Snowflake Thank You


Made for 3 challenges: Thank you cards for the monthly Hero Arts challenge and also for Moxie Fab World's Card Creations: Favorite Occasions Week.  And for a monochromatic challenge at Caardvark's.

I started by transferring almost all of a clear set of thank you sentiments to my acrylic block and stamping it on glossy white cardstock with versamark ink, then clear embossing it.  I then sponged on stormy sky and faded jeans distress ink.  After that was dry I stamped on some small snowflakes in chipped sapphire distress ink. A die-cut snowflake and 2 punched snowflakes were added, and all of the snowflakes got a dab of several colors of stickles in their centers.

Supplies: white glossy and matte cardstock, Hero Arts CL341 Thank You Sayings, CL343 Holiday Sayings, CL462 Magic of Christmas (stamped snowflakes), versamark ink and clear embossing powder, stormy sky, faded jeans, and chipped sapphire distress inks, stickles, die-cut snowflake, punched snowflakes
