Monochrome Christmas with Snowflake Sentiments

Snowflake sentiments monochrome

Hi there!
Today was a good day, I spent the morning trying to tire out my two year old and was rewarded with him taking a nice long nap, which meant I got to play!

I still need to make a lot more Christmas cards and time is running out, but the card I created today is really easy to mass produce but is still one of those cards I would be happy to give as a “special” card.

To start, I stamped and heat embossed the snowflake from Snowflake Sentiments in white onto a piece of scrap card, and then blended Smoky Slate ink over the top.  I sprayed this with water to create a textured look, and then wiped the embossed image clean to make sure it stood out in crisp white.  I die cut this piece and then set it aside.

The sentiment was stamped and embossed in silver onto vellum, and then I used the tag punch to cut it out.  I used some silver washi to frame the sentiment, and this was also a way of hiding the dimensionals I used when assembling the card.

I then simply embossed the card front with the gorgeous snowflake embossing plate from Stampin’ Up! and adhered the circle die cut in the middle, then popped up the sentiment tag as discussed.
