Hello, and welcome back to my blog. Today I’m very excited to showcase the new Snowflake from SSS Fun & Festive release. This die cut is so beautiful. I was happy to get this product simply because sometimes you may not have a lot of products to work with on a card and this die is a perfect way to show that less can be so much more. So lets get started!
I die cut about 8-10 snowflakes and set it aside. I really wanted a nice winter feel for this card so I grabbed my Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio and started distressing my Neenah Solar White cardstock. Starting with the darkest color, I distressed the bottom and worked my way upward. Once I got the blending I was what I was looking for, I spritzed it a few times with water. I wanted to give it the falling snow look and I thought it would look great with the cut out snowflakes I was going to add to the card.
Making sure my card was dry from spritzing, I placed my snowflakes in various area on my card. I trimmed down the ones that were hanging off the edges to give it a really fun look. Once I was done with my snowflakes, I stamped my sentiments on white cardstock and backed it with black. I feel it gives it a clearer look. After placing my sentiments, I finished my card off with pearl enamel dots.
That’s it! Very quick and easy holiday card that is uniquely made if you only have a few supplies on hand. I hope you find this tutorial helpful and gives you some great ideas for your project. Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you next time!
