No two snowflakes are alike…each with a beauty of their own and Melyssa Connolly has captured the beauty of snowflakes in this new Holly Jolly set that are sure to make you wish it were snowing. This amazing set also includes a die! It’s a fabulous versatile set that will surely bring a holiday glisten to your projects – all you need to add is the glitter!
Holly Jolly is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 35 stamps and one die and will sell for $31.50.
And here's my card...
I tucked the die cut with the stamped snowflake, under the panel with the snowman and the sentiment. This particular sentiment comes as single curved phrase, so I stamped it twice to get an effect of an image enclosed in a circle of words.
I also stamped some smaller snowflakes with brown ink, on patterned paper. I like experimenting with different colours of my stamped snowflakes, and so far they never felt wrong - brown, pink, blue - you name it! I encourage you to do so too... so FUN! :)
Supplies: cardstock: PTI (Ocean Tides), white; papers: My Mind's Eye (Six By Six - Honey Cake); stamps/die: There She Goes (Holly Jolly); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa), Versa Color (Celadon); Copics; distressing tool; sewing machine; twill ribbon; buttons; Nestabilities Circles; chipboard snowflake: Maya Road; pearls/pearl brad: SEI; baker's twine; glitter glue; paper lace
You might have noticed, that I also rebelled with the use of paper... yes, the brown DP underneath is covered with roses! HA! Does it work? I think so, but you tell me :)
The card is my loose take on Cardabilities sketch #43. I'm also playing with RCC30 - Holiday Hoopla.
