Snowflake Winter's Butterfly Card - 52 {C}CT Nov Technique Challenge

Louise has set a fab technique challenge for us at 52 {C}CT this week, the acrylic block technique.  You ink up an acrylic block, mist it with water and press the block onto CS - so easy and a great way to create a background.


I cut a panel of Whisper White CS and used three different sized acrylic blocks with Pool Party and Smoky Slate inks to create my background.   I stamped the snowflakes and the sentiment and popped up the central elements of the two larger snowflakes.  I layered the white panel onto a Pool Party mat, added the silver ribbon and bow and mounted onto a Bermuda Bay A6 card base.  I punched two silver foil snowflakes to go next to the sentiment and sprinkled on some aqua gems to complete the card front.


Here's the inside - I do love layered stamping! 

 A flurry of snowflakes decorates the front of the envelope. 

I hope you'll play along with us at 52 {C}CT this week and make a Christmas card using the fun technique, I'd love to see what you make!
