Leafy Snowflake Frame.
by Candice Crawford
Hi there Crafty Friends,
Candice here from Papercrafting Elegance, back to share another holiday card. Today's card although is holiday themed, has a lot of versatility and can also be used as a winter themed birthday or thank you card, by simply changing the sentiment and patterned paper.
The products I used for my project are the Leafy Snowflake Frame and the Double Stitched Rectangle Frames die sets. This card came together quickly and was a breeze to make. Clean and simple is one of my favorite styles to use when mass producing holiday cards.
To create this card, I first cut the Leafy Snowflake die twice from a piece of white cardstock and then again from a piece of red cardstock. I snipped both sets of snowflakes from their frames, then separated the snowflakes into outlines and inlaid pieces.
Next I inlaid the white snowflake piece into the red snowflake outline to create a red and white inlaid snowflake. These red and white snowflake pieces are held together with scotch tape on the reverse side.
Next I took a piece of 6x6 pattern paper from the Dashing Holiday Paper Pad by Memory Box and cut it to 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 for the background on my card. I then die cut the largest frame from the Double Stitched Rectangle Frames die set from a piece of red cardstock and added the fame to the patterned paper with some liquid glue.
I then adhered the inlaid snowflake to the card using some 3M foam tape. Lastly I added some silver rhinestones to each of the six points on the snowflake points and one rhinestone to the center for a bit of shimmer and shine.
To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment "warmest wishes" from the Flower Garden stamp set in Versamark onyx black ink onto a 1/2 inch strip of white cardstock and adhered the sentiment just below the snowflake with foam tape. I think this card is absolutely stunning.
I hope you all enjoyed today's project and found a bit of inspiration. Thank you all for joining me today. I wish you all a Happy New Year! and look forward to sharing more projects with you in 2020.
