Coloured Snowflakes

Hello everyone,

Just a reminder, clean and simple cards are not easy. Today's card, based on this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge, took five tries before it actually worked and it isn't perfect. The challenge was to use five colours on a one layer card. Not necessarily an easy task but certainly doable. I tried an idea that I'd had floating around for the last couple of weeks and it worked! I love it when that happens.

The card base is from Recollections. The images, Stampin' Up Serene Snowflakes, Snow Swirled and Snow Burst, are stamped in Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry, Taken With Teal and Tangerine Tango, and heat embossed with Close To My Heart Silver Pearl. The sentiment is Annabelle Stamps Holly Branch. The embellishments are Close To My Heart Bitty Sparkles.

I think this card is even better than my idea. I've been wanting to play with the Silver Pearl embossing powder and the different colours of ink and this was the perfect opportunity. The Silver Pearl is just amazing and the snowflakes turned out wonderfully. I have to say, the photo doesn't do it justice as my camera (which is held together with an elastic) just doesn't like white space. Thank goodness for cropping.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
