Sanded Snowflake

Today's card was truly a fast one to make using a piece of cardstock that I rolled my brayer off onto while Gel Plate printing.  I find it's so great to have them on hand and I always keep some scrap paper nearby when I've got my plate and brayer out.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by pulling this inked background out of my stash.  I had rolled my brayer off onto it while Gel Plate printing.
  • I placed it into this Snowflake Embossing Folder and ran it through my machine.  
  • Next, I took out my sanding tool and sanded off the raised areas to reveal more of the design.
  • I did some second generation stamping around the edges of the panel by inking up my stamp with some Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink, stamping off onto a scrap paper and then stamping on the card panel.
  • I splattered with my white Posca pen to give a more snowy look.
  • I glued that onto a white A2 size card base.
  • I used some foam tape to add the sentiment strip across the middle of the snowflake.
  • Lastly, I added some silver gems to add interest.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

What a beauty Karen - the extra 'almost ghost stamping' on the background has given this design so much more interest - a stunning result
