Foiled snowflakes ...

Good evening ... just popping in to share a card ... I'm still on the hunt for a design that is effective but easy to replicate ... I quite like this one but it takes too much time to make multiples of but I might be able to adapt the design using a different technique!

This is full of very shiny snowflakes but, as always, impossible to show in a photograph - you will just have to trust me.  I die cut all of the snowflakes from a sheet of double sided tape and adhered them to a piece of card.  I removed the tape backing and then applied a selection of different coloured foils to the images.  I added the die cut sentiment and adhered the panel to the card base with foam tape for dimension and interest.  I think the design might work with stamped snowflakes and heat embossing which would be quicker than foiling the images.

I'm going to enter the following challenges:

"Less is More" #356

Uniko Challenge #44

STAMPlorations Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge



  1. Nice card - although I Hate snow, i love snowflakes. I could see using different embossing powders to create the effect too. this will go on my "try it" list.

  2. Ooh! Please tell me when you get that perfect speedy Christmas card design Elaine ... I definitely need to get a wriggle on with mine! Love this neat and classy layout, wonderful shine from the snowflakes and great to see you play along at both Less is More and Uniko with this one. x
