My Favorite Things – Simply Snowflakes

blog-header-2-3

Hello friends! I am popping in today to share a non-traditional holiday card. If you know me, you know I love non-traditional colors! My favorite colors are red, orange and yellow 🙂

  1. On watercolor paper, white heat emboss some snowflakes from Simply Snowflakes Stamp Set
  2. Blend various colors of distress inks (Spun Sugar, Festive Berries, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade). Add water and more ink with a wet paint brush. I also added some shadows to make the snowflakes pop. Let dry and add white watercolor splatters and Perfect Pearl solution. Die cut the whole panel with Die-namics Blueprints 25
  3. Die cut the sentiment with Die-namics Merry Christmas from Gold Glitter Card Stock. Adhere it with glue. Embellish with some PPP sequins (Clear Sparkling, 4mm Pink Peonies, 6mm Lavender Moon) to finish. I am addicted to using both clear and colored sequins! I like how the colored sequins further bring out the colors on my card!
