Inky fun snowflake Christmas card!


Hello Crafty Friends!

Are you looking for an inky, easy, last minute winter card to create?  Look no further than this festively fun card using Suzanne's holiday stamps.

The main stamp set used is the lovely A Whisper On My Nose stamp set:

It is a three stamp set (two individual snowflakes and the poem).  I also used snowflakes from other Suzanne stamp sets but you can easily just use the two snowflakes from this set.

Card instructions:
1-    Create a tent fold 4.25 x 5.5" card base from red card stock.
2-    Cut a piece of white or ivory card stock to 4 x 5.25".
3-    To prevent static, use an anti-static pouch on your white card stock.  Use Versamark or white embossing powder to stamp the snowflakes.  Use embossing powder (such as the Gesso White Modern Gilding Powder) to heat emboss the snowflakes.
4-    Use a red water reactive ink (such as Spectrum Noir Water reactive or Ranger Distress Ink) the create an ombre background.  Start with the red on the bottom and gradually lighten as you go up.  Wipe snowflakes off with a clean, dry cloth to remove the red ink.  Optional: flick water on the background and pat dry for a wet, distressed look.  Use double sided tape to mount to card base.
5-    Stamp the poem using black ink (heat emboss using the Gothic Black Gilding Powders looks fabulous!).  Die cut using a square stitched die.  Apply red ink along edges.
6-    Die cut red card stock using the next larger size stitched square die.  Mount poem onto red die cut.  Use double sided foam tape to mount to card front.
7-    For extra awesome, add gems or glitter to the snowflake centers and randomly on the background.

The red really makes the snowflakes pop and adds a festive feel to the card.  

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day!

  1. My partner (38) recently decided he was no longer happy in a relationship with me. To exit the relationship he started dating this other person who is way older than him (15 years) and specifically told me he was doing it to ensure there is little chance of us working out whatever problems we had. All of this is happening before my very eyes as we are still working out the split of the family home and other details.I have been grieving for a month now because the relationship lasted nearly 11 years. I am trying to be supportive rather than disruptive however I feel she uses my attachment to our 4yo daughter. On several occasions he would leave her with me just so he can be with the new girlfriend and be happy . I understand he shouldn't wait for my grief or my permission to move on with a new partner but the fact he does it so soon and so openly is really hurtful to me. I am even considering moving to another city and cutting all ties to her and my daughter just to escape the pain. I recently found out how they were planning to raise our daughter and are making arrangements for this without even consulting me. I am completely lost but since I contacted Dr Peter my Lovers came back to me without any delay. contact Dr peter if you want your lover back in peace and joy contact him via email or WhatsApp +2348162247974 or Facebook page blogspot:
