Snowflake Christmas Card

After the upside down card in my last post, I thought I'd share this one which also had a "Stupid Lynne" moment.

This one nearly stopped it being made altogether! More about that later though.

The main image was from a session of me playing around with a stencil and inks to see what effects I could create. I made my favourite into this card.

I used the Snowflake Cluster stencil, blue ink and an Ink Duster to create the background. Then I stamped over it with vertical rows of the Snowflake Corner. A Kaleidacolor ink pad in Blue Breeze gives it the different shades of blue.

When I've done a pattern like that I hate to cover it up, so I just added a German Christmas sentiment to it and a thin black mat.

The side panels are a Spellbinders tag cut in half ( Fancy Tags 2) and the background is embossed with a Spellbinders Grand M-Bossibilities folder (Garden Lattice).

Before I go, I have to share the "fun" I had with this card.

I'd just made another card using the Snowflake stencil and wanted to start this one. One problem - the stencil was nowhere to be found. I'd only just been using it and my craft room had been tidied the day before so I couldn't understand what I could possibly have done with it.

To cut a long story short, I spent well over an hour searching for it before I spotted it.

Can you see it?

It was totally camouflaged on some old lace curtains, that were on my Pilates Performer, in the middle of my craft room. Why did I put it there? It's a miracle that I ever found it!!!!!!!!!!!
