Another Christmas Card in September

Happy Friday!

Here I have another Christmas in September card I want to share with you.

Lately I ordered the beautiful Sparkling Snowflake die from Uniko which was still lying here on my desk screaming to be used ;-)

I was inspired by the colors of the Color Hues challenge and this is the card I made.

Uniko Sparkling Snowflake

First I die cut the snowflake 2 times and colored them with 2 different Altenew ink colors. As the name of the die is Sparkling Snowflake I wanted to add a little sparkle to my card so I added some Cosmic Shimmer Paste on top of the turquoise snowflake.
I used foam tape to adhere these 2 snowflakes to the card base.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Festive Sentiments set with Sapphire Altenew ink and colored the edges of the strip with the same ink.

Finally I wanted to add some paint splatters to the card but I didn't want use a paint brush because I wanted to have control over these splatters. Instead I used the Distressed Patterns from MFT and stamped them with Turquoise Altenew ink.

  1. What a perfect entry into the Color Hues Challenge! I love those layered snowflakes. I often wondered if the distressed patterns would work instead of splatters, but your card reassures me that they are just fine! The glitter is a great finishing touch. Thanks for joining us at Color Hues #2!
