Birthday card with Ice Flake by Tim Holtz

Hello everyone, I'm here with the second project that I made for our January challenge over at the Country View Challenges. The theme is A Year To Sparkle And Shine. For my second project I chose the same background as for the first, a birthday card with Cozy Winter bear

My first project, my first card was made for my sister but this one was made for my daughter, Eszter who is turning 16! Another January birthday girl :-)

And now on to the preparation.

For the background I took a 300 gsm paper, the Sparkles&Christmas stamp set and a silver embossing powder and heat embossed a sparkle background.

Then I blended Tumbled Glass ink onto the whole surface and Faded Jeans to the edges. 

I cut out the Ice Flake from white paper, then from silver glitter paper. I cut out the big snowflake from blue glitter paper and the mini snowflake from silver glitter paper. I placed them on top of each other and glued them together but I put the glue just in the middle. In the end I glued a half pearl too in the middle.

The text was stamped on black cardstock with super fine white embossing powder. Don't forget to use the antistatic pouch!

Stampers Anonymous, Sparkles&Christmas stamp set by Tim Holtz (CMS324)

  1. Simply stunning! That background is one of my favourites and the addition of all the glitter paper border and sparkly snowflake is amazing 😀. I enjoyed your tutorial too! Thanks so much for the inspiration, this sure does sparkle and shine! Hugs Jo x
