Celebration

 The chill is in the air.  We may have flurries tonight.
Time for another Christmas card.

Today, I am playing with some new snowflake dies called Snow Time from Penny Black.  
I wanted to make some silver snowflakes but I didn't have any silver paper so I made my own.  
I rubbed Versamark ink over a piece of white cardstock, added silver embossing powder and heat embossed.  This is a great solution if you need some shiny paper and don't have any on hand.

For the side panel, I stamped the Tall Timbers from Penny Black with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I then rubbed Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress inks over the panel as a background for my snowflakes.  
I stamped the sentiment from the Yuletide Sentiments set by PB with black Memento ink and added my snowflakes with a blue jewel in the center.




 Adding my card to these challenges:

Sunday Stamps- SKETCH 


Allsorts Challenge- SPARKLE AND SHINE


Have a great week and thanks for the visit.

Supplies:  stamps- PB/ snowflake die- PB/ ink: Versamark, Distress, Memento/ wh embossing powder/ blue gems

This is gorgeous! I love the colors, the snowflakes and that beautiful sentiment. I have that sentiment set as well and am using it on my cards too!

Great job making the snowflakes. I've tried that before but when I cut the die the embossing powder cracked and flaked off. Your card is quite lovely and peaceful, perfect for the first snowfall of the season (eek).

This is beautiful, Karen! Love the sentiments you have been using and think I may have to have them! Thanks for introducing techniques that we all can try with out purchasing so many more supplies! Love the idea of the side panel, one I never think to use!

Very clever idea making your own silver paper, and your card is just absolutely beautiful. The sentiment is delightfully worded.
