This is another card we made when I had some friends come over a couple weeks ago. We used a bundle in the 2022 July – December Mini Catalog called Merry Snowflakes. This bundle includes the stamp set of the same name and the Stitched Snowflakes Dies. If you purchased them both in a bundle you can save 10%.
To make this card I used the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is also in the Mini Catalog. I love this paper. The colors in it are Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight, Mossy Meadow and Polished Pink. Plus some of the sheets have silver foil on them (as in the one I used on this card).
I used one of the Stitched Snowflakes Dies to cut out the outline of a snowflake in it in Basic White card stock. The die is so much fun because it does stitching on the outside. I then adhered it to a piece of Silver Foil Specialty Pack. This pack has three different finished of silver foil. One is a brushed. One is a matte finish and the one I used is a mirror finish. I use Multipurpose glue when I am using any of the foil papers because I think it sticks better. I cut another snowflake out using the same die in Blushing Bridge cardstock and layered that inside the cut out of the Basic White piece. Then I cut a different snowflake out of the Silver Foil and adhered that to the Blushing Bride piece. I just love the stitching on these snowflakes.
Then I stamped the sentiment from the Merry Snowflakes stamp set in Versamark ink. I sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder on it and heat set it with my Heat Tool. I adhered that to another piece of the Silver Foil.
Well this weekend we had another boating catastrophe. I told you about our sailing incident in an earlier post. This time our the lift on our motor boat collapsed and the boat when crashing down. Luckily there was not a lot of damage to the boat but we had to pull it out of the water until we could get the lift fixed. It has been a crazy weather summer as well. July was cold and raining and August has been hot and humid. That is backwards from what we usually get.I am thinking this season has been cursed as far as our boating goes and maybe it is time to just take all of them out of the water and try again next year.
Susan, this is soooo lovely. I love an off Christmas color and the layered snowflake is just beautiful
This is so pretty, Susan! I love the non-traditional Christmas colors. And I am so sorry about your boat catastrophes. Here’s to better weather soon – and boats that stay above water!
