Subtle Snowflakes

Hi Everyone

It is the start of a new challenge over at Unicorn Challenge.  


The theme for this month is Snow/Snowflakes.  We cannot wait to see what you create for this theme.  Please come on over and play along with us.

For my DT card I did something a bit different for me.  I am not very good at Embossing and always end up chucking what I make in the bin as I never like it.  This one turned out quite well though!!

The Card Blank is a 6" Square and I used a Pale blue shade as my base then popped on a white layer.  I used a Blue Versamagic ink pad to ink up the background and then stamped the snowflake flourishes onto it using a clear inkpad.  I then used a WOW Embossing Powder and heated it up.  The embossing powder wasn't as bright white as I would have liked it!  I cut a couple of snowflakes using a Robbert Addams die, added the sentiment which is a stamp from Stampingallday and then finshed with a couple of pale blue pearl gems.  Overall I am happy with this attempt at embossing lol!!

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today and share this card with me.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.

Lovely glittery card and I know what you mean about white embossing powder, so disappointing at times. Lovely background.
Thank you for joining in our 'Lets make a start on Christmas' challenge again this week at Allsorts.
