Crystal Snowflake Corner
by Sue McRae
Hello crafters, Sue here today with a Christmas card...or two.
I couldn't wait to get inky with the Crystal Snowflake Corner Frame. It's such a pretty die to use to frame a card and there's lots of room to add die cuts or sentiments inside the frame.
After I die cut the frame from white card stock I added Versamark ink all over the die cut, sprinkled it with embossing powder and heat set. I found this pretty light blue embossing powder that has different sizes of clear particles in it that adds such amazing sparkle. I really wish you could see it in person, it's perfect for frosty winter cards.
For the background I took white card stock and sponged on Distress Inks for a night sky. I sprayed the piece with Perfect Pearls, flicked on white opalescent paint and white Distress Paint to add snow to the sky and adhered that behind the frame.
I die cut the We Wish You A Merry Christmas die from red foil card stock, adhered it to the background and the card is done. Lots of sparkle and shine going on.
I thought that the red foil might be a little too dark on the inked background so I made a second card identical to the first except I die cut the We Wish You A Merry Christmas from white satin pearl card stock.
The white does pop a lot more but I couldn't pick a favourite so I'm showing you both and you can let me know in the comments which card you prefer.
Thanks for visiting with me today!
