So Suzy Snowflakes

Hi Everyone,

I am playing with the latest release stamps, creating a Christmas card. I have been making them all year long, but I still have the feeling I am behind. Time to increase the production, I guess...


My So Suzy Stamps:


Snowflakes Large, Medium and Small, Noel

I started out heat embossing those pretty snowflakes in white onto white card stock.

Used distress inks to sponge a blue ombre background.


Wiped off the excess ink from the snowflakes. I spritzed some water onto the card. Heat embossed NOEL onto vellum and added silver tape to my vellum strip.


Love how this turned out!

Wow, Cornelia, what a lovely card! The heat embossed snowflakes show up so beautifully against your ombre background. Love the way you've used those distress oxide inks. Spritzing the water on the finished background really adds a lot of additional interest. The silver tape and rhinestones are a perfect finish to your card. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Now the song "Here comes Suzy Snowflake" is running through my head, Cornelia. I love the look of inking behind embossed snowflakes and yours embossed so well. I've had a few fails with this technique.

What a fun way to bring those snowflakes together in your design. Love the background blue because it's so vivid against the white of the snowflakes.Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful card on our Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week. Loved it!

Beautiful card and I love the delicate design of these snowflakes so I just had to go and order them cause of course I don't have enough stamps (ho hum). I love the blending and how you used the vellum and silver ribbon. So beautiful Cornelia.
