Snowflake Wishes for AYSI 265

It's hard to believe that we're about to launch the last challenge of the year! I hope 2022 brings you all a  happier and healthier year than this one. 

We're finishing on a fun note. It's time for our beloved (and feared) Speed Challenge. 

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create a card with a snowflake theme in UNDER TEN MINUTES.

To be clear, the ten minutes does not include thinking time, getting out your gear or clean up. You can block up your stamps, set up your die cut machine, plug in the heat tool and lay out your papers. However, once you take a cut or ink up a stamp, the clock has to start.

I've gone for a simple black and gold combination - not so wise because metallics are so hard to photograph well - but I like the result.

I cut a piece of Brushed Metallic cardstock and embossed it with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. I die cut the large snowflake from So Many Snowflakes out of the Basic Black card front so that the embossed gold peeked through. 

Then I added another die cut snowflake in Brushed Metallic gold and a smaller one in Basic Black. The sentiment is gold embossed. 

I finished up with some Gilded Gems.

Total time taken: 8 minutes 52 seconds.

We'd love to see what you do with this challenge. Visit the As You See It Challenge site to see what the rest of the team have done and to link up  your entry.

  1. This is so dramatic and elegant in your black and gold colour combo Jan - and a beautiful showcase of that large snowflake diecut. It would have taken me 10 minutes just to poke out all the little pieces lol! Gorgeous!
