Snipped Snowflakes

Snipped Snowflakes

Morning all!

Now that we're well and truly into December, this is the time when simple Christmas cards are definitely on the agenda!

And it couldn't get much simpler than these.

You can't go wrong with a nice big snowflake as the focal point on your card.

For my cards, I opted for the new Snipped Snowflakes #1 and #3 sets from The Greetery and cut the smaller of the two dies in each set from white cardstock.

Then all you need is a tag or circle die, a fancy bow, some patterned paper, and the sentiments of your choice.

I started out by giving the white snowflakes a splattering of pearlescent paint in frosty white so that they sparkle a little when they catch the light.

Tip: The Snipped Snowflakes #3 set has score lines down the middle of the snowflakes so you can add some subtle dimension to your project by folding along these lines and also creating some pop when layering the snowflakes up with other Snipped Snowflakes.

For my tags, I went with the Crimped Circle Tags from The Greetery. I cut them from kraft, blended some brown ink around the edges, and added a splattering of white paint. With the snowflakes added, they almost look like gingerbread cookies.

I then used the Loopy Bow die from The Greetery to finish off the tags. For some subtle sparkle, I added some glimmer to the knots of the bows with a Wink of Stella pen.

I covered my card bases in patterned paper that would be a nice neutral backdrop for the tags.

Finally, I grabbed what has to be my most used festive sentiment set this year, the Sentiment Suite Christmas stamps and coordinating dies to finish off the cards.

And there we have it, two more cards made and many more still to go!

Until next time, happy crafting!
