Such a simple design, but so effective. I love it when one of those finds me when I'm working. Serendipity!

Let’s Get Started:

Card Base: 4.25 x 11, scored and folded at 5.5

Border: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8

Card Face: 4 x 5.25

Red Glitter Cardstock: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8

Card Face:

  • I secured the stencil to the card face with Mint Tape, grabbed a couple of blue inks and set to work.

  • I used a very soft blue-grey ink for my first layer, with a very light hand to go over the snowflakes.

  • I came back in with a mediium blue ink and a bit more pressure, adding ink only to the center of each snowflake with a small detail brush.

  • I used a snowflake die that cut a negative impression into the center of the card face.


  • I glued the glitter card stock to the card base, and the card face on top of that.

  • I added a red gem to the center of the large snowflake, and a tiny red gem to the center of the 6 snowflakes that surrounded it.

Final thoughts:

I am really happy with this card, I love both the design and the non-traditional colours.
