Christmas in Red

I used the same snowflake die and stamp for these cards and by changing the technique I got two different Christmas cards. 

For the card on the left I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then sponged on my colours in a Ombre look but dark on ends to a light centre. I die cut the panel with the stitched rectangle die and mounted to the card on foam tape before attaching the silver glitter snowflake, which is also on foam dots.

For the card on the right I stamped the image on my card base using the different colours in an Ombre look from dark to light at the top of the card. I added a double layer of the snowflake, with both layers having a layer of Wink of Stella on them. They are also attached with foam dots. 

Both cards received sequins, the right card having more than the left. I made both cards at the same time, so the two cards were done quickly and with different looks I think.
