Blue Snowflake Glitter Window card
Creating this Blue Snowflake Glitter Window card with a black background reminded me of how pretty the world looks when it snows at night.
While this card may be for the avid crafter, with the right tools and the tutorial below, it’s fun to make! I hope you give it a try.
I created this card as part of the design team for the Joy of Sets December challenge. Unfortunately, this will be the LAST month for this fun challenge, as it’s shutting down. Let’s finish strong and make a card or project by choosing a row, column, or diagonal from this grid:
I chose the middle row: Sparkle, Non-Traditional, and Snowflake. Not all holiday cards need to be red and green!
While I love to put sparkle on most of my holiday cards, using the non-traditional black color for my background makes those snowflakes pop!
See below for how to make this card!
Steps to make a Blue Snowflake Window Card:
Cut your Cardstock:
- Basic Black
- 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored and folded at 4 1/4” for your cardbase
- 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”
- Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper: 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”
- Whisper White scraps
- With Versamark, stamp your sentiment on the front center of your cardbase. Sprinkle with white embossing powder and then tap off the excess. Lastly, heat it until it melts and is shiny.
- Using multiple blue inks, stamp the different snowflakes on whisper white cardstock. Die-cut out your snowflakes!
Create the Layers:
- From the center of the glimmer paper, die-cut out the snowflake hexagon to form a window. Ensure the sentiment will show through!! Glue this glimmer layer to your cardbase front.
- TIP: Save this die-cut and use it to cut a few extra glittery snowflakes!
- Glue your stamped/die-cut snowflakes to your top black layer randomly. It’s ok if they overlap and lay over the edge. Trim the excess.
- Die-cut a stitched hexagon from the center of this layer that is slightly larger than the snowflake die.
- Lastly, use dimensionals to adhere this layer to your card base!
