Christmas Snowflake

I decided to make a very non-traditional looking card using some purple and these beautiful stencils called
from A Colorful Life Designs.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I found this Gel Plate print in my stash.  I had used some Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink on my Gel Plate with the Aztec Pattern stencil.
  • I placed the purple print onto my Make Art Station and put the Elegant Snowflake stencil to one side.
  • Next, I got out my Unicorn white ink and pressed it over the stencil, being sure to fill in all the areas of the snowflake, then I white heat embossed it.  
  • I splattered the card front with my white Posca pen and let dry completely.
  • While that dried, I stamped and cut out the sentiment strip. I added some purple inking along the cut edges.
  • I glued the dried panel onto a piece of pale purple cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • I used some foam tape to pop the sentiment to the side and added a white pearl gem to the middle of the snowflake.

Here are the stencils I used:

The large pretty white snowflake pops beautifully against the purple gelli plate print which makes a wonderful background Karen, and some pretty white spattering too. x
