Snowflake Soiree In A Cool Color Combo

It won't be long until serene snowflakes will soon be softly falling around us in a winter wonderland.  Today's project is a colorful tribute to those wintery days ahead!

I can't help it.  I simply adore a Christmas card in unexpected colors, and this one totally fits the bill!  It features Elegant Eggplant and Pool Party in a refreshing, wintery combination!

This card also features my most favorite stamping technique: Emboss Resist!  

I inked the Snowflake Soiree images with VersaMark clear ink and stamped them on Whisper White card staock.  Then, I heat embossed them with White Embossing Powder and the new dual-temperature Heat Tool.

I sponged in a circular motion over each embossed snowflake with Elegant Eggplant ink to make the image pop!  Pool Party ink was sponged in the spaces between the snowflakes.  More Elegant Eggplant was sponged around the perimeter for a nice framed effect.

My second card was sponged a bit differently with the Eggplant color coming in from the two opposite corners and Pool Party filling in the middle. 

I added sparkling Rhinestone Jewels in the center of the flakes, of course!

The embossed piece is layered on Brushed Silver card stock before adhering it to the Elegant Eggplant card base. 

TIP: Since so much of the Brushed Silver card stock is covered up, I die-cut a couple Apothecary Accents shapes from the center of the piece.  It all gets covered up, so you'd never know that there are holes in that layer!  Why waste it?

I used my Apothecary Accents die-cuts to layer underneath my Greetings of the Season sentiment.  I cut one of the die-cuts in half and adhered them peeking out from under the top and bottom here…

…or from under either side here.  What a classy, finished look!
