card making. Thank you for visiting. Debbie

  1. I love the idea of using the chalks & the Vintage Photo inking of edges does add real emphasis - the colours are very delicious & I love the way those chalks blended.

  2. This is gorgeous Deddie, I love the 3 d element especially as it isn't too deep to make postage a problem
