CAS Snowflake Card Tutorial and Video

Hi there! Today I have another Let It Snow card and video.

Here is the video. Scroll down for the step by step photos.

Start by cutting Pure Luxury White cardstock to make a 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch top fold card. I like to go ahead and score my card base, when I plan to stamp directly on it, but leave it unfolded while I stamp. This way it lies flat, but the fold line helps me see the finished card size, so I don't accidentally stamp onto the back. 

Using one of the larger snowflakes, from Let It Snow, stamp once with Gina K Turquoise Sea and once with Ocean Mist. 

Switch to a smaller snowflake and stamp using Gina K Blue Raspberry.

Stamp to an even smaller snowflake and stamp with both Blue Raspberry and Ocean Mist.

Switch to one more snowflake and stamp using Gina K Turquoise Sea.

Use a Quickie Glue Pen to apply adhesive to the snowflakes, then sprinkle iridescent glitter over them, tapping off the excess. Set the card base aside.

Trim a piece of cardstock to 1 ¼ inches wide and trim the end with scissors to make a banner. Stamp using three different snowflakes, with Gina K Ocean Mist, Turquoise Sea and Powder Blue. Set banner aside.

Cut and emboss white cardstock using Spellbinders® Petite Labels One Die D-Lites die template and sponge Gina K Ocean Mist ink while still in the die template.

Stamp the sentiment, also from Let It Snow, using Gina K Turquoise Set.

Stamp a second time, using Gina K Navy ink, offset slightly.

Add a ribbon bow to the card front, then adhere the banner layer. Use 3D Foam Squares, by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere the sentiment layer.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fantastic day!
