Snowflakes in Spring

Good Morning,
I have a couple of Christmas cards to share with you today, the first one is made using a freebie snowflake background stamp from a magazine.

All I did was stamp sideways onto a pale blue panel using white pigment ink then switched the stamp around and stamped again so that opposite corners matched. I then stamped a Clearly Besotted sentiment with white pigment ink onto a strip of vellum and heat embossed with clear powder. I wrapped the sentiment strip around the panel then fixed the panel to an A6 blank. I really liked how this turned out and think I will probably do some other variations of it for my christmas box.

For my second card I used a sheet of Pink Petticoat (now sadly closed) paper which I just matted onto some pink card after printing a sentiment also from PP straight onto the paper. I mounted this onto a 6 x 6 card blank and added a couple of die-cut snowflakes and pearls.

Thats all for now,
