Winter Snowflakes

Happy Winter!  Kristina H here with a bit more winter inspiration.  Christmas may be over but winter has just begun!


I just love how this card turned out and it was made with only two dies!  The Memory Box Dancing Snowflake Sqaure die is just gorgeous!  How can you not make a lovely card when you have this die in your arsenal?

The snowflake sqaure is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and I die cut it out of a thick white cardstock.  I ran it through my die cut machine a few times so I could pick up the embossing details.  I  used a sponge to add some teal ink to the raised areas to give them a bit more definition.  I then went over the entire sqaure piece with a Wink of Stella glitter gloss pen.  I set it aside to dry completely.

Now to work on the rest of the card.  I found some lovely patterned papers is my stash.  Both of the pieces I picked are from the Echo Park Hello Winter paper pad.  The gray dotted paper is cut to 4 3/8" x 4 3/8".  This was glued to a piece of white cardstock cut to 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".  I'm not done with the layers yet!  The blue layer is cut to 5" x 5" and then finally the white card base which is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".

I grabbed my trusty Zig 2 way glue pen and applied it liberally to the back of the snowflake piece.  Then I glued it on top of the gray dotted paper.  The sentiment is an Impression Obession die called Warmest Wishes.  I cut it out four times from teal cardstock.  I used the Zig 2 way glue pen again to glue all of the layers together and then onto the gray dotted paper.  I did go over the words with Wink of Stella pen as well.  For the final touches I added three different sizes of silver gems from Pretty Pink Posh.

  1. Very pretty. It's been quite warm here in Florida this past week (80's), but I love it. Not quite the snow person although it sure is pretty from a distance.
