Snowflake Season – Simon Says Stamp card Kit

Hi friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! It is another super cold week here! I am dreaming of a warm spring day, aren’t you? I love the January 2021 Snowflake Season card kit from Simon Says Stamp! The card kits are an amazing deal and full of product! I encourage you to check them out! I always look forward to the new kits and what the month has to offer! The card kit is currently sold out, but the individual kit contents are available for purchase!

Background

I started my cards today by using the pattern paper from the kit – Blurry Flurries (Whimsy Stamps). The paper is currently sold out, but WOW this paper is stunning! You can have Simon contact you when it is back in stock – just the click the Notify Me button. I started by using the pattern paper from the kit! This paper is double sided, it was hard to choose which side to use, I loved them all! I used the Filigree Snowflakes embossing folder also in the kit to emboss the pattern paper panels I chose to use for my cards. I used my Big Shot for the embossing. Simon offers the sandwhich by machine on their website, be sure to check this out! I ran all 4 panels through my machine. I wanted to add a bit more shimmer and shine to each panel. I used metallic watercolors to add sparkle to each panel. On a couple of the panels I also used gold ink. I swiped the ink pad gently across the panel to add the ink. I then trimmed down the pattern paper panels using a Hero Arts nested Rectangle die. I also trimmed 4 sheets of the colored card stock also included in the kit. I trimmed panels to match my die cut snowflakes.

Putting it Together & Sentiment

The kit also includes the Eliza snowflake wafer die. I die cut the snowflake 4 times, using the colored card stock from the kit, as well as the Silver Holgraphic Cardstock! This card stock is so beautiful and shiny! Once they were die cut I embossed the snowflakes using WOW Embossing Powder. I chose 3 different powders for my die cuts today: Disco Ball, Fairy Dust, and Pearl Gold Sparkle). These 3 powders are so sparkly and beautiful! I treated each die cut with my embossing buddy and then added WOW embossing ink and sprinkled the powders on each. Then I heat set each snowflake! I love the added shine these powders gave my card. I die cut the Silver Holographic Card stock using the Waffle Flower Skinny Strips die. I adhered the 2 panels to my A2 card base, as well as the skinny strip. I then adhered my snowflake. I chose 2 sentiments from the Snowflake Season stamp set. I stamped these in black on white card stock. I trimmed my sentiments and then adhered these with foam tape. I added a few sequins to each card and my winter greetings are complete!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope this post finds you doing well!

Crafty Hugs – I’ll be back soon!
