snowflake gradient ink card

Use ink to create a pretty background for your Christmas cards, then die-cut the snowflakes and add a sentiment.
Step 1

Begin with a plain white A7 card. Using the dauber, rub it around on the brighter blue ink pad, then using a circular motion, apply the ink to the center of the card, working your way out.

Step 2

When you have a large circle of brighter blue on the card, rub the dauber onto the darker blue ink pad and continue adding the ink in a circular motion to the rest of the card, blending it as you go. Set aside to dry.

Step 3

Using the snowflake dies, die-cut the snowflakes from white cardstock using your Big Shot machine.

Step 4

Now adhere the large snowflake to the middle of the card.

Step 5

Layer a Silver glitter snowflake on top of the white one, then layer the smaller white snowflakes on top of the Silver.

Step 6

Add a gem to the middle of the snowflakes.

Step 7

Stamp "Let it Snow" onto a piece of white cardstock using blue ink and cut it out.

Step 8

Cut a piece of Silver shimmer cardstock about ½" [1.27 cm] wide and adhere it across the bottom about ½" [1.27 cm] from the bottom.

Step 9

Using a foam square, adhere the sentiment to the middle of the Silver strip.
