Happy Little Stampers March 2020 Christmas Challenge~Anything Goes (optional twist: Beverage)...Big & Bold Snowflakes


Welcome to Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge; Anything Goes is always the theme with an optional twist which, this month, is beverage.

Colorado Craft Company's Big & Bold line of stamps are precisely that: Big, Bold and Beautiful!  I've created two cards using the Warm Wishes Snowflake and oh my...this is one large, lovely image! For each card, I used three-four gradients of ink (Altenew for the blue; Pinkfresh Studio for the coral), over-stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder. They have a pretty sheen in real life. I wanted to keep the snowflake as visible as possible, so I created thin sentiment strips with Concord & 9th's Joy set. Is it too early to have my 2020 Christmas card design already decided *grin* This snowflake...swoon-inducing!

That's it from me; please head over to the blog to see my talented teammates' festive delights.

Looking forward to visiting your Christmas cards in the gallery!

I love the style of these snowflakes, Carol. Big, bold and slightly irregular as snowflakes should be.
