Well hello, my friends! Ilda here.
Today I am back with a couple of Christmas cards inspired by the new Snowflake Stencils from Studio Katia.
To begin I started by adding Glimmer paste to both panels. For this first card, I used the SNOWFLAKE STENCIL and applied Moonstone Glimmer paste and set it off to dry. Once it was dry I used the frame from the LOOPS: CREATIVE DIE to cut out the card front for what would become the shaker window. Next, I used the ELEGANT SCALLOP OVAL to die cut the opening for the shaker. To the back of the panel, I glued on a piece of ACETATE that I trimmed to cover the opening.
I then used the window as a guide to figure out where to add the sentiment. I then stamped the sentiment from the GIFT TAG GREETINGS: WINTER directly onto the front of the card base and heat embossed it using silver embossing powder. I also added the same embossing to the little bow that I would later embellish the top of the oval frame with.
Next, I added a little pile of the FROST GLITTER and the ICY SPARKLE CRYSTALS directly over the sentiment and then popped on the front shaker panel that I had added FOAM tape too. To finish this card I then glued on the thin dotted frame and glued some more crystals to the card front.
This next card was done the exact same way as the previous card only this time I simplified it even more by not creating a shaker. Also, for this card, I used the FLORAL SNOWFLAKE STENCIL and applied Silver Gem Paste.
Again here I used the frame from the LOOPS: CREATIVE DIE to cut out the panel as well as the same sentiment from the GIFT TAG GREETINGS: WINTER this time stamped onto black cardstock and embossed in white.
To finish up the card I popped foam onto the back of the panel and glued it and the frame to the card base and then embellished the front with SILVER FOIL PEARLS.
I hope these Clean and Simple Christmas Snowflake Stencil Cards inspire you today.
Thank you for stopping by and until next time hope you have a wonderful week… Happy Crafting Everyone 👋
WOW! Two absolutely gorgeous cards! I have nearly everything except the snowflake stencil! On my shopping list!
These are beautiful. You have combined my two favorite things (shakers and glitter) and made a gorgeous card. That second one with the big snowflake is simply stunning.
Gorgeous cards, Ilda! I’m really loving these snowflake stencils – you showcase them beautifully!
