Snowflakes have been swirling here in Minnesota already for the past few weeks.
Snowflakes are amazing things, they say there are not two alike. I started to think about that and wondered if the saying was true so I googled it. I got lots of poems about snowflakes and then came across an interesting article...
So if you are as curious as me you can check out the link.
Snowflakes are fascinating and maybe that is why like tree stamps I really can't have too many. I could not resist the Swirling Snowflakes Thinlits Dies, so delicate and versatile.
I love how my card turned out today using the SS008 Card Sketch. Check back to the original card I created to see how different the two are. You can see how using the same layout but changing up the stamp set and colors can give it an entirely new look.
- Card Base is the Whisper White Thick Cardstock (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") I love this cardstock as it is the same thickness as our colored cardstocks giving the base such a nice sturdy feel.
- I ran the card front through the big shot using the White Wonder embossing folder.
- Then I used the borders from the dies to cut out the Real Red cardstock (2-1/2" x 5-1/2") and then attached some gold sequins to the back of the first snowflake with them hanging down and then attached the cardstock to the card front about 1/4" from the top.
- Then I cut out the row of snowflakes in Whisper White and cut them apart to create 3 individual snowflakes and adhered them to the Real Red Cardstock.
- Tied a small bow out of the 1/8" Gold Ribbon and attached it with a glue dot to the first snowflake.
I am in love with the Swirly Snowflake Thinlits Dies and can see using this a lot throughout the winter. How many love snowflakes and if you live where it is warm do you still use snowflakes for card making? Click Here to Answer
