For today’s card, I took inspiration from a tag created by Cathy Zielske. I knew it would be a great way to showcase this beautiful snowflake which I die cut using the limited edition Snowflakes Thinlits Dies from Stampin’ Up. They are only available through November 30 while supplies last. If you love snowflake dies, I would highly recommend this set because it’s absolutely gorgeous!
I started by doing all the die cutting. The snowflake was cut from a piece of Pixie Dust Sparkle Cardstock from Lawn Fawn. I also cut a panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies from Simon Says Stamp. I also cut a 1/2″ wide stripe of Balmy Blue cardstock. I ran it through my Big Shot also using the same Stitched Rectangle Die so I could get a matching stitched detail on each end.
On the white stitched rectangle panel, I lightly sponged some Balmy Blue ink onto the panel. I adhered the die cut snowflake in the middle of the sponged area using a bit of liquid glue. I didn’t added any glue to the outer tips of the snowflake so I could lift them just a bit for some added dimension.
For the sentiment, I stamped one of the two line sentiments from the Tiny Words Christmas stamp set from Simon Says Stamp on the Balmy Blue strip using VersaMark ink. I then heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I adhered it to the focal panel then matted the focal panel on a piece of silver foil cardstock.
I created an A2 top-folding card base using Balmy Blue cardstock. I adhered the matted focal panel to the card base using foam tape. For a bit of embellishment, I adhered to snowflake trinket to the middle of the die cut snowflake using a mini glue dot and that completed my card.
