Every Snowflake is Different

In this card I used stamps from the new Chapel Road Artstamps sheets Snowflakes Everywhere and Snowflake Plate. Somehow, the snow seems much more appealing when it's stamped with beautiful stamps in the middle of a hot July. Snowflakes Everywhere is a wonderful background stamp. I stamped the image using a white paint dabber on a piece of cardstock. I then sprayed the background with mists made from distress ink and Perfect Pearls. This is one of Tim Holtz's techniques and it makes a gorgeous background. The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock and the edges were inked with antique linen distress ink. I used the Spellbinders fleur de lis rectangles die to create the backing panel.
