Stacked Snowflakes

Brrrrr!!  Huddle up blog friends, it’s cold!!  I think the frosty temperatures inspired me to break out snowflake dies and stamps :-)  Plus, some serendipity to share.  While I was scrounging around my table for an embellishment to decorate my white bow, I just couldn’t find anything.  Nothing in all that stash!  In the past I’ve needed a brad to match something and have embossed it before with a colored embossing powder, but always a small item.  Today I was jazzed when I was able to emboss my filigree with white opaque embossing powder!  It’s the small things, right?

At any rate, for my card today I’m using the Small Snowflake Background as a base.  I layered on snowflakes stamped with the Sparking Snowflakes set and cut with ODBD Custom Snowflake Dies.  My sentiment on the bottom is from the Poinsettia Wreath set, embellished with a tiny snowflake swirl from the Snowflake Mini Set.

    White on kraft is one of my favorite combinations, and this card with its beautifully stamped snowflakes captures everything I love best about that mix. So elegant, Becca…yet warm and unfussy! The bow is especially lovely.ReplyCancel

    Lovely card that inspires me to break out my beloved Kraft paper and white embossing powder. Glad you dig for stuff cause unused stuff sifts to the bottom of the pile and what we can’t see isn’t used. Merry Christmas Becca and a very healthy and happy New Year!ReplyCancel

    Oh so very lovely! Love Kraft paper with the white. Snowflakes even in Florida (lol) but I like your kinda. It sure is cold!
    My God Bless you and your on this most holy season!

    I love it– I think I could probably pull this one off.–On your filigree that you embossed.You can also just use Stazon–I have done that to my metal objects for years. Do not need to emboss just wait 10 min or so and let it dry.I had to do that as my heat gun died and could not justify a new one at that point..Santa are you reading this hint hint
    Thanks for sharing your talents you do such beautiful work.ReplyCancel

    Gorgeous! I’ve got a silver inkpad (oil based for paper, fabric and wood) and it doesn’t show up very well, even on darker papers so I will definitely have to try embossing with white (newbie alert). It looks great on the Kraft paperReplyCancel
