Let's get Flake-y

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday,

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog. As you can see I am still making Christmas Cards, hey no one ever said I was on the ball and getting things out on time.  Yes I am one of those Christmas Eve last minute shoppers you see pictured on the evening news. With that said here is my inspiration today for you using:
Let it Snow and Holiday Wishes

Non Blizzard

Blizzard Effect

Card Recipe:
 I started off by using 3 colors of distress ink Dusty Concord, Blueprint Sketch, and Salty Ocean and doing some heavy blending I achieved the blend I was hoping for.  I then stamped the snowflakes with versamark and used white embossing powder and heat set the flakes. The sentiment was then stamped on vellum and white embossing powder used, the silver stars are from my stash (leftover from a previous project) and glued to the vellum layer. The velum was attached to the distressed and embossed layer by applying glue directly behind the stars.  This hides/keeps the glue from showing thru the velum.  The whole thing was attached to a piece of Neenah 110lb card stock cut to A2 size.

For the second card "BLIZZARD EFFECT" the recipe is the exact same except I wanted to achieve a look to the card as if it had been dusted with snow.  To achieve this look instead of using my embossing buddy before applying the versamark to the snowflakes, I took my fingertips and sort of grasped/smooshed them around the edges so that the oil from my fingers would grasp to the card and pick up embossing powder. 
Thank you for visiting today and have a great day!
