Today I have some snowflake themed card inspiration to share with you. Snowflake themed cards are some of my favorite kind of cards to make. They not only work for the Christmas season, but also for any occasion that occurs during the winter months.
I hope that you enjoy the cards I have to share today. Here’s my first one.
- I love the copper metallic look of this card. I achieved it by using Copper Embossing Powder (141636) and Copper Foil Sheets (142020).
- Although this card has a Christmas greeting, it could also work very well for a birthday card.
- Stamp sets used: Star of Light (142110); Snowflake Sentiments (Wood 144817, Clear 144820); Seasonal Chums – sentiment (Wood 144945, Clear 144948).
- Other products used: Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372); 1/4″ Copper Trim (144179)
My next three cards all feature the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (144686). Here’s the first card.
- This is a simple card to create. The focal image is the textured snowflake.
- Glossy cardstock was used for the card front/snowflake piece. Here’s a trick to keep the glossy cardstock from cracking when embossing….use a scrap piece of regular weight copy paper in the embossing folder WITH the glossy card stock. Run them through the Big Shot together.
- Sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (Wood 128748, Clear 127802).
My next card features another technique to try with the snowflake embossing folder.
- I used VELLUM cardstock (101856) with the Winter Wonder embossing folder. Stampin’ Up! vellum cardstock is really thick and can withstand the pressure of the Big Shot. You won’t have success with this technique if you use a lightweight vellum however.
- Attaching vellum so the glue doesn’t show through can be tricky. Your best bet is to camouflage the glue. On this card, I attached four glue dots (one in each corner) and then covered them with a silver foil (132178) die cut shape. (Eastern Medallions Thinlits, 143725).
- A center Rhinestone Basic Jewel (144220) and a Mini Tinsel Trim bow (144636) add a bit of sparkle.
Here’s my final snowflake themed card inspiration project. It was inspired by a card I’d seen created by Tanja Kolar.
- I used the DE-BOSSED side of the snowflake for my card front. I also chose to only use a partial off-center snowflake image to add some interest to the card.
- My focal point was created by using a cluster of die cut pieces. I used dies from the following sets: Pretty Pines Thinlits (141851), Starlight Thinlits (141840), Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits (144670).
- This card can be used for ANY occasion, and I purposely didn’t add a sentiment. I will add that when I decide to use it.
Well, there you have my snowflake themed card inspiration for today. Hope that you enjoyed my cards. I always appreciate it when you leave a comment to let me know you visited. Thanks!!
