I love the snow and am already looking forward to it so I just couldn’t resist creating a card using the new Bo Bunny Snowfall paper line and stamps. When I find a beautiful piece of paper, I often have trouble cutting it to fit to the normal card size so I will use it on a card that I know I won’t be mailing so that I don’t have to worry about the larger size. This is one of those cards and you can make one to give to someone that you know that enjoys the cold, frosty winter, too.
- Blue Cardstock
- White Cardstock
- Bo Bunny Snowfall 6 x 6 Paper Pad
- Snowfall Clear Stamps
- Father Christmas Clear Stamps for the greeting
- Martha Stewart Snowflake Stamp & Punch
- EK Jolee’s Hotfix Tool
- Hotfix Jewels
- White Ink
- Faded Jeans Distress Ink
- Picket Fence Stickles
- Paint Brush
- Clear Stamp Block
- Tape Runner
Start by cutting a 7 ½” x 12″ piece of blue cardstock and fold it in half. Ink the edges first with the white ink pad working it towards the center of the card a little bit. Next, use the Faded Jeans ink pad and ink just the edges of the card enough to show on top of the white.
Again using the white ink pad, the stamp block and the Snowfall clear stamps stamp them onto the patterned paper. Place the “Happy Holidays” stamp from the Father Christmas stamp set onto the block and ink with white ink. Stamp it onto the lower right corner. If some of the stamped image is lighter or darker that’s ok because remember you want a frosty look to the card and this helps to create that look.
Place a small dot of the Picket Fences Stickles in the center of the snowflake and using the paint brush work it out onto the rest of it making sure not to tear the paper. Repeat with the second snowflake and allow both to dry.
Once they are completely dry, place a small dot of glue in the middle of one snowflake and then arrange the second snowflake on top so that they are off center from one another and allow the glue to dry.
Glue the snowflake onto the card under the holiday sentiment and dry completely so it won’t move when applying the jewels.
You now have some frosty holiday wishes to share. Happy Holidays!
