GLITTER SNOWFLAKES TWO WAYS

I’ve got two cards to share today – glitter snowflakes two ways, and in keeping with DieCember, there’s not a stamp in sight!

Isn’t that new Big Joy Snowflake simply stunning! The delicacy and detail are just outstanding. So I knew I wanted to use the Big Joy Snowflake and I was wondering how to prepare it – clean and white or drenched in glitter? Then I thought about the new glitter card and opened up the pack, and then there was no decision to be made because the glitter card is gorgeous and in a HUGE array of colours. I was taken with the range of metallics and chose Copper And Bronze. The Copper glitter card has photographed more like an Antique Gold though but in real life is slightly deeper and more vibrant in colour.

I die cut the Big Joy Snowflake from the Copper Glitter Card and doesn’t that just look gorgeous!

I also cut the Rejoice die from the Copper Gitter Card and then to pair with them I die cut a Maryanne Snowflake, and one of the Stitched Flakes dies from the Bronze Glitter Card.

For the background panel, I watercoloured a loose line across a watercolour panel using Quinacridone Coral with a touch of Hansa Yellow Light mixed to give a peachy tone in places. With my sewing machine, I stitched a line across the watercolour and then mounted the snowflakes. I used a small piece of foam adhesive for the Big Joy Snowflake as it has a solid centre, but for the other two snowflakes, I kept them in place with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I mounted the panel on a Fog card base and added Pretty Pink Christmas, The Color Of Fall and Crystal Reflections sequins to accent.

Now I know watercolour isn’t everyone’s thing and so I wanted to work out a quicker way to create the above card. That’s when I remembered the My Mind’s Eye Blush papers I had in a card kit a month or so back.

I cut a panel of the paper and again added a stitched line across. I cut snowflakes from Copper, Bronze and Black glitter card. This time for the large snowflake I used the Big Bliss Snowflake. This is another stunner, and I’m finding it hard pressed to decide whether I like the shape of the Big Joy Snowflake or Big Bliss Snowflake best.

I again cut the Rejoice die from the Copper Glitter Card and then compiled the card as before.

I added the sentiment with foam adhesive and adhered the snowflakes with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. Although the Black glitter card is, well black, it is a blue-black so when added to this card it comes across as navy blue.

I added the finished panel to a Soft Navy card base and then accented with Vintage Chic and Colour Of Fall sequins.

Which snowflake card do you prefer? The watercolour or patterned paper version? My love of a soft palette and watercolours always leads me to the watercolour one, but I’d love to know what you think.
