Xmas Card

Hi all its July 1st & I've made my first xmas card!!! I used Chloe stamps & my Grand Calibur & my craft stash & it was so easy but looks so effective. First I stamped a piece of centura pearl with versamark & used silver embossing powder & my heat tool, this stamp was sooo easy to repeat & make the larger background.  Then I stamped the large snowflake stamp & the small snowflake stamp twice & embossed with the purple wow powders, then cut them all out. I used a large GC die & edged it with purple glitter paste, then put it on my 8x8 card. I layered my background on a piece of purple card. I then stamped my greeting on a piece of scrap purple & white card with purple glitter paste. I added silver snowflake gems to finish & layered it onto another piece of the purple card. I added foam pads & placed on top of card. I shaped the snowflakes with a pencil then layered one on top of another with foam pads. I added a couple of white ceramic flowers in the middle of each & placed them on the card. I found a few purple flower sequins with some more of the silver snowflakes in the middle to finish off.
