Its beginning to look like Christmas on my blog today. I just love a bit of Christmas crafting and I knew I had to make a start on some of this years cards.
I wanted a simple design as I have to make a few for family and friends in the UK and I found the perfect set from Stampin Up called Snowflake Sentiments.
The snowflakes stamp so beautifully and the sentiments are just perfect.
To make the cards I started with a piece of white card stock and made my inky background together. I blended two shades of ink together which were blushing bride and petal pink for one card. For the other card I used balmy blue and pool party. The inks I have used can be found in the Subtles Collection or you can buy them individually.
Once the background is dry you can begin to stamp. I used the blushing bride and petal pink again and stamped the snowflakes all over the card. Once these were dry I then used some versamark ink to stamp the larger snowflake from the set and used some gold embossing powder.
For the greeting I used the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies and inked this up in the same way as the background. I then used one of the sentiments from the set and again heat embossed this in gold. I then added a few dimensionals to the back and attached this to the centre of the card.
I then changed the colour scheme on this card so I went with silver embossing powder and made this card in the same way as before.
I love untraditional colours for Christmas and the colours of these are just the thing. I think I might create a whole rainbow using the inks from the Subtles collection.
