Chasing Pinterest - Christmas in July Day 4

We're 10 Days into July and I've been in a card making frenzy!  The downside?  I'm behind on blog posts a bit, but it's all good.


These cards are inspired by this pin from I'm in Haven.  


Of course, I put my spin on this bit of inspiration.  The red on red didn't work for me, I opted to use a pale grey card base.  I used the Air Vent die from Simon Says Stamp to create the vent holes (this die is no longer available).  I stamped "Merry Christmas" along the vents in VersaMark ink and embossed it with WOW Bright White Embossing Powder.


The snowflakes are die cut from white cardstock, covered in VersaMark ink and then embossed with WOW Hologram Embossing Powder.  Two coats of this embossing powder creates beautiful sparkly snowflakes.


Now let's pull this card together.  I mounted the red panel onto the pale grey card base.  This helped the vents pop a bit more than they did when I tried the red on red look.


Four snowflakes were attached to each card using Multi Medium Matte.  I left the edges free for a bit of a texture effect.  Then I added a gem to the middle of each snowflake for that added bit of glimmer.


The end result is a stunning set of four red and cheerful cards for the coming holiday season.
