Can you tell I was having fun playing with the Bleach Technique? Here are a couple more holiday cards using it. I love how it looks different on different colors of card stock. For this card I stamped the snowflakes fro the Serene Snowflakes stamp set with bleach on Night of Navy Card stock. The show up almost a crumb cake color! How cool is that?
To make the rest of the card I used a crumb cake card base and attached some snowflakes cut out with the big shot (Northern Frost Decorative Strip die) and added them onto the card. I also added on a bitty clear button for some added detail. Along the bottom of the image is a strip of bashful blue paper punched out using the Lace Ribbon Border punch. The Sentiment is from the set Sincere Salutations and was punched out with the large oval punch.
Here's another variation using another piece of the Night of Navy Card stock with bleached snowflakes. This time I used a white card stock base and layered a piece of soft suede card stock embossed with the Framed Tulips embossing folder over it. This made a perfect frame for my snowflake piece. I added on some ribbon and the sentiment from the Many Merry Wishes stamp set. and all done! A beautiful simple card.
