Positive and Negative Snowflake Season’s Greetings Card

I had a scrap of silver mirror paper, with snowflakes cut out…I needed to figure out how to use it. Turns out it was not square/even (I kept it, need to figure out if I have a shape die that will preserve most of it!), so I made a new scrap, and saved the center pieces of the snowflakes to glue onto the design. The mirror piece was mounted on Shine shimmering paper.

Before I got around to photographing the above card, I got serious with the other leftover snowflake scrap. I decided an oval die would preserve the most for me.

The snowflakes I added were cut from Shimmering White card stock.

I am linking this up to Simon Says Stamp’s Christmas Card Day post – the random winner will get a $100 gift card.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, Simon Says Stamp, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bashful Blue (retired), Real Red, Shimering White, Silver Foil, Shine Pearl, ink – VersaMark, dies – My Favorite Things (snowflakes), Spellbinders (ovals), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, Stampin’ Up!

Watercolored Ombre with Snowflakes Seasons Greetings Card

My Kuretake watercolors were on my table for another project last week, and I played around with watercoloring over my Neat and Tangled stencil, playing with an ombre look. I actually painted it light side at the top, but when I was putting this together, I thought the darkest blue needed to be at the top (sky), and the lightest at the bottom (snow).

Supplies: Stamp – Hero Arts, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Silver Mirror, ink – VersaMark, watercolors – Kuretake Gansai Tambi, stencil – Neat and Tangled, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), My Favorite Things (snowflakes), embossing powder Ranger Silver Pearl, organdy ribbon – Offray.
