Sparkly Snowflake

Here is the second card from the December Make and Take. I just love snowflakes and I wanted to share a really special sparkly one in this card. Take a look:



Stamps: Four the Holidays
Card Stock: Whisper White, Pool Party
DSP: Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: Island Indigo
Accessories: Pool Party Ruffled ribbon, Snow Burst embossing folder, Ticket corner punch, Snowflake punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals

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 Whisper White card stock was cut at 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”. All but approximately 1” of the cardstock was inserted into the Snow Burst embossing folder and was run through the Big Shot. The greeting from Four the Holidays was stamped on the bottom smooth portion in Island Indigo ink. This was adhered onto a 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Pool Party card stock. A piece of Pool Party Ruffled ribbon was wrapped around the panel and tied into a knot. This panel was adhered onto the card front.

A piece of Pool Party card stock was cut at 2-3/4” x 2-3/4”. The corners were punched with the Ticket corner punch. A piece of Silver Glimmer paper was cut at 2-1/4” x 2-1/4” and was adhered in the center of the Pool Party card stock. Next a piece of Whisper White card stock was cut at 2-1/2” x 2-1/2”. The corners were punched with the Ticket Corner punch. Then the Snowflake punch was used to punch a snowflake from the center of the Whisper White card stock. This Whisper White card stock was adhered on top of the Silver Glimmer paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This panel was adhered onto the card front with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.


The negative of the snowflake reveals the shimmery paper without the hassle of trying to punch the snowflake out of glimmer paper and it adds dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!
