For my card today I decided to use the Snowflakes die set.

Here is how I created my card:

Step 1
  • Using the smallest snowflake in the Snowflakes die set, die cut six solid snowflakes that have Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front, and six detailed snowflakes from White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Remove the protective backing from the adhesive on the solid snowflake and attach the snowflake overlay on top. Be careful not to touch the adhesive.
  • Cover the remaining adhesive with True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish the glitter into the adhesive using your finger to help bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 2 - 
  • Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4 inches x 5 1/4 inches.
  • Adhere the snowflakes to the card so that some of the snowflakes are overhanging the edge of the card.

  • When the adhesive is dry, trim off the any of the snowflakes that are overhanging so they are flush with the edge.
  • Use the overhanging snowflake offcuts to fill in any other areas around the card.
Step 3 - 
  • Cut a piece of Red Cardstock that measures 5 1/2 inches x 8 1/2 inches. Score along the long side at 4 1/4 inches to create a top folding card.
  • Attach the decorated snowflake panel to the folded red card using fun foam or foam tape.
Step 4 - 
  • Die cut a fishtail flag using the Stitched Fishtails Banners die set. Stamp the sentiment " Tis the Season" to the banner using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder.
  • Adhere the sentiment to the top right hand corner of card.
Step 5 -
  • Add Red/Gold Glitter Dot Peel Off Stickers to the centre of all the snowflakes.

Step 6 - The Inside of Card:
  • Die cut a rectangle using the Dashing Rectangles die set from White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Using the medium snowflake die from the Snowflakes die set, create a snowflake as per the instructions in step 1. Adhere to centre of card.
  • Die cut a double ended banner using the Stitched Fishtail Banners die set from red cardstock. Stamp the sentiment to the centre of the banner using VersaMark Ink and white embossing powder. Adhere sentiment to centre of snowflake.
  • Adhere panel to inside of card.
