Snowflakes on red

CR00447 square

Another pair of cards using the red Christmas masterboard. This time I added an extra layer of stamping on the background and then decorated it with die cuts.

These were both assembled from things already in my stash. I had die-cut some sentiments and snowflakes at the same time I made the masterboards. I just hadn’t planned on leaving it quite so long before putting them all together.

I stamped the music background in black on one and grey on the other.

As neither the white nor black sentiments seemed to work right on such a busy background, I coloured the white ones silver and offset layered them over the black ones — the effect is still quite subtle (especially in low light which is all we seem to have here at the moment) but I’m happy with it.

I gave the snowflakes a light coat of Wink of Stella and arranged them over the cards. The final touch was the addition of white faux stitching around the edges.
