There is nothing more beautiful than freshly fallen snow sparkling and shimmering in the sunlight after a snowstorm! Today’s card captures all of that beautiful shimmer and sparkle! I used the Christmas Lights Stamp Set, Twinkling Lights Dies and the Wonderful Snowflakes to create this card. And lots of Wink of Stella, of course! The sentiments are from the Sweet Candy Canes Stamp Set. This simple two-toned card makes an elegant statement. Unfortunately, it is difficult to capture all of the sparkle in a photo but trust me…it’s there and it’s beautiful!
I started by adhering a white cardstock panel to a Night of Navy card base. I then adhered two Wonderful Snowflakes to the card front – one in the upper left corner and one in the lower right corner. The white Wonderful Snowflakes are iridescent and sparkle all on their own!
I used the large snowflake dies from the Twinkling Lights Dies set to die cut a snowflake from white cardstock. Two dies are used together to create the single snowflake on the card front. Once the snowflake was die cut, I used a sponge dauber and Balmy Blue ink to blend ink on the snowflake. I concentrated the ink on the outside edges of the snowflake and softly blended ink towards the center of the snowflake. The entire snowflake was then dusted with Wink of Stella…more shine!
A length of white Glittered Organdy Ribbon was adhered to the card front diagonally using Stampin’ Seal. I then adhered the ink blended snowflake to the center of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A sentiment from the Sweet Candy Canes Stamp Set was stamped onto a 1/2″ strip of white cardstock then matted to a strip of Night of Navy cardstock. The sentiment label was adhered over top of the ink blended snowflake on the center of the card. Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added to the card front.
For the inside panel, I used the medium sized snowflake stamp from the Christmas Lights Stamp Set, to stamp multiple snowflakes in Balmy Blue ink in the upper left and lower right of the panel. The snowflakes were dusted with Wink of Stella. An additional sentiment was added to the inside panel from the Sweet Candy Canes Stamp Set and also stamped in Balmy Blue ink.
The envelope was finished off with the same medium sized snowflake being stamped in Balmy Blue ink on the envelope front and envelope flap. Of course, Wink of Stella was used to add sparkle!
This completes today’s card. These cards could be produced in multiples quickly and make for a simple but elegant option. The die cut snowflakes would also make great Christmas tree decorations or package decorations!
