Baby, it's Cold Outside Snowflake Card

Happy New Year!  The theme for the week is "Baby, it's Cold Outside" and I am presenting a snowflake card.  Snow hasn't been seen too much around Michigan this year, and I am okay with that.  Although I love the beauty of snowflakes, I sometimes prefer to see them in the Stampendous and Dreamweaver papercrafting lines!

Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Ribbon and Pearls by May Arts
VersaMagic in Royal Blue
Scotch Removable Tape
Scotch 1/2" Adhesive Tape
Xyron 5" Machine and Adhesive
Big Bite
Embossing Heat Tool


  1. The base card stock is 9 1/4" by 6 1/4", folded on the side.
  2. Cut dark blue card stock to 4 5/8" by 6 1/4" and adhere to the front of the card.
  3. Stamp the light blue card stock with the Snowflake Sky stamp and VersaMark.
  4. Cover the image with the Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder and tap off the excess.
  5. Use the heat tool to emboss.
  6. Stamp the multi media paper with the sentiment stamp and VeraMagic ink.
  7. Tape the snowflake stencil on acetate using the removable tape.  Place a long piece across the top of the stencil first, as it will act like a hinge.
  8. Use the palette knife place a strip of embossing paste above the snowflake.  Make sure there is a long enough strip to cover the entire snowflake.
  9. Use the back of the palette knife to pull the embossing paste over the stencil. (Imagine a squeegee).  The entire snowflake should be filled.
  10. Remove the tape from the sides and bottom of the stencil.
  11. Carefully lift the snowflake stencil from a corner like a door on that hinge.  Then, pull the whole stencil off the acetate.
  12. While the paste is still wet, cover with the crystal glitter.  Then let it dry completely
  13. After the snowflake is dry, brush off the excess glitter with a CLEAN stencil brush.
  14. Trim the acetate close to the snowflake.
  15. Cut a medium blue piece of card stock in a square that is slightly smaller than the snowflake.
  16. Cut a slightly larger piece of dark blue card stock and adhere the lighter one inside it.
  17. Adhere the mounted card stock squares on point on the snowflake sky background.
  18. Adhere May Arts Ribbon around the bottom of the snowflake sky background.
  19. Make a mat for the stamped sentiment out of the medium and then dark card stock and attach in layers.
  20. Attach the mounted phrase over the ribbon.
  21. Use the Big Bite to make two holes above the sentiment.
  22. Put May Arts Ribbon and Pearls through the holes and tie with a bow.
  23. Run the snowflake through the Xyron machine and adhere to the squares.
  24. Add rhinestones.
