Multicolour Snowflake

Simple Christmas card today that has a colourful, graphic look to it and was easy to create.
This card is similar to how I made this card a few weeks ago.

So onto my card details.
  • I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock, my Stencil Pat (it is a plastic tool with a flat edge), my Distress Oxide inks, and a small sponge dabber.
  • I laid the flat edge of my Pal and rubbed some ink in a line down my card panel. You could also use a ruler, a piece of heavy cardstock or anything that would give you a flat edge.  I repeated that process, then added some lines criss crossing the first ones going down.  The Distress Oxide ink colours I used were Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Picked Raspberry.
  • When I was happy with the inking, I stamped the snowflake from Stampin Up off to the sided and clear heat embossed it over the inked background.
  • I stamped the sentiment from Penny Black with some Versamark ink, then heat embossed it with some white powder on a piece of black cardstock.
  • I wanted to give this piece a frame, so I die cut it using the In and Out Diagonal frame die from MFT.  
  • I splattered the panel with a white and black Posca pen then by tapping it with my metal ruler, I glued the panel behind the frame and pop dotted it over a heavy white card base.  
  • I added a clear gem to the center of my snowflake and pop dotted the sentiment as well.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
