SSCC4, Snowflake in Bloom

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

Lately I'm in the mood to create Christmas cards....and maybe - just maybe - I can get them all done this year - LOL!!!

I really like this super gorgeous Snowflake in Bloom Stamp from Holly Berry House.

I made two different cards with this Stamp........

















The snowflake was inked in Versamark and embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. I repeated the step twice and cut out the second snowflake. As you can tell I trimmed it down and left a centerpiece.....which I raised up and added a Chocolate Pearl on top.

On this card I used the retired Wintergreen DP Collection. I matched it up with some Satin Ribbon.

*************************************************

Here is another approach.......



















I used the beautiful SSCC4 Sketch for this card.

Again I inked the snowflake in Versamark and embossed it with the Copper Embossing Powder twice. Both images were cut out and raised with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The DP is from the Christmas Cocoa Collection. I added a matching Brown Ribbon and at last I decorated the card with the Chocolate Pearls.

Have a wonderful day!!!

I really like both cards but there is something about the last card that is very striking, maybe elegant is a better word. tfs
