Cute Card Thursday - Snowflakes

It's a very special challenge today on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog as it is our 500th Challenge!

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Snowflakes'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

This card was inspired by and started in Alanna Moses class at this year's Whimsy Stamps retreat. It was so much fun - although my card took a twist to the original design.

I decided to use this awesome Snow Flurry Background Stamp, from this month's new rubber stamp release at Whimsy Stamps.

I stamped the background using Versamark's Watermark stamp pad, and then heat embossed it with white fine embossing powder. It really makes the image pop! I then used a gold metallic watercolor paint to paint over the background. I used a dry paper towel to remove any paint that covered the heat embossed background.

The sentiment is from the Scripty Occasions clear stamp set - again this was stamped in watermark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
The sentiment card was edged using the Hand Stitched border die.

This was all finished off with gold baker's twine.



We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Stamps, a great prize as always!

Here is my prize - Whimsy Stamps new release 'Oh Holy Night'.

Happy crafting :-)
