Christmas card with hanging snowflakes

Hi everyone,

I wanted to show you how to create this wonderful Christmas card that looks stunning.

Christmas_Snowflake_Card_LRYou can see the beautiful effect when the card is opened… The stamp has been stamped onto clear acetate and heat embossed with an opaque white embossing powder and so the light shines through and it looks almost like an expensive laser cut design.

This card uses the fabulous Wow! ‘Blizzard’ clear stamp that’s a wonderful intricate stamp that fits perfectly into the Christmas theme.

I then cut a rectangle from my card blank (just slightly smaller than the stamped area) and mounted the acetate to the inside of the card.

Next, I stamped the Christmas Tree from the Wow! ‘Deck The Halls’ stamp set and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. This was onto a semi-translucent pearlised paper. I cut around  the embossed area and added a gem star and silver bow embellishment and mounted this with foam pads onto the card.

To complete the card, I cut two thin strips of acetate and attached them to the inside top of the card but positioned them so they hang over the front and added some snowflakes and silver diamante gems.


And there’s the final card… an easy to make but beautiful Christmas Card. 😀

Here are two other cards made using the same stamp… As you can see the stamp is also perfect for A6 size cards. The first card uses Bright White Embossing Powder on a Lilac Pearlescent Card and the second card uses Blueberry Embossing Powder on White Card.
