Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I pulled out the versatile Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle for today’s card to show a cozy homespun snowflake Christmas card. I paired the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle with the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the sketch we are using:
I started by stamping the front of a Seaside Spray card base with the large snowflake cluster stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes stamp set using Seaside Spray ink. I cut a panel of the Plaid Tidings designer series paper with one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it to a Rococo Rose mat. I popped the layered designer series paper on the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the large snowflake from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Seaside Spray ink on a panel of Whisper White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the second largest snowflake in Rococo Rose ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut out the medium detailed snowflake from Seaside Spray and layered all the snowflakes together, adhering them with liquid glue. I added light blue adhesive backed gems to the snowflake.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Seaside Spray ink on Whisper White. I cut it out with the Stitched Rectangles Dies using the two step die cutting method. I adhered the label to the card front with Stampin’ Seal and decorated it with another blue adhesive backed gem. I popped the layered snowflake on with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season photopolymer stamp set in Rococo Rose ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes stamp set in the corners and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Plaid Tidings DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
This Christmas card reminds me of a warm fleece blanket – the perfect thing for a cold Christmas morning!
