Snowflake blizzard!

Welcome to my crafty blog. Having thought I’d finished my Christmas cards, I had to produce a few more today, when I discovered that I can’t count and was several short in my stash! This card was inspired by the current challenge over at The Paper Players ( using a technique from a recent class I did with Marion Emberson of Sugar and Spice Crafts. Judging from the current weather forecasts, there won’t be any sign of snow in London this Christmas, so I thought I’d contribute my own!

I started by sprinkling some WOW bright white ultra high embossing powder onto the front of a black 5×5 card blank, and then heating it so it looks like snow. I have to say I realised I’d been a bit heavy handed with the powder, so it’s more of a blizzard than gently falling snow! As all crafters know – you can add it, but you can’t take it away!

Next was to stamp and emboss the sentiment, which is from Stampin Up’s ‘poinsettia petals’ set. I used a silver sparkle embossing powder for this.

Finally, I die cut three snowflakes in white card, using one of the dies from Stampin Up’s ‘so many snowflakes’ set. I popped a dab of glue in the centre of each snowflake and then aligned them across the snowy panel

A fairly easy last minute card. I only had a couple of black card blanks left, so also made a few using kraft card – and learned my lesson about a lighter sprinkle of the embossing powder on these!

  1. No shortage of snow on this one Deborah, but as long as it stays on your card and not in the air here in the UK that’s fine by me! Seasons greetings and thanks for playing along with us over at The Paper Players this week!
