Snowflake Soiree

One of my favorite color combinations for Christmas cards is Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake.  This card is really striking in person, I don't know if it comes across that way over the computer!  I think if I were going to do this for my actual Christmas Card, I'd white emboss the snowflakes to really make them pop off the Crumb Cake color.



Here are the deets:

  1. 4 1/4 x 11 Cherry Cobbler cardstock, folded in half for base card.
  2. 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Crumb Cake cardstock.
  3. On Crumb Cake, stamp the large snowflake from Snowflake Soiree with White Craft Ink, then the smaller snowflake going diagonally across the front.  Let dry.
  4. Punch the end of the 1 1/4 x 2 3/4" Whisper White piece by placing the one end in thru the back of the 1 3/8" Circle punch and punching.
  5. Stamp Merry from Snowflake Soiree with Cherry Cobbler ink on the Whisper White piece.
  6. Cut small snowflake from Snow Flurry die with Red Glimmer Paper.
  7. Tie Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine thru middle sized Vintage Facet Button and place in center of snowflake with Mini Glue Dots.
  8. Add Rhinestones to centers of each of the snowflakes and randomly between.

Very clean and simple style of card…and easy to mass produce.  Leave off the button (use just the twine in the center of the snowflake), so it is mailable!

Beautiful card – great colors – and I agree about heat embossing the snowflakes.   TFS!
