Even though I live in sunny South Florida it doesn't mean I can't play with snow... Ok not real snow but I do have these sparkly snowflakes in my craft room thanks to Kat Scrappiness!
A few days ago I made a card with an ink blended background and die cut a background panel out of it.
When I was throwing away the leftover negative pieces, the die set Snowflake Kisses popped into my head.
The cool colors just reminded me of snowflakes so I cut out some snowflakes from the scraps!
I wanted a soft background for my snowflakes so I took a Hero Arts stencil that I've had since last year and did some some soft ink blending in the center of my card with the same colors I used on my card. The 3 colors of distress inks I used were:
I love how these 3 colors blended together to give nice cool overall feeling (unlike we will EVER feel here in Florida)!
Ok well maybe for 2 brief days in February!
The main die cut for the card is a one piece sentiment that is also from the die set Snowflake Kisses. The set comes with the sentiment and one small snowflake.
The words were cut from glitter card stock and the inked snowflakes were scattered around the card. I also included the tiny stars from the center of the snowflakes to fill up the card.
(Waste not want not!)
Lately I've had an obsession with Stickles glitter glue and I thought these snowflakes could use a good dose of sparkle and shine. I love how they twinkle in the light. I wish the photo picked it up better.
Here is a picture of all the supplies I used on the card.
This was definitely one of those unexpected cards that I wasn't planning on making but I'm glad I did!
