Snowflake Cards

I'm really trying hard to get my Christmas cards done--so I can move on to the next thing to get ready for Christmas!! YIKES! So much to do; so little time. How does this happen every year?!

Here's a card with blues, silvers, whites and lots of sparkle and bling.  Hope you like it!

This was one of those cards that the more I worked on it, the better I liked it.  Here's a snowflake before more bling.  It's okay, BUT...

Look at this ONE--isn't this one so much better all blinged up?  I love it!

And I cut double snowflakes and layered them with foam squares in between.

How I made it:
White A2 pre-scored card
Blue Snowflake paper that I bought at Joann's in single sheets.
White sparkly cardstock with silver flecks that I also bought at Joann's (5 for $1.00 sale).
The snowflakes were cut from Art Philosophy at 2".  This is <Snwflke2> on page 27.
Silver and blue ribbon.
Scalloped oval cut with Nestabilities set and stamped.  Took my silver metallic gel pen and inked around the edges.
Lots of blue gems!

Here's the whole card.  This one was fun to make.  The Art Philosophy cartridge has several snowflake images on it, so I think I'm going to try making a few more.

Here's another snowflake card using Art Philosophy cart and an A2 size card. This is <Snwflke1> on pg. 22.  I cut this one at 3" and then had a hard time figuring out how to use it!  But here's what I came up with.

It's a little hard to tell from the picture, but the green cardstock is glitter paper and the gold is shimmer cardstock.  Glitter and shimmer!  Both from DCWV.

And here's yet another snowflake card from Art Philosophy.  This is <Snwflke3> on pg 31.  This time I cut  it using the Tag feature at 2".

I made this 5x6.5" card using blue cardstock.  The patterned paper is from K&Company Secret Santa 12x12 paper pad.  So cute, and sometimes crazy-looking, paper!  Pink cardstock from my stash and I embossed the matting with Polka Dots Cuttlebug folder.  I think that may be it for the snowflake cards! Thanks for stopping by.

    Thanks for the hope that I will find my hope. That little stamp has to be somewhere. I'm glad you found your peachy keen face.

  4. Do I detect a theme? I love your snowflake cards, all of them! And you know my way of thinking - the bigger the bling, the better the card! Ha! Ha!

    Thanks for the inspiration,
    Cindy :)
