- Here’s another quick little card for Christmas that’s simple enough that you can make several of them in no time!
- Stamp the snowflakes background on glossy white cardstock with the Versamark ink and clear emboss with Kaleidascope (or detail clear) powder. Try not to overheat the Kaleidascope powder because it will change colors and flatten on the paper.
- Stamp the text with rainbow ink on glossy paper and quickly add the embossing powder. Heat and set aside.
- Sponge inks from the rainbow pad all over the snowflakes image. Wipe of excess ink with a tissue or paper towel.
- Trim the stamped images and all the other panels to size as shown. Edge the Glitter Dots panel with the silver Krylon pen. Sponge some of the blue ink around the edges of the text panel.
- Add silver glitter glue dots to the centers and outer edges of the snowflakes as desired and random dots on the text panel.
- After the glitter glue has dried, assemble the text panel layers and, if you’d like, add a chipboard panel cut slightly smaller than the Crystal Blue panel.
- This is the assembled card without the snowflakes. You could just stop it here and still have a very nice card.
- I decided I had to use my new snowflake punch and then I needed to add something to those, so I added some dots punched from a scrap of the glitter paper. You could also add either silver glitter glue or even flat back crystals to the centers instead if you don’t have that size punch.
- Sign the back and you’re done. This design can be as simple or as elegant as you want to make it. I think a little ‘Bling’ in the center of the snowflakes would be a great touch! Happy Stampin’ and Happy Holidays!
