Hi Friends!! kel here today 🙂 with some shiny, sparkly snowflake cards!
I started with some BEAUTIFUL Stardream Metallic Cardstocks. I absolutely LOVE the shine to this cardstock, but wasn’t 100% sure my inks would dry nicely because of the sheen to it. So I decided to try and make some almost-white-on-white cards with a winter twist!
I started by stamping all over this sheet of Crystal Stardream Metallic Cardstock and then adding some crystal sparkle embossing powder to it. I know it totally looks white in this picture, but it melts clear with some glitter in it!
I cut them down to mat nicely on an A4 cardfront… here’s some pictures so you can see the sparkle. They didn’t stand out quite as much as I had hoped, bu tin some ways, I liked how subtle the snowflakes were!
I then stuck them down to my A4 cards, which I made from some Silver Stardream Metallic Cardstock. I initially wanted to do black or white, but decided to go with Silver because the shimmer matched, and the color was very nicely muted in the background! To match that, I stamped the “winter wishes” sentiment on some scrap Crystal Stardream Metallic Cardstock and then embossed it in silver embossing powder to match my card bases!
The last thing I did was to stick the sentiment banners on with some pop-dots and wah-lah! Quick and easy and pretty, if I do say so myself haha!!
