One of a Kind Snowflake

Although we’ve not had snow on the ground locally, many parts of the country do have a few snowflakes that have accumulated.  Snowflakes are a thing of wonder when you can see them  magnified, and yes they are each one of a kind. 

Our new challenge at Retro Rubber Blog Challenge is “It’s Winter”, and snowflakes fit the bill.  Please remember to use your Retro Rubber that is at least a year or older, let us know how long it’s been in your stash, and enter our challenge plus 9 others.

1.     The 1998 Peddlers Pack Snowflakes background is stamped with Memento Paris Dusk on glossy white card stock.  The image is trimmed to 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”.
2.     The “One of a Kind” sentiment by Mark’s Finest Paper in the Snowflakes 2014 set is one that I won in a challenge.  It is stamped in Versa Mark on white glossy card stock and heat embossed in clear embossing powder.  Memento Paris Dusk is sponged over the image and the white sentiment “pops”.  The sentiment is die cut with Spellbinders Fancy Tags and pressure embossed.
3.     Canson Silver paper is trimmed to 4 1/8” x 5 3/8” and is adhered to a white A2 cardstock base.  The snowflake background is adhered with dimensional adhesive as is the sentiment.

Please do come by and play along with us a Retro Rubber Blog Challenge!

I would like to share this clean and simple card with the following challenges:


  1. Neva, this is a really cool snowflake background stamp. I had to take a second look at my snowflake collection to see if any of them would leave a negative snowflake with an inked background... they don't. Love the sentiment technique too!!

  2. Neva, Your cards are always a thing of envy..no change here, this card is stunning, I cannot believe how old your stamp is!! I love the colour, with the odd white void peeking through. Cx

  3. Hello Neva: This snowflakes look like crystal, so beautiful, the color blue is lovely and it makes them shine even more.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Big Hugs,

  4. Oh, Neva, I can feel the cold from your bright snowy winter card from here! What a wonderful close-up of beautiful snowflakes! I almost think I am looking at them through a microscope. Love it!

  5. Oh, what a beautiful background! Great take on the sketch!

  6. Brrr...I am cold! I chuckled when I got ready to post this challenge - it has not been cold here - try 40's and 50's. So much for winter! Beautiful card!
