We made this card at the Stamp Out Breast Cancer event last week and it was very well received. Some even decided to make this card for their holiday cards this year! Because of its simplicity, you can create 48 cards from one set of cardstock.
Instructions: 1. Cut Mellow Moss CS in half to create card base. Always Artichoke layer is 4" by 5 1/4". White is 3 3/4" by 5". 2. Stamp large snowflake with Artichoke ink across white. Stamp greeting in lower corner. 3. Stamp smaller snowflakes with Moss ink to fill in the spaces. 4. Use sponge to brush ink along the edges of white cardstock. 5. Adhere layers together and then to card base. 6. Draw with 2-way glue pen on areas of card where you want glitter. Sprinkle glitter over glue and tap off excess.
Voila! You are finished and have a beautiful card!
PS This card is also one that will be featured at my Stamp-A-Stack of Holiday Cards on October 18th. Send me an email to register for this class.

Do you believe that there are about 12 weeks left until Christmas? It seems like it's not a lot of time but really there is PLENTY of time to create your own Holiday Cards and make your own Holiday gifts. This card is my first of a new series called the "12 Weeks of Christmas". Every Friday I'll post (and email to my mailing list) a new project for Christmas.
This card features the stamp set Snow Swirled, Red Riding Hood ink and cardstock, the Snow Blossom punch. The complete list of materials used is below.
First I stamped the three sizes of snowflakes on a 4 x 5.25 piece of Whisper White cardstock in Riding hood Red ink. I then sponged the edges with the red ink and added Dazzling Diamonds to various parts of the flakes. Boy, does that look cool in person! I then attached that piece to the 5.5 x 8.5 piece of Red Riding Hood folded to be the card base. Next I stamped the Season's Greetings onto a 1 x 2.25 piece of Whisper White, sponged the edges, layered onto 1.25 x 2.5 Red Riding Hood and attached it to the card front. Lastly, I stamped the small red snowflake on white, then punched it out with the 1/2" circle punch. I layered it the Snow Blossom punched out of Red Riding Hood cardstock and attached it to the card with a dimensional. Easy!!
Stamp Set: Snow Swirled (111690, $24.95)
