CASology #74 (Snowflake), Make it Monday #144 (Heat Embossing Vellum), CASE Study #170, CAS-ual Fridays #123 (Let it Snow), Addicted to CAS #28 (Snowflakes), SSS Wednesday 11/12 (Let it Snow)

Snow and snowflakes … rather a popular theme this week (can’t think why!).  If I’d been as highly organised for Christmas as I’d hoped and planned to be (hahaha … as if), I’d have been having lots of fun now, making snow cards galore, just for the joy of it.  However, that’s not the case … there’s still lots to do (I’m hoping you may just be empathising a little here!) … so I’ve made one card to cover all of them (which I think is allowed!) … CASology, CASE Study, CAS-ual Fridays, Addicted to CAS and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday … plus Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday, where we’re asked to use heat embossing on vellum.

I used Uniko Studio and Hero Arts snowflakes, plus Papertrey Ink’s smallest Spot Dot circle (which fits really well with the snowflakes and has a perfect sequin sized centre) as well as one of their Merry & Bright Additions sentiments.  The soft aqua-blue and white-with-pearls colour palette came from the CASE Study inspiration picture.

I started with the base card, drew a pencil line ‘wave’ and stamped the aqua-blue snowflakes and circles along and around it.  The vellum was cut to size, placed over the base and the ‘wave’ was traced and cut out.  I used a piece of clear cardstock between the base card and the vellum to protect the base card and so I could see to stamp the overlapping snowflakes and the sentiment onto the vellum.  They were done with Versamark ink and embossed in white.  I then trimmed a piece of white cardstock to size, adhered the vellum to it and popped the panel up on foam dots, matching the ‘wave’ of snowflakes and circles on the base card.  The finishing touches were the sequins and pearls, and the top rounded corner.

I do hope your Christmas preparations are coming along as you’d hoped … thanks so much for stopping by, your visits and comments are always a delight!  Anita 🙂

    YOU ARE A GENIUS! Using the clear card stock to line everything up is brilliant! The second I laid my eyes on this gorgeous creation I was wondering “how’d she do that so precisely?”. Thanks for sharing this clever trick with us!

    Stunning colors – so soft and pretty. Beautiful design – love the gentle curve – creates beautiful movement! The sweet wee ‘PEACE’ sentiment….gorgeous…don’t you just love the dots between the letters….or did you put them there?
