Clean and Simple Saturday - Festive Christmas

Okay, I know what you're thinking..."A RED snowflake???" Yep. Who says snowflakes can't be red? Is that written down anywhere? Nope, okay then, a very chipper and RED snowflake it is! lol

A funny story about this snowflake....I had this card all designed in my head. I was going to mix Cherry Cobbler Emobssing Powder with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to make my RED snowflake shimmer but when I reached for my Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder it was no where to be found! WHAT?! I was sure I had ordered turns out it is one of only two I don't own. Figures! So, I improvised! I stamped the image in Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink, then again in Versamark Ink. Then I sprinkled Heat & Stick Powder over it, heat set it with my Heat Tool, and then added some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter and set it again. A little more work than I had anticipated but it sure came out nice and sparkly!

I also heat embossed the sentiment with White Embossing Powder to make sure it popped of the card. I know it isn't fair to have favorites, but...I think this one IS my favorite!

I popped my snowflake up with Stampin' Dimensionals to give it a bit more wow...and of course the Large Rhinestone jewel is the crowning touch :)

I realize that while I do stamp frequently on the inside of the card, I am terrible about taking pictures of them...both the outside and inside sentiments are from the More Merry Messages stamp set. I highly recommend this stamp set, it is very versatile! This set is actually a carry over from last year so it can only be seen online.

The snowflake is from the Snow Day stamp set, I just thought it added a little 'something'.

Thanks for stopping by...please let me know what you think about my RED snowflake (!) and enjoy your Saturday, I intend to spend mine decorating for Christmas!
