The Snowflake Spot

I have a group of ladies a work who are very new to stamping but are really keen. This Tuesday, they are having their second card making class with me. They want Christmas cards for this class and I wanted to show them that they don't need everything (yet LOL)to make trully beautiful cards. So I decided that we would make 3 cards that use the same stamp set (The Snowflake Spot) and the same colour family (Rich Regals).

For this card, I made a circle mask out of vellum. I sponged the edges of the circle in Brocade Blue and then stamped one of the smaller snow flakes in the same colour. I then stamped the big snowflake in Night of Navy. I made a bow out of Navy ribbon and added a greeting the Short and Sweet set.

For this card, I started our with my favourite sketch. This style of card works so well with almost any set. I choose Elegant Eggplant, Regal Rose and So Saffron and just ramdonly stamped the different snow flakes. I added some Eggplant ribbon and the greetinf from the same set in Eggplant too.

For this last card, I got the idea from SCS. There were many cards in the gallery using this idea and I jut loved them all. I used Always Artichoke and Handsome Hunter to stamp the middle sized snow flake in a circle and then added Rose Red spots for the berries. I added a bow of Artichoke ribbon and finished it off with the greeting from Warm Words.

I love all of these cards. None of them are too fancy but, in my opinion, are pretty and elegant. I hope they like them at school and have fun making them.

These are totally gorgeous Chrissie. Can't pick a fave as they're all fab! I'm sure the girls will be thrilled with them.
Hope you're having a great weekend.

Very nice Chrissie, you've been very busy. Cute idea to use the snowflake to make a wreath too.

I haven't bought this set as we don't see much snow here in Australia - and none where I live - but you've given me some great ideas that don't relate to snow so maybe it will have to go on my wishlist now!
