Silver Snowflake

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing a CAS Watercolour card featuring a snowflake. That's our challenge this month at CAS Watercolour ... check out the challenge to see all the beautiful entries.


I used brushos to create a background and then cropped to just a bit bigger than my snowflake.  I stamped the background in versamark and heat embossed in silver to create the look of more snowflakes falling.

The snowflake is a stitched die cut from silver foil card stock.  I heat embossed the sentiment in silver as well to tie it all together.

I hope you'll come join in the fun at CAS Watercolour.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I don't think any other color combination captures 'winter' better than blue and silver. It makes everything feel so crisp and clean. Love the brushos background, and that gorgeous silver snowflake. Perfectly embossed sentiment too. Great card. Bev
