Sparkly Snowflakes








Not everyone at Christmas loves 'cute' as one man at my craft fair told me. He said my cards were all too girly! Anyway for all those on my Christmas card list that don't do 'girly' I made these cards last night!

I was browsing through the Hero Arts blog the other day and was inspired to dig out my heat gun, after I brushed off the dust, I had a lot of fun heat embossing the snowflakes in white. I am going to enter this card into the Papertake Weekly Challenge as their theme this week was sparkle and bling. I'ved added a sparkly gem to each snowflake and lots of diamond stickles to the tree.

So, I even managed to pump out 3 of these cards in a couple of hours as they were so simple to make.


Materials:


Stamp: Hero Arts Snowflake Design Block, SU Christmas Tree

Card: Hero Arts Notecards

Embellishments: gems and ribbon from stash

Tools: Heat Gun
Thanks for looking,
Judy x
