CFS: Must Love Snowflakes


Hi Folks! We're in the middle of a huge release for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps ... it's the third of SIX days of fun new stamps and dies. Today we get to reveal the Must Love Snowflakes set, and all the wonderful sizes and patterns of snowflakes included.

For this one-layer card, I masked off a strip for the sentiment, and then stamped varying sizes of snowflakes throughout the card with Versamark. The embossing powder is Silver Sparkle so it does catch the light when you move it around. To make the sentiment stand out more I embossed it in bright white, and then drew two lines with a white gel pen on the top and bottom of the masked area.

My intent was for the sentiment to be "dashing through" the snowflakes on the card. Since the front is just one layer, I was hoping to add a little zip by using a plaid patterned paper inside the card.

ETA: I totally forgot to post this card too, holy smokes! It's very simple, but I wanted all the white space to go with the "White Christmas" sentiment.

There are four different snowflakes here, all embossed in different colors and layered on top of each other. The middle is Martha Stewart glitter.

Check out the other Ink Squad girls to see what they've done with the set:

Thanks for looking, and see you tomorrow with another fun Christmas set!!
