Hello Honey Bee friends! I sure hope your holidays have been good so far! Now that the holiday cards are out, I’m needing some thank you cards! Today I’m sharing this quick and easy card featuring the Lovely Layers: Large Snowflakes and the Let It Snow stamps and Honey Cuts!
First I created my double-fold card base. I cut a piece of 80# Neenah to 8-½” x 5-½”. Then I used my score board to score a line at each end at 2-1/8″. Next I trimmed some dotted patterned paper from the Pinstripes & Polka Dots: Holiday paper pad into two 2-1/8″ x 5-½” panels.
I used Bee Creative Glue to adhere the pink panels to each side of the card base.
I chose a sentiment from the Mini Messages: Holiday stamp set and stamped it in the same pink ink and used a Mini Messages Banners die to cut it out. I also die cut two more banners to glue to the back of the sentiment to add dimension and stability.
For the sparkly snowflake, I first added a piece of a Tear Tape sheet to 80# Neenah. (Leave the top backing sheet on.) I chose a snowflake from the Lovely Layers: Large Snowflakes and placed it on top of the cardstock with the backing sheet facing up.
After I ran the snowflake through my die cutting machine, I used my die release tool to remove the backing from the adhesive. Then I sprinkled on some iridescent chunky glitter (using a coffee filter to catch the excess glitter) and pressed the glitter into the adhesive.
I layered the three snowflakes and adhered the two smaller ones on top of the large one with glue. Next I added glue to the back of the large snowflake, but only to the left side!! You don’t want to glue it to both sides or your card will not open!
To finish up I adhered the sentiment, again, adding glue only to the left half of the back of it. I added a pretty gem sticker to the center of the snowflakes (from the Holiday Wishes Gem Stickers).
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a safe New Year’s eve and a wonderful start to 2024! See you next year!
