Serene Snowflakes


Another card that fits the non-traditional color theme over on Latenightstampers!  My upline received a similar card from her upline and I loved it, so had to CASE it!  It uses the Tulipe Bigz Die (ON SALE NOW CLICK FOR DETAILS HERE!) as an accent.  The Tulipe is cut and the center part and Melon Moss part opens up and the Bermuda Bay flap folds down.  Great to hold a gift card!

The base is Sahara Sand at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 1 3/4 and 7 1/4.  The designer paper is Thoroughly Modern.  The large snowflake from Stampin' Up!'s Serene Snowflakes was stamped in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White, then the trio snowflakes stamped in Melon Mambo.  I layered the Whisper White on Melon Mambo card stock.  Peace on Earth from Four Holidays Stamp Set was inked with Soft Suede Classic Ink.  I added a pink Ice Circle Rhinestone brad in the center.  The Tulipe Bigz Die was cut on the Big Shot with Soft Suede. 

I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and a sponge dauber all around the edges of the layers, on the snowflakes and on the Tulipe diecut!  It is so pretty in real life.  (AND, good news!…Shimmer Paint will continue to be available as a write-in item in our catalog!  Yeah!  I love that stuff!)

In the second picture, I left the bottom folded up so you could see how the Tulipe diecut was placed, but the flap actually folds down.

Isn't this a fun card?  I'll be using that Tulipe die again that way!

 Well, still trying to catch up on everything for Christmas.  I did get almost all my shopping done…only one more gift to get.  Yeah!
