|Hahaha....Grumpy cat snowflake! Whoever did this was a genius!!!|
I am here to share another set of cards I made for Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities 2015. These sweet little snowflake cards were inspired by Jennifer's awesome card here. Jennifer used her Cricut to cut the ornaments, but I don't have an electronic cutter so I improvised with my Big Shot and some dies.
First I die cut some older double-sided Echo Park "Winter Wishes" papers from my stash with the lovely Spellbinders - Carnival Dream die set. This fun set has a fold and tuck design so your reverse pattern shows. You can see in the photo below some of the ones before and after folding.
After folding, I squeezed on some silver glitter glue for extra sparkle and let them dry overnight.
The next day, I layered the two sizes of folded die-cuts and added a dazzling big rhinestone in the center. I tied on some icy blue ribbon for hanging the ornament.
I die-cut pre-made glittery card bases in silver and turquoise with my Sizzix - Circles, Scallop die set and used repositionable adhesive to attach the snowflake on the front so the ornament can be removed and hung on the tree, if desired. The scalloped edge of the die cut allows the card to stand up nicely and since the card base was an A2 size, this flat ornament card will fit in a standard sized envelope. Yay!!
I absolutely love how these turned out. I ended up making a set of 4 of them....2 in blue and 2 in silver....my favorite color combo for Christmas. My little stack of cards keeps growing! Thank you to Jennifer Grace for the lovely inspiration.
