Silver Snowflakes

It's December 1st today...24 DAYS TIL CHRISTMAS....OH MY!!!   How the months and days have flown by, hope all who celebrated had a wonderful Thanksgiving...now it's hurriedly on to Christmas!!  I have to give credit for today's post to the wonderfully creative and gifted Bridget Finlay...I saw THIS card on Splitcoaststampers last week while looking at their clean and simple challenge, LOVED IT, and HAD to Case it!!  I thought, "I would love to try this with one of my wonderful snowflake dies, but in silver...and I've always loved silver with teal...so here's what I made...
 I die cut the  Simon Says Stamp snowflake and then pressed it into a versamark pad, then covered with silver embossing powder and heat embossed.  I repeated that twice more for a thick, smooth look and finish.  The heart that is in the center is a metal stick on heart that has ALSO been embossed with silver powder twice, as I wanted the finish and look to match the snowflake.  I attached heart with a glue dot and the snowflake to the card with a single adhesive dot, so it would be easy to take off, the silver string  (from Stampin Up) goes over the top and is attached to the back...could use as an ornament or on a window:)  The sentiment is another wonderful sentiment from the small set from Simon Says Stamp, Holiday Hellos.  Here's a close up of the silver embossed sentiment.
 THEN...on my photo app, it has an effects section, and one of the effects showed the teal card in red...it was called Alien Skin effect, go figure....but I LOVED IT IN RED...so I made another...
I had SUCH FUN making these...I actually made 2 of each...fun and so simple...and I THINK...so pretty:)!! Thank you so much, Bridget for sharing your beautiful creativity with me and others:)!! Hope you have a sweet Sunday and a wonderful week:)!!  HUGS!!  Lisa
