Grandma's Snowflakes ~ Happiest Holiday 2018 Power Poppy



http://powerpoppy.com/products/grandmas-snowflakes/Hello everyone!!!  Oh my goodness did I ever have THE...BEST...TIME working with the new Power Poppy set Grandma's snowflakes!!!  They are just super charming and they remind me of crocheted doilies.  I love anything vintage, so these babies are right up my alley!!  

This card is super easy, and came together in an hour.  I know right?  That is unheard of in my world.  3-4 hours/card is usually the standard for my card making skills.  But this one, designing, trial-and-errors and all...1 hour.  Woot-Woot!!

I started with a standard A2 size piece of kraft cardstock.  I stamped all the snowflakes onto it with Versamark, and heat embossed them with Super Fine Detailed White Embossing Powder (Ranger).  I then masked off a 3/4" border on each side and sponged Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink onto the cardstock.  After it dried a bit, I sprinkled water on it, let it dry and removed the mask.  Lastly, I used a Sakura Gelly Roll 10 pen to add some white flecks to the background, and fussy cut the individual words from the sentiment that I heat embossed in white on black cardstock.




That's it folks.  It's almost a one layer card, but I really struggle with leaving cards without a frame.  I tried...I really did.  *sigh*

Now, be sure to check out what the following Bloom Brigade members have to share with this set.  I know you'll be inspired!!

Really lovely card idea. I like it on kraft with the big stripe of oxide ink.

Ooh, Tosh, I LOVE it! I loved reading how you used kraft for your base and sponged oxide ink. Fabulous look with the gorgeous embossed crocheted snowflakes! What a stunning card, and I'm with you and one-layer cards...so hard to do! Beautifully done, sweet friend, and I LOVE it!! Hugs and love! xoxo

Beautiful card. Love the delicate snowflakes which really do look like crocheted ornaments. The kraft and lilac is so pretty together with the white snowflakes.
