So many of my friends are posting pictures of snow and I’m over here freaking out in my flip flops! I am so not a fan of Winter. I don’t snub it completely and still make cute wintery cards! Check out this beautiful layered snowflake card using the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper!!! It’s also on sale this month!!!! Only a few more days!
The different shades of blue and that hint of sparkle just make this card POP! I love it! It’s really a fairly simple card to create too which is a bonus since I make a lot of Christmas Cards!!!
I started with a Whisper White card base. Did you know that Stampin’ Up! has THICK Whisper White and Very Vanilla??? It is perfect for card bases to hold up a bit more and ink doesn’t bleed through! I love it! I stamped the greeting on the bottom in Balmy Blue from the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set! Next, I stamped one of the bigger snowflakes onto a scrap piece of Thick Whisper White and die cut it out! Normally, for a layering piece I wouldn’t use the Thick Whisper White but since snowflakes can be delicate, I thought this would be perfect and help it hold up better when popping it out of the die and handling it!
Taking a piece of regular Whisper White measuring 4″ x 4″, I embossed it with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. This is super subtle but yet adds that texture and dimension to the card. Next, I layered a piece of the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (2″ x 3″) onto the embossed piece and added it to the card.
For the focal piece, I added a small strip of Snowflake Splendor Ribbon across the center with a small dab of adhesive in the middle. Just enough to hold there for now because the snowflake will also be holding it in place! Then I took that die cut stamped snowflake and added it over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals! For some bling, I die cut another snowflake from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper and layered it on the snowflake with the Fine Tip Glue Pen! For some final bling, I placed a few Blue Adhesive Backed Gems on the card front!
Simple and fabulous! This card could be used for Christmas or even Winter birthdays and events.
