Golden Snowflake Greetings


Today's card was a quick and easy one to create and has a nice shine for the holidays.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I looked through my stash and found this blue 'roll off' sheet that I did while using my Gel Plate.  Anytime I use my Gel Plate, I keep extra cardstock at hand to roll excess ink off my brayer.  They make great backgrounds!
  • I placed the cardstock into the Angled Mosaic embossing folder and dry embossed it.
  • Next, I rubbed some Simon Hurley Lunar Paste over the raised surface of the embossing and set aside to dry.
  • I die cut the snowflake and embossed it as well using the same folder, then rubbed some more of the paste over it .
  • I glued the card front onto a piece of gold cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • I used some foam tape to pop the snowflake over the front and added the pre-printed sentiment.

Thanks a lot for coming by and taking a look.
