Snowflake Christmas card







Hello everyone and welcome to the August Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge where the theme this time is 'snowflakes'.







 I glitter heat embossed snowflakes ( a mixture from Hot Off the Press, PTI, and Inkadinkado) onto heat resistant acetate and then  used a die from Avery Elle Custom Panels to cut it into two. I also used the die on some blue pearl card and adhered the acetate to it. I just used glue on the centres of the  snowflakes so I could hide the glue with gemstones. 


I also used the blue pearl card for the base card and I stamped and embossed the sentiment from Happy Little Stampers Mixed Christmas Sentiments before I glued the bottom panel flat on the card. I raised the top panel on fun foam and finally added the gems to the snowflakes.

                               This challenge is sponsored by                          


You will find lots more inspiration on the Happy Little Stampers blog, and I do hope you will join us and add to or start your Christmas card stash.

Thanks for stopping by

Hugs
