Stitched Snowflakes, Penguin Place, Christmas Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Today I thought I'd make a snowflake card. Still no snow on the ground here in central Minnesota but it is a bit chilly.  And I know the snow will come.  What we had a couple of weeks ago here melted. What the people in the upper part of Minnesota got a couple of weeks ago they still have! They will get more too! SO for today I'll look at snowflakes on paper.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock for the top layer.

I took a 1-7/8" circle and I placed it behind the top layer piece so I could see where center was. Then I stamped the words from the "Penguin Place" set using Real Red ink. 

The snowflakes were colored using my Wink of Stella pen, (something I'm going to be adding to my Christmas wish list!) and I colored each snowflake to give it some sparkle. 

I have a lightbox so I set my front layer piece on it and slid the 1-7/8" circle behind it, making sure the words were centered.  Then I glued on each snowflake around the circle. You could lightly draw the circle with a pencil but I think it would be a little difficult to erase once the snowflakes are in place. You'd have to be really careful at the placement of the snowflakes to cover the lines. But it can be done. Anyway, I used my lightbox and glued each one around the circle. I removed the circle and added Dimensionals to the back of the piece and set it in place on top of the card base. 

Tiny crystal rhinestones were added to the center of each snowflake and the card was done.

This is a very fun, quick and easy card to make.

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