Serene Snowflakes

I just love this new stamp set from Stampin' Up!, featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I found inspiration from the card sample provided in the catalog with Bella Bleu designer series paper, but added my own twist using Chocolate Chip and heat embossing, as well as one of the felt snowflakes (now on the Clearance Rack!!!!).

Stampin' Up! product used is bolded.

  1. Cut a 4-1/2 by 11 piece of Kraft paper and then score in half.

  2. Cut a 4 x 5-1/4 piece of the blue patterned paper from Bella Bleu DSP. Rub-on many white snowflakes from the Icicles rub-ons (again featured in the Holiday Mini). Then stamp a few snowflakes in Chocolate Chip Craft in (some overlapping/on top of the white snowflakes), then sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder and heat.

  3. Cut a 1-1/2 inch piece of kraft patterned paper from Bella Bleu DSP and then run the Sweet Swirls wheel in Chocolate Chip Craft ink a few times, sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder and then heat. Add a rub-on or stamped greeting as well. I used a holiday greeting from the Chit Chat rub-on collection. Adhere this strip to the blue patterned paper.
  4. Tie a piece of Kraft Taffeta ribbon around the panel, adhere in the back. Attach a felt snowflake with a Styled Silver piece of Hardware (brad). Then adhere the panel to the card front using SNAIL adhesive.
