Christmas Snowflake

Here is the sixth gift that I created for the 12 Days of Christmas Swap!

Stamps: All Holidays (retired)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Bashful Blue
Ink: Crumb Cake, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Snowflake die, Northern Flurries strip die, Decorative Label punch, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Dazzling Details, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Glimmer Brad, Stampin' Dimsnionals, Stampin' Sponge

The card base is Whisper White card stock cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". A piece of Crumb Cake card stock was cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and was adhered to the card front. Next a piece of Whisper White card stock was cut at 3 3/4" x 5" and was run through the Big Shot in the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Crumb Cake ink was sponged onto the card stock to bring out the texture. This panel was adhered to card front.

A piece of Whisper White and a piece of Crumb Cake card stock was cut at 4" x 4-1/2" and both pieces were run through the Big Shot on the Snowflake die. A scrap of Bashful Blue card stock was run through the Big Shot on the Northern Flurries strip die to cut out the small snowflake. The large snowflakes were lightly sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake ink. Dazzling Details was added to the Whisper White snowflake to give it some glimmer, this was allowed to dry. The snowflakes were then stacked together and the Paper Piercer and Mat Pack were used to pierce a hole in the center where a Glimmer Brad was added. The snowflake was adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The greeting from All Holidays was stamped in Bashful Blue ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock and was punched out with the Decorative Label punch. The edges were sponged with Crumb Cake ink, then it was adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals and Dazzling Details were added to the "Merry" portion of the greeting. This card has a beautiful vintage feel and still sparkles.

This card was cased from Lee Conrey's beautiful card which you can find HERE.
