A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

Red Snowflake

I'm here with a card for Merry Monday.  This week's challenge is:

I made a CAS card:

I was inspired by some dp I had with a rich red background and snowflakes. I cut a square of it for my background.

I die cut a large snowflake out of dark red glitter cs, and glued it onto the focal panel that was cut out with a stitched die cut. I added a stamped and heat embossed sentiment, and popped the square up on fun foam.

Normally I only like snowflakes in white or pale blue or silver, but now that I've done this card, I really like it!

Stamps - Penny Black sentiment
Ink - Versafine Crimson Red
Paper - white cs, Paper Studio dp, dark red glittet cs
Size - 4.75" square
Accessories - snowflake die, Lil Inkers stitched square die, embossing powder, fun foam
