If you love snowflakes – the beautiful stitched snowflakes in the Merry Snowflakes bundle might be exactly what you’re looking for. The unique snowflake images & fabulous sentiments in the Merry Snowflakes stamp set are wonderful for creating Christmas cards. I have a fun Merry Snowflakes bundle & Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series card for this week’s Global Design Project Theme Challenge. I die cut out the stitched snowflakes out of the gorgeous Pearlescent Specialty paper and also heat embossed the sentiment on the Specialty paper too.
Start with a Basic Gray cs card base. Cut a Basic White cs panel and a Peaceful Place Specialty DSP panel. Glue the panels together and then add a piece of Metallic Mesh ribbon down the left side of the panels using Stampin’ Seal to secure the ends on the back of the panels. Glue the wrapped panels to the card base. Die cut Pearlescent Specialty paper stitched snowflakes with the Stitched Snowflakes dies and glue them to the card front overlapping the wrapped ribbon.
Die cut a Pearlescent Specialty paper stitched rectangle with the Stitched Rectangles dies. Stamp the sentiment from the Merry Snowflakes stamp set inking first in Versamark and then in Basic Gray ink and then stamp on the stitched rectangle. Cover with the Clear embossing powder, shake off excess and then melt the powder with a Heat Tool. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the heat embossed sentiment stitched rectangle to the bottom right of the card front. Add Opal Rounds to the center of the stitched snowflakes and to the sentiment. Tie a small bow with the Metallic Mesh ribbon and add it above the sentiment with glue dots.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment from the Merry Snowflakes stamp set in Basic Gray, added a strip of Specialty DSP and a die cut stitched snowflake to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my #GDP319 Merry Snowflakes Bundle & Peaceful Place DSP card. You can order the Merry Snowflakes bundle, Peaceful Place Specialty DSP, Stitched Rectangle dies, and the Pearlescent Specialty paper in my Online Store.
