Christmas Snowflakes

Today's card features a technique I did earlier that I called Stripped Down.
I thought this new Dotted Flakes stencil from A Colorful Life Designs, worked so well for the theme of the card I was making.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of white cardstock and inked it up with some Broken China, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.
  • Next, I die cut the inked panel into strips and carefully set them aside.
  • I cut another piece of white cardstock and glued the strips onto that, flipping every other one in the other direction.  It really adds a lot of interest.
  • I set that aside to dry and I die cut the round Christmas Token sentiment with some white cardstock.
  • When the glue was dry on the strips, I placed the Dotted Flakes stencil over the panel and inked it up with some Unicorn white ink.
  • Next, I splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • I popped the strips panel onto an A2 card base using some foam tape.
  • I glued the sentiment circle over the finished card front and added a blue dot to the center.

Here is the stencil I used:

Another clever and unique background Karen in those really pretty blues, and the white circular snowflake sentiment makes a great focal image, and the blue gem in the middle finishes it delightfully. x
