Holiday Card Series 2019 – Day 4 – Snowflakes & Metallic Rainbow

Happy Friday, all! For Day 4 of the Holiday Cards Series, I created a snowflake card! I love all the snowflake dies from Simon! I used a bunch of them on this card, plus the Altenew Metallic Watercolor set.

(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).

I started out by creating a metallic rainbow background for my snowflakes to be on top of. I roughly painted rainbow colors from the Altenew Metallic Watercolor set over black watercolor paper. I did a few layers of color so that I could get a better blend of color.

Then I die cut a bunch of snowflake dies from Simon out of white cardstock. I used Marie, Grace, Lea, Rina, and Snow Flurries. I adhered them to the background using Connect Glue.

For the greeting, I stamped the “Season’s Greetings” image from Simon’s Holiday Greetings Mix 1 stamp set on the same black watercolor paper and white heat embossed it.

To finish off the card, I added 8mm and 5mm Crystal sequins from Darice.

I’ll be back on Monday with another day in the Holiday Card Series. See you then! :)

    I love the black and metallic watercolour. I hope we get to see more of these type of cards in the future. I just love the look! Thanks for the video! I also really like it when you give a preamble to the card video. Keep them coming! Although, I am sure it is a lot of work for you to do for us. We really do appreciate them.
