I love snowflakes, so when I set eyes on the Snow Is Glistening stamp set and Snowfall thinlits which are part of the Snowflake Showcase (the new time limited release from Stampin’ Up!) I just had to have them!
For my first card using this set, I opted to use the giant snowflake die as my focal point and to use the negative space as the background. It’s clean and simple, stylish and effective…..and dead easy to produce!
The Snowfall Thinlits die set is huge and includes loads of different sizes of snowflake, a snowflake flourish and some leaves and berries – 20 dies in all. To complete the showcase, there are two coordinating stamp sets; Snow Is Glistening, Happiness Surrounds, flocked paper and other accessories. This suite of dies and stamps is only available to purchase from 1-30 November so if you like the look of it, you’d better get your skates on!
For this card I used:
11½” x 4⅛” Balmy Blue card base, scored at 5¾”
5⅝” x 4” silver foil cardstock
5½” x 3⅞” thick Whisper White card
5½” x 3⅞” Whisper White card for the liner
A scrap of silver glimmer paper
SU! Snow Is Glistening stamp set
SU! Smoky Slate ink
SU! Snowfall thinlits
Cut out the large snowflake from the top half of the Whisper White card. Cut out one of the smaller snowflakes and stick in the centre of the large snowflake.
Stamp the greeting on the bottom half of the card with the negative space. Stamp some snowflakes from Snow is Glistening onto the liner and the envelope.
Stick the silver foil paper onto the card base and then adhere the negative die snowflake onto the silver foil paper.
Apply foam dimensionals to the solid part of the large snowflake.
Stick the snowflake into the centre of the negative space, not directly into the cut-out space but rotated onto the next ‘arm’ of the snowflake to add extra interest.
