World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop

Welcome to another Pinkies Blog Hop! As it's World Card Making Day today, we hope everyone will get some time to craft, and we've created some lovely projects to help inspire you to create your own beautiful card. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

Today's cards feature the Flurry of Wishes Bundle from the Holiday Catalogue. The girls in my card classes couldn't wait to get started on their Christmas cards so these are the cards we made in class last week.

For the first card I stamped the large snowflake images onto Whisper White card with Versamark and embossed with Silver Embossing powder and the smaller snowflakes with Soft Sky ink.

The sentiment has been stamped with Island Indigo ink. I matted the Whisper White onto Silver Foil Sheet and then onto Island Indigo card. The finishing touch was some Winter Wonderland Embellishments which are like little miniature snowflakes with a diamond in the centre.

The second card also has stamped snowflakes, this time I stamped with Island Indigo ink and punched the snowflakes out with the matching punch.

I created the back round by embossing  a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder before adding the snowflakes and greeting which is cut out from the Bitty Banners Die. I tied some Silver Cording Trim to the top of the card which picks up the silver from the Winter Wonderland Embellishments.

I hope you were inspired by my cards today and find even more inspiration as you continue onto Kim's blog to see what she has made.
