SB2 Vintage Snowflake Card

Hey stamping friends!
LOVE weekends...more time to stamp, and Sandi and I have a new Sketch Challenge for you today!.


Here is the sketch from Stamping and Blogging.
And here is my take on the card this week. 

I originally had the greeting along the bottom left (that version is loaded to the Gallery on the S&B website), but then moved it to the top right with a piece of hardware as that space then seemed too empty.  But the rest of the sketch is pretty much the same.

The ribbon, hardware and paper are from the Holiday Mini, and of course I had to throw in the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Folder!  Then added the "red" as the accent color.

What you can't see from this picture is that the snowflake is covered in Dazzling Details to give it some sparkle! Oh and did you notice I stamped right ON the ribbon - How cool is that!

Want to make this a non-holiday card? 

  • replace the snowflake with a stamped image
  • heat emboss to outline the image
  • use some linen twine or chocolate ribbon
  • use more hardware/brads
  • use a different Textured Impressions folder like Square Lattice - that's one of my favorites as well!

Hope you enjoyed this week's card.

We can't wait to see it! Thanks for playing along with us!
