Crystal Flurries

on January 1, 2016

 

As my obsession with snowflakes continues, here is a card I made with my new Crystal Flurries set by The Ton stamps.  I embossed the flakes with Ranger Platinum embossing powder and then water colored the paper.  I embossed the edges of the white cardstock with the same embossing powder so that it would match the stamps.  The vellum banner is hand stitched with a silvery thread I found in my cross stitching stash.
