Holiday Card Series 2018 – Day 3 – Glitter Snowflake Cards

For those who are are new to my blog and videos, the Holiday Card Series consists of 25 holiday card inspiration videos. I’ll be sharing holiday inspiration every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until November 30. Today’s cards for Day 3 are super glittery and use a bunch of snowflake dies!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

First, I started by die cutting a bunch of snowflakes out of glitter cardstock. I used a couple new dies from Simon’s latest release. I used the Alicia Snowflake and Rina Snowflake dies, plus the previously released Maryanne Snowflake and Snow Flurries dies. Unfortunately, two of the snowflake dies I used are discontinued (which I didn’t know until I went to type up this blog post). The discontinued snowflakes are Nadine Snowflake and Aubrey Snowflake.

I used four colors of glitter cardstock (all of which I found in the assortment pack of glitter cardstock from Simon). I used White, Gold, Rose Gold, and a mysterious purple which I can’t find anywhere online. LOL! It came in the original multipack of glitter cardstock, but now I can’t find the color.

After the snowflakes were diecut, I stacked them on top of each other to create colorful snowflakes. I used Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive to glue them together. I also used the same adhesive when it came to adhering the snowflakes to the final cards.

I watercolored a panel to go behind the snowflakes using Mijello Mission Gold watercolors, and then adhered the snowflakes, as well as a greeting diecut from the Holiday Words On a Line die set. To add some sparkle, I added purple gems and pink sequins.

Since I had diecut snowflakes leftover from the first card, I used them on a second card and added a stamped greeting from the Tiny Words Christmas stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today! You can see the entire Simon Holiday release HERE. :)
