I made several Christmas cards this time and I am quite proud of the neat outcome of my trials ๐Ÿ˜› This is the first in the series that I am going to share and its a snowflakes Christmas card. If you are into cardmaking, I would love to get suggestions on Christmas stamps available in India. Maybe not this year but in next years haul, I would include those suggestions ๐Ÿ™‚

Supplies used to make snowflakes christmas card :

How I made the snowflake christmas card :

The snowflakes stamp set is from Varnas Creation and they are the only known ( alteast to me!) ย Indian brand of clear stamps other than Itsybitsy. Varshita (owner of varnas creations) being a crafter herself has put in a very useful and elegant set of layered snowflakes stamps. So here is how I made this snowfakes Christmas card :

Cut out the base card of 4 1/8″ x 5 7/8 ” ( yes I am too lazy to cut it out into A2 size :P) from the fabriano cardstock. For the blue layer, I cut out a piece from a random blue cardstock and dabbed it with mermaid lagoon ink with the help of sponge dauber. I dabbed a bit of ink of the dauber and made multiple impressions at random areas of the blue cardstock without reinking so that I got a varied intensities of color there.

For the snowflakes, the set had layers which could be matched for background and foreground of the snowflake. I used memento summer sky shade for the background stamp and archival aquamarine shade for the foreground stamp. I fussy cut all of them and glued them over the already prepared blue cardstock.

I had some white sequins that remotely resembled snowflakes ( bought looong back from local store) and I added them to fill in some gaps here and there.

Later stamped the sentiment from Merry stampset of mama elephant at the white portion of the card (which I intentionally left because my initial plans of heat embossing white sentiment over blue card was spoilt when my heat tool broke down!)
