Challenge inspiration november

Hi Hermine here. Every year I make myself a promisse to start making Christmas cards in january, do one a week and at th end of the year you have a great stack, but as always, in november I think WHY didn't I keep my promisse to myself when I realise I didn;t start yet. So here I started up with one idea and ended with 3 cards, now we are talking :o)

step 1: I cut a snowflake out of a doble card on the right hand side.
step 2: take a seperate piece of paper colour with a turquoise spray ink, leave to dry. Then take a template with the circles and spray again, leave to dry. Sponge with Distress ink the ouside circle so the tips of the snowflake turn out darker.
step 3: take Memento Luxe Wedding dress and stamp Xmas Silhouette collage 19713 and stars19291.
step 4: glue the coloured card behind the snowflake and splatter some ink on the front of the double card. 

step 1: Because I still had the die-cut of the snowflake I deciced to use that as a mask, so put the snowflake on a double card on the right hand side and spray with turquoise spray in an dleave to dry.
step 2: put back on the snowflake and sponge with a few colours Distress ink.
step 3: Stamp with Memento Luxe Weddingdress Redwood Tress 19718 and a few times Fir Trees Silhouette 19723
step 4: Take Versamakr and stamp the Xmas silhouette Collage and the stars (on the right as well as on the left of the Xmas silhouette) and emboss with white embmossing powder.
step 5: splatter some water on the card and remove the water with a paper towel.

step 1: What was left was this awesome coloured snowflake and couldn't resist to make another card with so I stamped the Xmas Silhouette collage and the stars with Stazon Black.
step 2: spray some turqouise spray ink at the bottom of the card.
step 3: stamp with Versamark the Fir trees Silhouette twice and emboss with white embossingpowder.
step 4: Glue the snowflake in place.
