Get Cracking On Christmas: Sparkling Snowflakes


*** Click HERE for today's Lawn Fawn Release Week Post ***

Hello! Welcome back to the next Get Cracking on Christmas feature!  Each month Jenn, Cherion and I are challenging ourselves to make and post a holiday card in an effort get a head start on Christmas cards and to inspire others to as well. This month we are welcoming some new guests to this little Christmas inspiration post.  Today we have Libby & Caryn joining us as well and I will list links to all their blogs at the end of this post.

I used a Simon Says Stamp snowflake stencil that unfortunately is no longer available, with some white embossing paste on cream cardstock.  After removing the stencil and before the paste had time to dry I dusted it with iridescent white glitter.

After the paste was completely dry I trimmed down the panel to clean up the edges and mounted it on a cream card base for a tone on tone mat. The sentiment is die cut from a copper paper with the Merry die from Concord & 9th.  I cut multiple layers of cream cardstock with the merry die and stacked them with the copper on top to create a thick die cut sentiment.  The banner is cut from a shimmery white cardstock and I embossed the "wishes" part of my sentiment with rose gold embossing powder.  I finished off with some Snowfall sequins from Neat & Tangled sprinkled around.
