Merry Christmas Flurry
by Tiffany Pryce
Hey friends! Tiffany here with a new card design to share. It's time to kick my holiday cardmaking into high gear, so I'm sharing more holiday inspiration with you. I saw a sketch challenge recently using snowflakes and several layers, and I was immediately inspired. I love snowflakes so I had to create a design based on the sketch. I will link it here in case you want to see the original inspiration and create your own design. This card was pretty easy to create so let's dive into the details.
I love the gorgeous paper in the Glitzy Glitter pad so I chose a pretty dark blue as the background and trimmed it to 5 x 3.75 inches. I die cut several snowflakes from the Adelaide Snowflakes and Diamond Snowflake dies. I also trimmed several layers from aqua, light aqua, and matte silver cardstock. The aqua cardstock is from the Fresh Aqua paper pad and the silver cardstock is from the Rainbow Reflections Mirror paper pad.
I adhered all of the cardstock layers and the snowflakes down with liquid glue to mirror the sketch. It takes a bit longer for the glue to dry on the glitter cardstock, so I used a stamping block on top while everything dried.
While the snowflakes were drying, I die cut my sentiment. I die cut the Proper Merry Christmas sentiment from white cardstock and from dark blue cardstock from the Ocean Blue paper pad. I popped out the letters on the dark blue die cut and adhered just the outer layer. I then adhered the sentiment with foam tape on the card front. To embellish the card, I added a few Fairy Jewels to the center of the snowflakes.
