I LOVE snowflake stamps, just not snowflakes in real life so much. My vision for this card was to use the large snowflake as more of a medallion instead of a snowflake, I’m not sure I succeeded. I started with a sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge (#CAS269) and the color palette from Colour INKspiration Challenges (#CI32) but the Pink Pirouette just didn’t make it onto the final card.
I’m playing along with the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge today. Here is my take on the sketch.
The gold foil is left over from the Watercolor Christmas kit in the Holiday Catalog. Since I’d already used some of it on a card, I thought why not make use of the rest on cards instead of lining envelopes. If you don’t have the Watercolor Christmas kit, just use the gold foil sheets.
This is the card I made for swaps at Onstage in Madison the beginning of November. OnStage is a gathering of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators where we celebrate our accomplishments and learn about upcoming products. I also made this card in my last Cookies & Cards class over the weekend.
