I used the Snowflake Wishes Bundle (Snowflake Wishes stamp set & So Many Snowflakes Dies) along with the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper – all of which are part of the Snowflake Splendor Suite Collection – to create today’s Christmas card. I’m also providing a sneak peek at an upcoming product, that will be available in the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog: Blending Brushes. I am very excited that Stampin’ Up! will be offering this amazing blending tool! I used one in a side to side motion to blend the three stripes of background color onto a layer of Whisper White card stock.

Here’s the sketch:

I recently attended Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage@Home virtual event for Demonstrators, where we got to see the new catalog and lots of new products. After the last day, my upline, Brian King, hosted a virtual After Party for his team members. He had given us a sketch challenge for the event, and we all got to show off what we made. Today’s card is the one I made for that challenge.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper strip cut to 4-1/4″ x 1/2″
  • Whisper White Thick CS cut to 3-1/2″ x 7/8″ for the sentiment

Stamped with the Snowflake Wishes stamp set:

  • sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto the 3-1/2″ x 7/8″ Whisper White Thick CS

Colored using a Blender Brush:

  • Whisper White CS layer in Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, and Night of Navy inks (top to bottom)
  • a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS in Night of Navy

Cut using the Layering Ovals Dies:

  • DSP oval
  • Whisper White Thick CS slightly larger than the DSP ovalx

Cut using the So Many Snowflakes Dies:

  • one snowflake from the brushed scrap
  • one snowflake from a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • blended Whisper White CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • DSP oval glued onto the Whisper White Thick CS oval
  • Whisper White Thick CS oval adhered onto the blended layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • sentiment glued across the ovals, and adhered on the ends onto the blended layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • blended snowflake glued onto the end of the sentiment
  • Whisper White snowflake glued onto the blended layer
  • DSP strip glued onto the inside of the card base
  • NOTE: There were some thin strips of DSP from previous projects lying around my craft table. After I had this one glued onto my card, I realized I had used one from the Feels Like Frost DSP instead of the Snowflake Splendor DSP. But, hey, it works!
