I saw that Sweet Stamps Blog had a challenge for resist so I decided it was a good time to use my new Starflake Medallion that looks very much like a snowflake. I embossed it in white on white and brought out the design with blue ink. I embossed it in white on silver and cut out part of this to add a layer of silver in the middle. Then I embossed it on white and sponged it with blue ink again, only a little lighter, and cut out the middle to pop up in the center, along with a light blue snowflake jewel. All of this is cut out with Spellbinders’Grand Circle die
Behind the image I added a silver doily die cut with the Dutch Scallop Square die from Cheery Lynn. The blue layer behind the doily was created by stamping and embossing just the outside border of Sweet Stamps’ Pansy Layers Frame on snowflake paper from DCWV. I cut it out and layered it on silver and cut it out again. I distress the edges and layered all of this on some lovely red, white, and blue paisley winter paper, also from DCWV. I sponged the edges with a little blue ink, distressed the edges, and layered it on white cardstock that was turned blue on the edges with sponged ink. Distressing it created a thin white edge and this is added to a white card base.
I really wanted to add some ribbon but then saw this lovely jeweled swirl and new it was just what it needed.
