Snowflakes A Plenty

Snowflake club card This is another card that we stamped at our Christmas stamp clubs.  The colors used are Night of Navy and Very Vanilla.  The background is actually the Bridesmaid specialty designer paper sponged with Night of Navy Ink.  This specialty paper has an embossed feel so the result is an emboss resist look without having to do the embossing!  A similar look could be achieved with the Bride paper or the Groom paper (but with using a light ink). 

The greeting is the very versatile "All Holidays" set pictured on page 43 of the Idea Book and Catalog.  The 12 stamps in this set will cover the majority of your holidays!  The punch is the Jumbo Snowflake punch pictured on page 187 of this year's catalog.  To adhere the snowflakes you can either use a tiny bit of snail placed in several places on each snowflake or use the small applicator on the Tombo Adhesive (p. 192).  Of course while we did this card for a Christmas card, it would be great for any winter card! 

This card was an adaptation of a card originally stamped by Gretchen Barron.  Thanks Gretchen for your inspiration!
