Tumbling snow

So, I am reaching the point now where my Christmas stamps have had a thorough workout, and I am feeling the need to incorporate some non-Christmas stamps into my imagery. CASology’s cue word  ‘Silver’ came at a good time.

Week 125 - Silver

I decided to depict snowflakes tumbling out of a silver bucket. As I mentioned in a previous post, it doesn’t snow where I live, so you need to find creative ways to incorporate snow into your Christmas, if you want it!

Unfortunately, my camera skills, combined with a very silver bucket, creates quite a glare in that top left hand corner of the card. I really do like that particular embossing powder as it has a rich pewter quality, and looks great on cards (just not so easy to photograph!)

The embossing powder used for the snowflakes is silver glitter-flecked, so it adds a subtle glimmer there too.

And that’s my super CAS card for this week’s Challenge!

Thanks for visiting!

Supplies used:

Stamping up: Silver Slate cardstock; Short & Sweet stamp set.

Clearly Besotted: In Stitches Christmas stamp set

Waffle Flower: Hey Mr. stampset

Embossing Powders: Silver (Starfish Lane), White Silver Sparkle (All Night Media)

  1. Snow is such a ‘foreign concept’ to me Hazel… I don’t think I have ever made a card featuring it!
    Perhaps I should try!
    Loving you simple but effective design!

  2. This is awesome, Hazel! I love this totally unique and fun Christmas design and all that shine! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
