For these cards I used:
- Stampendous Detailed White Embossing Powder
- Stampendous Detailed Gold Embossing Powder
- Pan Pastels 930.5 Bronze
- Pan Pastels 920.5 Silver
- Stampendous Delicate Snowflakes
- Stampendous Delicate Snowflakes dies
- Gina K Designs Let it Snow stamp set
- Elizabeth Craft Designs Stand Up Helper Set 2
- Silver Glitter Lines 7020
- Recollections background stamp
To make these cards, I stamped the largest snowflake from the Detailed Snowflakes stamp set and the sentiment with Versamark. I added Detailed Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.
Like the previous cards, I stamped the snowflake and sentiment with Versamark. I then used Bronze Pan Pastels and covered the card. Pan Pastels sticks to Versamark more than to the card base (there is a shimmer to the background that can't be seen in the photo. I then sealed the Pan Pastels. There is a slight difference between the card using Pan Pastels and Embossing Powder.
The Pan Pastels card has a much flatter appearance. Here is a sample of both side by side with the Embossing Powder on the left and the Pan Pastels on the Right).
For the next version of the card, I stamped the snowflake and sentiment with Versamark, the added Detailed White embossing powder and heat set. I used the Stand Up Helper Snowflake and the Silver Glitter lines to complete this card.
For the last version of the card, I stamped only the snowflake with Versamark, added detailed white embossing powder and heat set. I then cut out the snowflake with the coordinating die. For the background, I stamped the Recollections stamp with Versamark on white card stock. I then covered the card stock with Silver Pan Pastels. The Pan Pastels "sticks" to the Versamark and leaves a slight shimmer to the rest of the card stock. The white embossed snowflake was added to finish the card.
