We Are Like Snowflakes

For this month's EC Anything Goes Dare, I was inspired by the crisp whites, cool blues, and shimmery tones of iridescent and silver sparkle that all come with a fresh snowfall creating a magical winter wonderland.

To begin, I stamped the Snowflake stamp using VersaMark numerous times across the bottom of my 4 3/4 x 6" white cardstock card base and then heat embossed with Silver Sparkle emboss powder creating a border. 

Next, I stamped both Flakee and Elegant Flake multiple times with Unicorn Hero Arts Hues pigment ink and then heat embossed some with Iridescent Shimmer and some with Soft Fallen Snow on the 4x6 Wild Whispers card. I fussy cut out a snowflake from a 4x3" Wild Whisper card as well as cutting out and ticket corner punching the sentiment from another 4x3" Wild Whisper card in this collection.

Once all the components were prepared, I was ready to assemble by glueing down the stamp embossed card to the base, adhering the sentiment with foam tape and then using glue dots to mount the metal ring clipped Victorian Snowflake Charm and Mini Victorian Snowflake Charms. Beautiful shimmer, texture and dimension, this is a great multi-occasion seasonal card.
