CCM 154 Snow

Our final challenge of the year over at Crafty Cardmakers is Snow. If like me, you haven’t yet finished your Christmas card making here is an opportunity to get one more under your belt, or maybe you fancy getting a head start on 2016’s cards!


I have made my card for a neighbour who wouldn’t appreciate the humour that has gone into my card I created for most everyone else!

The background and stamp are both a free gift with Quick Cards made easy. I embossed the background onto plain white card and stamped the sentiment onto the same type of card with versamark and then embossed it with Wow sparkling powder. I wanted to have a similarly sparkly edge to the mat of both background and stamp so I cut shapes slightly smaller than the stamped panel and the background and using those shapes as a template (so I didn’t waste too much embossing powder) I went around the shape with the versamark pad onto a larger piece of card and then embossed again with the Wow powder. I trimmed it all up neatly and bingo, the mat matches the sentiment.
