One quick card, and then I really need to stop procrastinating on my Christmas cards. Really.
The snowflakes are stamped in a tree shape, filling in with the smaller snowflake where needed. Then embossed with white. I only had 3 shades of blue markers that fit with the blue in the inspiration photo, so on some of the snowflakes I added ink to selective areas and smudged them inward with my finger to get a varied effect. I colored the centers orange to tie in with the sentiment, and act like "ornaments" on the snowflake tree.
Washi tape is over a row of 3 snowflakes below the sentiment. I like how they partially show through.
Inspired by the colors in the Runway Inspired Challenge.
Thanks for looking!
stamps: American Crafts Let It Snow, Papertrey Think Big Sentiments, Places Please (tiny snowflake)
other: Up! decorative tape, white embossing powder, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers
Very cool! I just finished a second card, but I've missed the deadline.ReplyDelete
And again! You take something ordinary, like embossing and markers, and put them together in a fun, new way to create something amazing!ReplyDelete
This is awesome!ReplyDelete
I still don't understand how emblossing in white will keep the blue effect, but as the engineer and now scientist it seems, only you know your awesome power!ReplyDelete

Love the snowflakes. Thanks for the comments on my blog. I do have a question though. Which class did you take to learn to use the Cameo. I did not have a Cricut so am not familiar with cutting machines.ReplyDelete
Love the snowflake tree, it looks wonderful on the dark background. You are still on a very creative roll!ReplyDelete
I nearly missed this beauty! Love the non traditional Christmas colors and the tree shape is fantastic!ReplyDelete
