Big Joy Snowflake

Hi all, are you ready for Christmas? No, me neither ;-)

I made a few more cards using my favorite Big Joy Snowflake Die that was part of the DieCember release. This time I used using pinks and gold, a bit of a variation on THESE cards I made last week. 


I blended Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks and then spritzed with water and when that was dry I splattered with gold 

I die cut cut the snowflakes from black card and then used a Tim Holtz Wood Slice stamp, inked with versa mark and then heat embossed with gold, I love that the snowflake isn't totally gold and looks a bit distressed don't you think? 


Thanks for looking!

These are lovely, Lol. The colors are fantastic. And........you have a nice little pile of them. I'm a little behind and I am playing catch up on my blog commenting. I don't want anyone to think I've forgotten about them. I'm only going back a little or I'd be typing all day. [Bunny]
