Wonderful Snowflakes

Happy Friday, friends! I’m sorry I missed you on Wednesday; I had a head cold which really dragged me down. Thank goodness it wasn’t COVID or Flu! And with the Thanksgiving holiday, I just didn’t get a card & post done for you. My apologizes.

Speaking of the holiday, I hope all my American friends had a great Thanksgiving. Here, it was just a small group of four even though My Mister bought & roasted a 26 pounder. Yikes! I need a great skinny turkey tetrazzini recipe. Please help!

I had so much fun making this card and a stack of 9 others just like it, but they are very detailed, so not exactly quick. I wanted to make some special cards that had a feminine feel. Center stage is our Wonderful Snowflakes from our July- December mini-catalog. They are stunning IRL (in real life) & pair perfectly with the Whimsy & Wonder DSP. I just wish my picture could capture the shimmer.

I embossed a piece of Marvelous Magenta card stock with our Wintery 3D embossing folder (EF); one folder is snowflakes (shown here) & the other is pine boughs. These folders are 3-3/8″ wide so you can emboss just part of your paper. (& fits in the mini Stampin’ cut & emboss machine).

Next I lightly sponged some white craft ink over the snowflakes to bring out the pattern. Then I heat embossed my sentiment with silver embossing powder on the lower 1″ of non-dry embossed area. In STL, we are a high humidity area, which can sometimes make heat embossing a challenge- the powder sticks to anything moist. So, I always use my Embossing Buddy & even put some on my fingertips. I have a fine dry paintbrush & also use the putty end of my Take Your Pick tool to remove excess powder. Below is a close-up of the front panel.

I tied silver elegant trim around the front panel twice where the folder embossing and non-embossing area meet & tied a knot. A piece of 1/4″ strip of Silver Foil Specialty DSP demarcates the division of the DSP and Marvelous Magenta embossed card stock.

Thanks for stopping! Happy Stamping, Marilyn (aka MJ)
