Snowflakes Galore

Since I was using Vellum paper (scroll down and check out my last post) and my snowflakes from Snow Swirled set, I decided to make another card. I had seen this technique on someones blog awhile back and I am so sorry I don't know who to give credit to. The technique is rather simple, stamp your image on the vellum, turn it over and highlight the image by adding some color with a dauber behind it. So I stamped my snowflakes in Whisper White, turned it over and using a dauber added some Bashful Blue behind it. Added some glitz to the center and tips of my snowflake with some Crystal Effects and glitter. Added some fun 'icicles' (with crystal effects and glitter) to top off the card and placed my vellum piece on a Bashful Blue card base. Wintery and fun little card. I have a fun holiday project and great gift idea coming up for you, make sure you come back and visit!

Gorgeous job with the snowflakes. I never thought about adding color behind the vellum. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
