Prim Snowflake

Meet the newly released Prim Snowflake and the new Starry Top stencils from A Colorful Life Designs.
This snowflake stencil is one of the most interesting and these 2 stencils worked so well together.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and placed it onto my Make Art Station.
  • I centered the Prim Snowflake stencil over the cardstock and inked it up with some Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink.  I added some Uncharted Mariner DOX ink to the middle and edges of the snowflake to add some extra definition.
  • Leaving that stencil in place, I positioned the Starry Top stencil over it and inked that up with some Tumbled Glass DOX ink.  I repeated that step by flipping the stencil over and inking the rest of the panel.
  • I removed both stencils and splattered with my white Posca pen.  I added some white dots to the circles as well.
  • While that dried, I got out a piece of vellum and placed it into my Misti to stamp the sentiment.  I also heat embossed it very carefully with some clear powder as not to warp the vellum.
  • I glued the vellum to the dry card front, attaching it around to the back and glued that onto a piece of navy cardstock.
  • Finally, I glued the finished panel onto an A2 sized card base.

Here are the stencils I used:

The two blue colours are beautiful together and the two stencils work together brilliantly Karen, and I love the strip of vellum you used for the sentiment and finished with some pretty gold pearls to finish. x
