Silver snowflakes

Happy Saturday!

The colour combination for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge is one of my favourite festive combos – blues and silver.

I decided to use the heat embossed background technique that I first tried as part of Online Card Classes’ Merry Making class last month. This time, I created a base using some older Stampendous embossing powder and then stamped and embossed the beautiful Hero Arts snowflake background. I love this technique and still can’t believe how the powder from the stamped image just melts into the background to create a completely smooth base!

I wanted to add a die cut sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, but it didn’t stand out very well against the background so I added a vellum oval – I love how you can still see those beautiful embossed snowflakes through it!  To finish off the card, I added some Lawn Fawn snowflakes.

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – Happy Holidays.

Thanks for stopping by!
