Non Traditional Snowflakes by Janet

posted in: Blog, Janet 0

Hello, Janet here with two Christmas Cards. I love snowflakes! but wanted to show that they can be used in any colours you wish. I used the Snowflake Turnabout stamp by Concord and 9th along with Catherine Pooler Designs inks.  All the supplies I used are listed and linked below. I’d love to see the Christmas Cards you’ve been making. Feel free to share them in our Facebook Group.

 

Snowflake-Turnabout-Card-3

Jeni made the X marks on the back of the stamp following the directions on the back of the packaging.  This stamp was still in the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform from when Jeni made these cards.

Neutral Snowflakes

On a pre-scored card base, and using a small piece of purple tape to keep the card closed with some temporary tape runner to hold the card to the jig.  For the neutral coloured snowflakes I use three colours of ink, and only turn my card three times.

The colours I use are Icing On The Cake for the first turn, Sand Castle for the second, and Over Coffee for the third. I turned my jig 90 degree each time.  

For the sentiment I diecut the Merry and Bright die from Gold Metallic card and use little dots of liquid glue to adhere this to the card.

Snowflake-Turnabout-Card-2

Red Snowflakes

I am working on mixed media card for the red card and stamp in the same way as above using Peppermint Scrub, Samba, Polished and Rose Petals. The sentiment is stamped with Peppermint Scrub onto some white card, trimmed into a rectangle and I pop this up with foam tape to adhere it to the panel.  I adhere this onto a A2 sized card base and my quick cards are finished.

Finishing The Card

I decided not to add any other embellishments to my cards but you could easier add sequins or enamel Crystal Drops.  Let me know what you think.  Which one do you prefer?
