Embossed Snowflake Christmas Card

I am writing this surrounded by mess. Yesterday I decided to clear out the cupboard under the stairs. Today I have to put what I'm keeping back in - it's amazing how much junk can fit in such a small space. I hope your weekend is slightly more exciting!

As I've said before, I hadn't really used stencils much before Clarity started making them, so this is another experimental card.

I used the Snowflake stencil and clear embossing powder to create the background. To do this I inked up the stencil with Versamark, ran it through my Grand Calibur to transfer the ink and heat embossed them.

When I had covered the background with embossed snowflakes I spritzed it with Glimmer Mists to create a lovely shimmery background. I also did this for the sentiment which is cut with a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight die. Some Dusty Concord Distress Ink adds some shade around the edges.

A lovely big bow, made with Silky Crush ribbon, finishes it off.

Stamps Used
German Celebration Set / Deutsch Feier Satz

Stencil Used

Suppose I'd better get all of this stuff put away now.



  1. Very pretty card, Lynne. I bet it is one of those that looks even better in real life, as the embossing doesn't show so well in pictures. xx

  2. Gorgeous card, Lynne, I'm hoping to start Christmas this afternoon once I have cleared some space on my after yesterday's session. Pleased to hear that you have to create more mess in order to tidy xx

  3. Very pretty colour Lynne and a good tip to transfer the ink onto the card using the stencil. Thank you for sharing xxx

  4. What a lovely card Lynne. It's very striking.

  5. lovely card Lynne and the ink around the edge just makes it ping x
