Christmas Greeting Thinlet over Embossed and sponged Snowflakes

The vellum on this card gives a beautiful soft look to the snowflakes. I'm proud to say this is one of the runner-up cards from our contest last weekend.

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp set and Christmas Greetings Thinlit Dies

To get the soft look of this card I embossed the snowflakes in white on vellum cardstock and then sponged the blues  (Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay) on the back. Its on a card base of Soft Sky, but I found that to make it really 'pop' it needed to be on a layer of white.

Are you loving that big snowflake? Its from a set called Holly Jolly Greetings.  With 17 different words you have tons of options for phrasing.  And if that's not enough you can combine the stamped words with a die cut word.  The "peace" on this card was cut with the Christmas Greetings Thinlits.  And of course, Stampin'UP! lets you save 15% when you bundle select product.  Check it out on page 34 of the 2015 Holiday Catalog, or enter the key word Holly Jolly in the search tab of my on-line store.

This card has a very soft, pretty look and the white snowflakes really stand out with the blue sponged behind them, but I think the thing that made this card a winner was all the sparkle. The sentiment is die cut from Silver Glimmer Paper. And the rhinestones and silver cord add just that extra special touch.

Card contest winnersWe had several categories in our contest: the last 2 days showed the first place winner and one of the runner-up cards. This post  showcases another of the runner-up cards, tomorrow you'll see the last 2 runner up cards and later in the week I'll show the winning projects in the other categories. Of course EVERYTHING is made with Stampin'UP! product. 

If you see anything you like I'm happy to help you get the product or just to consult and explain further how the project was made.  Its all about having fun with our hobby.
