52CCT - March Stash Challenge

I'm proud to say that I was awarded joint Top Honor last week for the CCT card colour challenge with my cute penguin card!

So onto this weeks challenge! A stash Challenge...use paper flowers on your Christmas card. Must have a 3D effect! So an idea popped straight into my head....white embossing on vellum, then an ink resist.

Here's my card. Simple but pretty, remind me of pergamano! The cardstock is shimmery white but you cant really see that from the photo. Shame. Stamp set is Mixed Bunch from Stampin Up. Stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder then sponged Marina Mist ink, punched out and layered three together to look like a giant snowflake. I love the fact that a flower stamp set can be used for Christmas! Stamped a few little snowflakes, a crystal button and silver thread finish it off.

So you can see the layers!


  1. très jolie et élégante carte, sobre et chic, merci de jouer avec a 52CCT, a bientôt, biz

  2. Ooooooo...LOVE this CAS take, Pat! I never thought of using that flower image as a snowflake--brilliant!!! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT! :) HUGS and have a great rest of your week! Mynn xx

  3. This is so elegant Pat, I love the diagonal drift of pretty snowflakes! The white embossing on vellum was a fab choice for our paper flowers challenge and the cord and button in the centre of your bloom snowflake are the perfect finishing touches! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful card with us at 52 {C}CT, please join us again soon! Ruth x
