Stampin' Up!'s Merry Snowflakes - Card from the Catalog


Hi.  Welcome to my blog!  Today's card is one I CASE'd from Stampin' Up!'s July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.  You can find it on p. 13.  The catalog version of this card uses Misty Moonlight Cardstock and ink.  It also uses Brushed Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and Wonderful Gems.  I chose to use Night of Navy Cardstock and ink for my card, with Silver Foil Specialty Paper and Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  

Card Base ~ Night of Navy Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 5-3/4" x 2"
Snowflakes ~ Silver Foil Specialty Paper* ~  2-1/2" x 6" (2 strips) - 
*IF you are using an Adhesive Sheet, I recommend placing it on the back of the Silver Foil before cutting it into strips.
Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

  1. Use a Blending Brush to add a layer of Nigh of Navy ink to Layer 1.  Make the middle darker and fade out to the edges.  Use the Heat Tool to dry the ink a bit. 
  2. Stamp 'Season's Greetings' with Versamark ink to the center of Layer 1.  Cover with white embossing powder, tap off the excess and set with the Heat Tool. 
  3. Cut out these snowflakes in silver, with the Stitched Snowflakes Dies and the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. (The mini machine works great for this one) 
  4. Adhere the snowflakes to the card front as shown, by either peeling off the adhesive sheet backing or using Liquid Glue.  
  5. Place Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of Layer 1.  Place the left bottom corner along the left edge of the card and the right upper corner on the right edge of the card, as shown.  Turn the card over and trim off the extra Basic White CS that is hanging off the edge. 
  6. Add the Rhinestones, as shown. 

For the inside layer, add a light layer of Night of Navy ink to the corner with your Blending Brush.  Then, adhere the Basic White Cardstock to the inside of the card.  Finish by adhering the snowflake to the corner, over the Night of Navy. 

Thanks for visiting my blog!  I hope you are inspired to create something wonderful!

Happy Stamping!
