Snowflakes

This card combines several challenges into one. This week at Less is More the challenge is to use a metallic element & one other colour; at CASology the theme is snowflake; and I really liked the current sketch at Sketch Saturday, although I haven’t stuck to it exactly.

The ribbon has been languishing in my stash for several years now and as it fitted the first two challenges perfectly (it has a metallic edge, is pale blue although that’s not easy to see in the pictures & is decorated with  metallic snowflakes) I decided it was about time I used it! The snowflake is a Cuttlebug die, embossed with a matching embossing folder, coloured with Pastel Blue Promarker & then glittered using my new Clear Wink of Stella brush which got its first outing.

Flowery 30th Birthday

I dug my Craft Robo Lite out of its box for this one, I don’t use it as often as I’d like as I have too much stash stacked on top of it!  The numbers, circle & looped circle were all cut on it, then the centre circle was inked with Adirondack ink.  The flowers were either punched or diecut on my Cuttlebug from card & vellum scraps, then finished with flatback gems.

Coredinations cardstock, numbers in Abbess font, centre circle inked with Adirondack Cool Peri, flowers either diecut (Cuttlebug 37-1508 Flowers) or punched.
