Pen and ink drawn snowflakes embellished with Lumiere brand acrylics (supersparkle for accent) and added EZglitz crystals and Rhinestuds, plus some jewelry pieces. Most of the dots were applied with the tip of a wire cake tester. The birds and lower snowflake center were made with a paper punch.

Oh, Pat, what a beautiful and delicate card. You sure do have 'the touch'. Did you buy the jewelry pieces especially for cardmaking, or are you recycling here?

We don't ever have snowflakes where I live in Australia but the weather is cool right now as it is winter, so your snowflakes fit right in with our season! I know it is very hot weather where you are in August so hope playing with snowflake art helps you feel cooler :)

I must break out my shimmer paint and rhinestones. Christmas is coming, after all!

Thank you again for sharing and have a crafty day.

Susan

PS: Readers may want to add a little glitz and glimmer to cards using some Heat Embossing techniques, or try mixing shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle to make a night sky background.

Snowflake card jewelry accents

Thank you for your lovely comments. I used pieces of broken jewelry I had on hand. I made about a dozen of these (all different) for friends and family last year. One is on display at the fabric store where I buy the Lumiere paints, crystals and rhinestuds. Need to get started soon on this Christmas!
