Snowflakes and Silver... by Karla

It's that time of year again!

Handmade gifts, ornaments and cards have been in process, causing stress, grey hair and plenty of happiness and joy as Christmas Day approaches.

Come share your creations of gifts, cards, tags & decor!


Hello friends! Karla here today with another fun and festive project for this month's Dare - Snowflakes & Silver! How fitting for December, especially here in Canada where we've had snow off and on since October! Today, I'm sharing a Mitten Ornament project using lots of gorgeous Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and a cute pair of mittens diecut from chipboard. If you have chipboard lying around (ok, who doesn't...) don't forget that embossing powder is a fabulous way to alter it!

I really love the effect when melting a second layer of embossing powder over another colour! On this project I mixed the beautiful detailed Silver Dollar powder with the Mermaid Fin powder on the pretty wood veneer snowflakes, and with one of my favourites, Fractured Ice, on the mittens.

The silver pine cone charm was too cute not to tie on to the mitten string with a bit of silver thread! I think these mitts do look like they'd be warm and cozy on a frosty day!

On the back I used two beautiful cling stamps from the Emerald Creek Shop. I just love the script on the Season's Greetings stamp and the snow caps on the To/From stamp!

Here's a look at the VIDEO where you can get a good look at how I put it all together and watch the magic as I melt different embossing powders into each other!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you join us and enter your project for a chance to win. Have a wonderful crafty December, and a very Merry Christmas.
