Winter with Sweet Stamps

Sweet Stamps Challenge:

Winter

Make sure to join us on the Sweet Stamps blog, we'd love to see what you create. You have a chance at winning $20 to purchase some "sweet" things of your own!! There's plenty of wonderful things to choose from!

Here's two cards I created:
When I think of winter, I think of snow!!  I just love how this one turned out with the big bow!

 This is the first one I created and after I had it together I thought it would be fun to add the big bow, which is why I then created the one above.

The Snowflake #1 is so much fun to use!  For these cards I stamped the snowflake in black and the used CI Paints Garnet to add some shimmer!

The inside:

Instead of using an embossing to create the background, I thought I would do something a little different. I used Snowflake Die to cut out all the different snowflakes and then glues them to the card base.  There 21 snowflakes on this die!!

Lastly, a close-up of the stamped snowflake:

Hi Kendra! I really like your snowflake cards! They are so striking...the red, white and black! Love the embossed background and then that red and black really POP! I think my favorite one is the one with the black ribbon and the little red bling. Thanks so much for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
