Snowflurry snowflakes.

Hi  followers, friends and visitors,

Jennifer here again with another one of my creations.   This card I made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Craft's in July 2012.   I know lols, I hear you say Christmas cards in July !!!!!    but that is when we crafters begin thinking of and making our Christmas samples.   This is a very quick card to make if you don't have a great deal of time or you are making a lot of the same card for all your friend's and relatives.   Let's get cracking without further ado, so here we go.

The base card is made from lilac cardstock and onto this I matted a piece of blue card, slightly smaller than the lilac.

Take some shiny black card and lay the stencil onto it and dab the Versamark through the design on the stencil.   Carefully remove the stencil and using a soft brush, dust the mica powders over the Versamark.   Dust off the excess powders.   Cut around the design.

Matt another piece of shiny black card onto the blue card, leaving a small border of blue showing..   Next fix the stencilled card to the black card using black sticky foam pads to add some dimension to your card.

Add some holographic gems to the snowflakes and add some ribbon down the left-hand edge of the card, threading it under part of the stencilled, cut out design.   Add a ribbon bow.

Punch out five snowflakes from blue card and glue to the card front.

Cut out a two inch circle from white card and colour using distress ink.   Stamp the greeting in the centre and stamp the snow around the edge of the circle using the black inkpad.   Add a holographic gemstone to the stamped circle and fix the circle to the top left of the card, using sticky foam pads, again to give a little dimension to the card.  Glue three more gemstones in a group of three in the bottom left-hand corner.

Well that's it folks until we meet again, when I will have another creation for you.   Hope you enjoyed your visit to my blogg.   Take care of yourselves and have a good week.

                                                                 Love and rainbows

    1. Thank you very much Rachel, glad you like it. Thank you for following me and I do appreciate your comments. Hugs Jennifer xx.

  3. Gorgeous Jennifer. Lovely technique with the versamark and mica powders. I have tried this once but it was a bit of a mess. Will have to give it another go.

    1. Hi Mags thank you. I like this technique too ! Give it another go as the effect is really very nice. I dab Versamark through the stencil then remove the stencil, then spread the mica powder over it and gently polish it with a soft brush. I also think it looks more effective on shiny card., Hugs Jennifer xx
