White Christmas At Make My Monday

Hello everyone and hope those of you in the UK are surviving the current nasty weather. Hoping too that none of you are flooded out as the pics on the news last night made me feel so sad for all those poor people affected especially at this time of year too.
I'm here today with my post for our new challenge this week at Make My Monday which has the theme of White Christmas. I have to admit to having stretched the theme a little but snowflakes are white - right!
I have to say this is also the quickest card I ever made in my life involving stamping which took less than 10 minutes from start to finish so hope you like it!


Here's how to make it:
  • Take one square kraft card blank.
  • Using Versamark ink, stamp on snowflakes in the top half, varying as shown.
  • Heat emboss the snowflakes with white detail powder.
  • Stamp the Tim Holtz text (Scribbly Christmas) with Versamark and heat emboss as before.
  • Use a Sharpie fine white paint pen to add dots as shown.
How easy is that! I used some snowflake stamps I've had for many years too by Denami and Art Impressions - I still think they're the best!

The Design Team have made some fabulous inspiration for you if you'd like to see. Hope you can join us too.

Have a great week.

I see why you love those stamps - perfect size and beautiful patterns and you've shown them off beautifully here - love how you did the strings with a white marker.

I adore the white snowflakes against the kraft - who needs to spend ages when a speedy card looks this good?!
