Sparkle Snowflake | by Tracey McNeely

Hi there, it’s Tracey back today with some more inspiration using Birch Press Design craft dies. There is something magical about snowflakes and even more magical when you combine them with some sparkle.
To create this card I die cut the Issa Snowflake Layer C with some white and silver sparkle cardstock. Once the cuts were cleaned out I used the inner portion of the die to create a white sparkle snowflake with the thin innermost layer inlaid with silver sparkle.
The background was created by blending some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink on to a 5 1/4″ X 4″ piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and then the panel was splattered with Copic Opaque White. Once it was dry I stamped the sentiment from the Joy and Peace in black ink onto the panel.
The snowflake was assembled right on the panel by first adhering the larger white snowflake to the centre over the sentiment and then the thin silver snowflake with inlaid into it. Lots of pretty sparkle and the blue ink blending behind it creates a very dreamy looking snowy scene.
The panel was attached to the card base using some foam tape for dimension.
Using sparkle cardstock with any of the Birch Press Design craft dies adds a special touch to your cards. Look at  how pretty the snowflake is with two shades of sparkle cardstock.
Have another look at how pretty the card is.
Thank you so much for creating with me today to create a pretty card. Dig out your dies and give this technique a try. Have a wonderful day.
