Sparkling Collection from Spellbinders

Hello friends!
I am back with anther project with Spellbinders Sparkling Collection.
This die called Radiant Snowflake Die
I love the ease of using a single die and can always create something unique and creative.

Merry Christmas 

For the snowflake, I used Altenew Washi Tape as the pattern paper nad die cut it three times. You then have three beautiful snowflakes! 

Merry Christmas -001

Now, we need a dramatic background. I used Altenew Ink Sprays (you can use Distress Oxide or Distress Ink Spray) and only inked up the top left corner.

Once dry, I positioned the three snowflake and  added the sentiment from Snowflake Splendor (another GREAT set of dies).

Due to Covid 19, it has been a few stressful months world wide. I am thankful that we are continuing to keep safe and healthy. Last weekend, my whole family attended our long-time family friend's daughter's wedding. Stephanie was Amanda's preschool friend and was the bridesmaid at the wedding.  I am sharing this photo from that happy occasion.

Hope you are having a great day.

Love your effervescent watercolor card!! The snowflake is so elegant and effortless!! Congratulations on getting to see your family together. Stay well my friend!! Missing my close friends getting together for cropping in my house due to Covid we aren’t and having family members moving back in with me due to unemployment. I’m working PT and having physical therapy again. Praying for the world to all be healthy again!!

The Galaxy washi tape makes gorgeous snowflakes! I love how you used the sprays to accent the snowflakes. So, so pretty!
What a wonderful picture of your family. I was so wonderful that you all could have that special event and the family time together.

Lovely card. It must have been inspired by the blue you all wore to the wedding. Anyway, that's the way the color looks on my screen.
