Ombre Snowflake




Here is a card I made for the Getting Ready for Christmas Challenge at Splitcoast.  I was very pleased with how this card turned out with it's ombre effect.  I began by inking up a piece of cardstock with Distress inks, cut the piece on an angle then cut that into three pieces.  I created the snowflake by die cutting the snowflake 4 times then glueing them together to give the snowflake a chipboard appearance.
It has a real presence on the card.
I am adding this card to the Cas on Sunday challenge (winter theme).
Thanks for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Paper Smooches/ snowflake die (SSS)/ wh eb powder/ Distress inks
