Serene Snowflakes


Same sketch, different look!  If you’ll notice, I used the same layout I did as the challenge card HERE!  A totally different look, huh?

When I was determining whether or not to buy the Serene Snowflakes set on preorder, I thought…I really don’t NEED another snowflake set.  BUT, these snowflakes are SO delicate looking!  I really am loving how they look!  And…hey…every snowflake is one-of-a kind, right?


AND…I love this color combination!  I normally put Silver with snowflakes.  But, when I made this card I only had the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and I wanted to use it.  So I inked up the snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes in Whisper White Craft Ink, and used a sponge dauber with a little Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and dabbed it on the stamp over the White Craft ink.  Then I stamped the images on the Bermuda Bay cardstock.  It is SO pretty in real life!  Since the Shimmer Paint has a faint gold tone, I layered the Bermuda Bay on Brushed Gold Cardstock (so elegant for the holidays) and wrapped the Stripe Organza Ribbon around it.  The Base Card is Naturals White (a little sturdier for a base card than Whisper White).  I added the Season’s Greetings from Four the Holidays in the Holiday Mini with Bermuda Bay ink in the lower right corner.  Finally, just a sparkle button from the Latte Button Collection as an added touch.

I’m thinking this may be our Christmas card this year.  I’ll add the snowflake punch instead of a button.  It will be easy to mass produce over 120 of them!
