Snowflake Splendor

Oh my goodness, the Snowflake Splendor DSP is just so beautiful. It's even more stunning when embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder (which is also from the Snowflake Splendor Suite).

It's fun to emboss patterned paper now and then but not all patterns and folders suit this technique. When it works, it can add some lovely texture to your project. 

In fact, I heard a great tip a little while ago, if you have accidentally crumpled some paper, emboss it! It might save it from ending up in your bin. 


To create my Christmas card, I added my embossed patterned paper onto a Highland Heather card base. I chose to have super thin borders - about 1mm - for a hint of colour but not too much.

I die cut two labels from the Stitched Nested Labels - the larger one from Vellum (which has been given the Wink of Stella touch) and the smaller from Whisper White Thick Cardstock.

I created the Joy sentiment and snowflakes from some scraps I had left over from other projects.

If you follow my blog, you'll know I've been playing around with Frost White Shimmer Paint (check out my card here), I added some ink to change the colour and literally painted it onto Whisper White cardstock. I had some left over so I die cut the word 'Joy' from the Joy Dies from it.  

I had some snowflakes leftover from another project that were just perfect for this card.

I really wanted sparkly white paper for die cutting snowflakes and I didn't have any, so I spread a thin later of Shimmery White Embossing Paste onto Whisper White cardstock and let it dry before using the So Many Snowflakes dies. 


I stamped 'To you and yours' (from the Joy and Peace stamp set) in Highland Heather ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with scissors.

To finish my card, I added three Frosted Epoxy Droplets. I adore these and my instinct is that I need to hoard them but they are so beautiful I had to share!
