Holiday Card Series 2019 – Day 24 – Snowflakes & Mail Art
NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp! Thanks, Simon!
Hi all! For Day 24 of the Holiday Card Series, I have some more inspiration for you using Simon Says Stamp’s January 2020 card kit! The kit includes the fun Snowflake Builder stamp set, so I started by creating a snowflake card.
(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 stamped one of the large snowflake images from the Snowflake Builder stamp set in Teal ink from Simon on white cardstock. Then I ink blended Mint and Teal inks radiating from the center of the snowflake.
To complete the layered snowflake, I lined up the second image over the top of the stamped snowflake, stamped it in VersaMark ink, and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.
For the card greeting, I stamped the banner image from the stamp set on Soft Navy cardstock and silver heat embossed it as well.
I used Simon’s Nested Circles dies to cut the stamped snowflake piece, as well as a circle card base made out of Soft Navy cardstock. Then I adhered the snowflake piece to the card base.
For the envelope, I stamped a bunch of snowflakes using four colors of Simon ink: Teal, Mint, Blue Jay, and Soft Navy. Allison’s address was added using a teal gel pen (here are some similar pens).
