Hi there! Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog sharing this fun snowflake themed Christmas card with a coordinating Christmas ornament to go with it! During the holidays I just love doing little sets like these. It makes it extra fun to give gifts or just pop in the mail together to brighten someone’s day!
All of the products I’m using today were just released earlier this week! So if you haven’t checked it out yet, you need to for sure! It’s bursting with amazing!!!
To start this project, I wanted to play with the snowflake stencil and also the layering snowflake dies…so I did. I used white Thermoweb Glitz Glitter Gel on dark blue cardstock with the snowflake stencil and set it aside to dry.
While that was drying I die cut some elements from the layered snowflakes dies. For the card, I cut the base from vellum, the large piece from white cardstock and the smallest layer from blue glitter paper in the winter glitter paper pad.
Next, I die cut the Merry Christmas from holographic paper and the shadow from white cardstock. I adhered the layers together with EZ Squeeze liquid adhesive but popped the sentiment up with foam squares and popped the snowflake up with foam squares as well.
To complete the card, I trimmed the snowflake background down by 1/8 inch on each side. This cleans up the excess glitz gel and gives it a nice white border from the card base. This panel is popped up with foam strips and then the snowflake is added to the center.
Here’s a closer look at one side of the ornament. I die cut the base piece from white cardstock twice. Then the snowflake outline from holographic paper twice. I used EZ Squeeze liquid adhesive once again to adhered the snowflakes to the shadow and then back-to-back so the whole thing is double-sided.
Finally I took out the sweet Polly and Pete Jolly set and stamped each critter, coloring them in with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out, added foam squares and popped one on the center of each side.
I punched a hole in the top of the snowflake and threaded some red baker’s twine through it, tying a knot so it’s ready to hang.
For finishing touches on the critters, I added glossy accents to things like beaks and noses, and unicorn Stickles to their cheeks.
I can’t even pick a favorite product today! They are all so much fun to use and I seriously need some dedicated crafting time because I am itching to make a bundle of these cute snowflakes! They will be everywhere for sure!
