Sorry all. More snowflakes for you.
This card, although it looks like it is very delicate and maybe fussy to create, is super easy. All thanks once again to the wonderful snowflake dies that come in the So Many Snowflakes set on page 38 of the current mini catalog.
When I received this particular set, although there are so many beautiful snowflake dies, this one especially intrigued me. It had a HOLE in the center, surrounded by nifty stitching and SNOWFLAKES! I love how the snowflakes overlapped parts of the opening.
When the open portion is popped up over the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals, the whole card, well, POPS! Look at that wonderful dimension.
I wanted to add a bit more of the snowy things around that frame portion, so I stamped some of the smaller snowflakes that come in the coordinating stamp set, Snowflake Wishes, in VersaMark ink all around the edges. This gave it a tone on tone look that was perfect without overwhelming the card.
I actually popped up a couple of the layers.
Just a close up of the focal point.
Following I will provide a tutorial on how to recreate this card.
Whisper White cardstock
Seaside Spray cardstock
Snowflake Wishes stamp set (page 38 of the Mini Catalog)
Winter Woods stamp set (page 61 in the Annual Catalog)
Seaside Spray ink
So Many Snowflakes Dies (page 38, Mini Catalog)
Die Cutting/Embossing machine
Fold a 3 3/4" x 11" piece of Whisper White cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.
Stamp the sentiment in the center of a 2 7/8" x 4 5/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock in Seaside Spray ink. Set this aside momentarily.
Take a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock that measures 3" x 4 3/4", and, centering the snowflake die with the opening on this piece, run it through your die cutting machine. Using VersaMark ink, stamp the small clusters of snowflakes around the edges of this piece. Use the Heat Tool to dry the ink so you can continue working.
Set the die cut piece over the sentiment piece so the words are centered inside the opening and adhere it in place.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere thisi piece to a 3 1/2" x 5 1/4" piece of Seaside Spray cardstock.
Using a few more Stampin' Dimensionals, add this to the white card base.
