Holiday Flakes Card Making Tutorial and Video

Hello! I have a fairly simple card to share with you today. I used my new set, Let It Snow, to emboss resist the background.

Here is a quick video to show you how I made the card and a few step by step photo are below.  Sorry I missed taking a few photos. 

I cut and embossed white cardstock using Spellbinders® A2 Matting Basics A (#5 die template). Then stamped four sizes of the snowflakes using VersaMark ink. The snowflakes were then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged using Gina K Powder Blue ink.

Then sponged using Gina K Wild Lilac ink.

I also cut and embossed using the long rectangle from the A2 Matting Basics A set. Then sponged and embossed using Gina K Powder Blue ink.

Removed the rectangle from the die template and stamped the sentiment using Gina K Black ink.

I layered with Pure Luxury In The Navy cardstock and used a Powder Blue card base (4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches). I used 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to pop up the layers, then added self adhesive gems to the snowflakes to embellish.

Thanks for stopping  by. Have a great day!
