Alcohol Ink Blended Snowflake card | 12 Weeks of Christmas Week 12

Hello everyone and thank you so much for stopping by to check out my last Christmas card in my 12 weeks of Christmas Series. I hope you aren't getting tired of my snowflake cards lol. Let's jump right into how I made this card.

I have a 5 x 7-inch piece of Silver Sparkle Alcohol ink cardstock and I am using two colours of Tim Holtz Alcohol ink, Raspberry and Patina. I also used Blending Solution and 99% Isopropital Alcohol to help the ink move. It does take some patience to get a blend that you like but once you get there they can be so stunning. Once I had a background I like I set it aside to work on the snowflakes.

I have three snowflake dies from Simon Says Stamp the Lea, Grace, and Mandala. I cut out several of each as I wanted to layer them up to stand out more against my background. I also cut out two of the Grace snowflake die with white vellum to add a bit more dimension to my card. I layered up the snowflakes using small dabs of liquid glue so that I could move the pieces into place before they adhere.

Then I adhered my snowflakes down to my background and added a few gems to fill in some of the extra space. If you would like a more in-depth look at how I made this card please check out the video below, I also have a full supplies list below the video if you want to see exactly what I used. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful holiday!!
