Ombre snowflakes

I struggle with pink but one my sons friends is pink mad so he wanted a card for her. Pink but not girly , his words not mine.

I decided to use a fiskers board and emboss some copy paper  and colour it with chalks from dark pink  to light pink in lines to give an ombre effect.

I think you can just about see the three different pinks.

I measured the paper against a white base card and cut it so I could have three panels across the card as my base layer.

I used a do crafts set to cut some snowflakes in silver mirri card and took 3 of different sizes and randomly placed them so they each overlapped two of the panels.

I finished the card using a die cut greeting from a Britannia word die again in silver mirri card.

I actually like how this pink card turned out, it's good to step out of your comfort zone once in a while.




I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-


crafting with dragonflies -whatever the weather

the paper shelter - christmas card

AAA cards - CAS Christmas


fab n funky - Christmas

creative fingers - anything goes
