I've gone for non-traditional colours - I think they make Christmas card zing! I'm playing along with CAS Colours & Sketches - CAS#203 where the team want us to use a previous 2016 sketch and make it seasonal; I've used the sketch #195. I've used the colours from Colour Throwdown - CTD#422 and, as it's a holiday card, I'm submitting to Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#223.
I die cut a panel of white water colour card and stamped these gorgeous snowflakes in Versamark, heat embossed them with clear powder and then revealed them with water colour paints. I think emboss resist is one of my favourite techniques! I stamped the greeting on some scrap white card and cut it out with a die. I love the bold pop of orange with the die cut snowflake and the subtle hint of sparkle too. On the inside I cut a mat layer of dark blue card and on the white panel added a sentiment and some funky snowflakes!
