Sparkling Snowflakes

This card is one of those that is easy to replicate in bulk if you need a lot of the same card. You can get a bit of a production line going.

The large background snowflake stamp was inked up with Brilliance Orchid ink ans stamped across the DL card. It was then heat embossed with a clear sparkle embossing powder. I made a slit in the spine of the card  at the bottom of the stamped background and threaded the ribbon through, wrapped it around the card and tied in a simple knot.

The main focal image was given the same inking and embossing treatment before being matted onto a gorgeous pink mirri card. The outside mat was also inked with the orchid ink just to make it stand out from the background. All the mats were cut using the large labels Nestability.

Finally I added a greeting peel off as I didn't have a stamp that I thought was suitable.

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Crafting,
