Fluffy Snowflake Card

I know, terrible name for this post, but you can’t really tell from the picture that this DSP is textured. The snowflake is actually a felt-like material raised onto the paper, part of the Christmas Cocoa DSP.

Card base is Rich Razzleberry textured card stock, layered with piece of the DSP. I wanted to keep it kind of simple but my Ice Circle Rhinestone Brads were screaming out to me so I added one in the center of the snowflake, with a 1/4″ Circle Punch of rich razzleberry behind it to give it added pop.

To finish off the card, I stamped “Merry Christmas” from Christmas Greetings (I love this stamp–it’s like the handwriting I always wanted to have) in Rich Razzleberry ink.

Inside, I layered the base with a piece of White card stock and stamped it with the other stamp in Christmas Greetings, perfect for inside sentiments.

Snow Buddies

I was really hoping I’d be able to earn this Level 2 stamp set–Snow Buddies–from the Mini catalog and I did! Someone placed an order with me and it bumped me up to the level 2 set.

This is a pretty simple card, but I’m trying to make it simple for Christmas cards because we all know how hard it is to have to make 50 complicated cards around the holidays–practically impossible.

I tried to use different colors than I normally use this time. I actually used Ballet Blue card stock and ink! I’ve never used Ballet Blue anything before. The images are stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White, colored in with Watercolor Pencils and blended using the Blender Pen. Again, to make it simple, I only colored a few spots on each snowman, just to give it enough pop.

The snowflakes are stamped in Baja Breeze and Ballet Blue ink. The sentiment is from Christmas Greetings, stamped in Ballet Blue and Not Quite Navy on top (I used the Stampamajig to get the correct placement). Along the side, I used a strip of Not Quite Navy card stock edged with the Scallop Edge Punch. The top layer is adhered to the base using dimensionals. Card base is Ballet Blue and Bashful Blue.
