Stitched Snowflake Dies, Bright Baubles, Christmas Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Today I thought I'd play with the "Stitched Snowflakes" dies. I thought they were just adorable and I LOVE snowflakes!  So here's what I came up with.

I feel like I'm working with very limited Christmas supplies. I did not order any Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP). I had gotten some in the Sale-a-Bration and that was it. I don't know what I was thinking. So I am going to have to get creative.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  On top of that is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock.  

I cut a 1" x 5" strip of Basic White card stock and I took my blending brush and lightly scrubbed in some Pool Party ink.  Then I took the snowflakes image from the "Bright Baubles" set and stamped them on the piece. I had stamped off once before stamping on the piece and then I stamped one more time before I inked it up again only to stamp off and repeat!  I also took the blending brush and brushed along the edges of that strip to highlight them a little more. I taped it on top of the 3-3/4" x 5" piece using snail tape.  I taped it about 3/4" from the left side edge.

The word "Joy" is from the "Bright Baubles" set and was stamped using Pool Party ink

I die cut the largest snowflake using Basic White card stock.  Then I colored it using my Wink of Stella pen.  It doesn't show up on the snowflake in the photo but in real life it's very sparkly and pretty. It's got such a soft sparkle.

The tips of the snowflake were colored using the blending brush. I also took a paint brush with Pool Party ink on it and brushed it on the tips of the inner part of the snowflake.  I set the snowflake in place with a small white Dimensional and that was it.

This is a very quick and easy card to make. I can see myself making more of these!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Christmas card,

For limited supplies ...... You card is PERFECT. LOVE the inking on the edges of the paper behind the snowflakes.......It helps the snowflake POP off the card.
