Happy Saturday, yall! I'm sorry I'm so late posting, but I'm here with my Sketch for You to Try! We have a new guest with us this week, so give a warm welcome to Lynn Put! I am a big fan of her Bella creations, so I'm looking forward to what she has in store for us!
My card this week started with a Maya Road chipboard snowflake, and grew into a shimmery black and white creation. I thought this sentiment from the Silent Night PTI set was perfect for the feel I was going for.
This card measures 5 1/4" Square. I stamped the 5" square white panel with the flourish from the Silent Night set in Versamark Dazzle champagne ink, then also ran my ink pad along the edges. You can't see it at all in the picture, but it's just beautiful in real life! I embossed the black panel with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, then ran my Dazzle inkpad along the dots and the edges for some more sparkle. The side strip was embossed with the Snowflakes Embossing Folder, then I painted the raised parts with Candle Light Shimmerz. So pretty!!
After painting my chipboard snowflake with white acrylic paint, I followed Anna's Crystal Snowflake instructions to make mine, using the My Martha Stewart branch punch as well. To finish off the card, I pounced my Versamark Dazzle ink pad all over the sentiment panel, so the whole thing sparkles. I really love how this card turned out!
