Christmas Design 2 ...

This card is my second in my quest for a card I like that is easy to replicate ... this one fits the easy to replicate criteria but I remain unsure!

I began by stamping two pieces of card with background stamps and distress ink - I wanted to create some delicately coloured card to die cut the snowflakes from.  I die cut loads of snowflakes - some I stuck and stacked together to add dimension. Adhered the snowflakes direct to the card base and popped the sentiment up on foam adhesive to add dimension.  I could make quite a few of these as I do have a lot of snowflakes!!

I used:
STAMplorations - Mixed Media Elements, Mixed Media Grunge and a sentiment from Christmas Bell Medley
Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet.
X Cut Mini Snowflakes

I'm entering the "Less is More" Challenge - a colour challenge this week with "Turquoise and Lilac".



  1. I really like this. It's got a crisp, cool look to it, and the snowflakes look great - layering some up for added dimension has worked brilliantly. Thanks for a fab second entry to Less is More!

  2. Just gorgeous. Have a nice day, Ankie

  3. I really like how you incorporated the color on these snowflakes! So pretty! Perfect for the challenge. Thanks for playing along at Less is More!

  4. It's great to see you play along again Elaine and the colours are such a pretty combo aren't they. Loving your super CAS card and those snowflakes look awesome in these tones. Thanks again for playing along at Less is More this week. Sarah x

  5. I love the delicacy of the snowflakes, which you've emphasised with your clever use of the theme colours. Great card.

  6. Elaine, this is beautiful... the delicate stamping on the snowflakes is SO effective!
    Thanks so much

  7. What a great way to subtly colour your die cut snowflakes. This is a great one for multiples, I think you're on to something here :)
    Thanks for sharing with us.
