Sandi MacIver – Stampin With Sandi – Snowflake Sentiments for Freshly Made Sketches
Hi Stamping friends, my share today is Snowflake Sentiments for Freshly Made Sketches challenge for this week, and I’m sliding in just under the deadline wire…I always work better under pressure, haha.
Today’s card is quick and easy with a HUGE wow factor because of the lovely Year of Cheer Designer paper.
The Classic foil designs in the Year of Cheer Designer Paper are perfect for holidays, weddings and anniversaries. This package is a little different in that you received 3 sheets of 4 designs making it the perfect choice for creating multiple cards.
#144640 – $17.00 per package, page 37 of the Holiday Catalogue – or click the number to view in my online store.
My layout for today’s card is from the Freshly Made Sketches for this week.
Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Snowflake Sentiments for Freshly Made Sketches card.
I layered the designer paper 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 with Gold Foil 4 x 5-1/4 and then Thick Whisper White card base, 4-1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5-1/2.
For the art piece, I Gold Heat Embossed the larger snowflake stamp onto a 3″ piece of Whisper White before cutting it out with the Layering Circles Framelits.
I matted it with a Gold Foil, Stitched Shapes circle also cut from a 3″ piece of the Gold Foil Sheet using the second largest stitched circle framelit.
The cross piece is Whisper White 1-1/2 x 3-7/8 with the three little snowflakes gold heat embossed. I then matted it with another piece of Gold Foil, 1-5/8 x 3-7/8
One simple embellishment of a Rhinestone in the center of the snowflake completes this clean and simple design.
I chose to keep the front of my card clean and heat embossed the sentiment on the inside. Our family has lots of winter birthdays, so I was thinking a birthday greeting would also be perfect inside this card.
