Snowflake Starburt


Hope you are all enjoyed your weekend, I have been playing with ideas for a card for the Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge.  The challenge is to create a Christmas card using a non Christmas stamp,  here is my snowflake card made using a stamp from Oak House Studio  called iron border  to create a snowflake starburst.


The whole stamp was used for the longer branches of the snowflake and the shorter ones using the lover edge of the stamp.  The snowflake was stamped and embossed with silver detail embossing powder, a snowflake from the Snowflake Collection was stamped and embossed onto a circle of card which was added to the center and white pearls were added to the snowflake.  The card was lightly sprayed with Silver Pearl spray ink to make the background look snowy.  Finally the greeting from the sending you peace and joy stamp set  was added to the card and the insert,  

All stamps and inks are from Oak House Studio and card used from Papermill Direct.  Check out the Craft Stamper challenge here you have until 27th November to enter.

Hope you like my snowflake starburst, I certainly enjoyed making it.
