Todays card is an entry in this weeks Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge No. 115 “Snowflakes”. Snowflakes!!!! I grew up in central Queensland and I’ve never seen snow in my life, so this was a challenge for me. I own snowflake dies and embossing folders, but even for Christmas cards, I’m not big on snowflakes, because it doesn’t snow here. But anyway, challenge or not, I’ve given it a go.
I have embossed my white core cardstock with the CLD Snowflake Flurries embossing plate, I’ve left the paper attached to the plate with painters tape and lightly sanded the cardstock to bring out the embossing. The darker cardstock for the mat and Elegant Labels 4, I’ve actually coloured with a pearl ink because I couldn’t find just the right colour to use. I’ve used the same ink to colour both the light and dark poinsettias. The centres have been filled with silver micro beads and the holly flourish has been cut from white cardstock and coloured with a silver mist. Unfortunately, even though Cheery Lynn have a huge range of snowflake dies, I don’t own any. So I’ve used a snowflake die from Die-namics (I’m unsure of the name of it, I’ve owned it for a number of years), I’ve attached the snowflakes with foam tape and kindy glitzed them, for a bit of sparkle.
Cheery Lynn dies used: B148 Holly Flourish, DL113 Exotic Butterfly small #2, DL113A Small Angel Wing, B324 Poinsettia Strip, B154 Medium Rose
