Here is the Christmas card I made for the demonstrator swap. As I have mentioned before, I do not use traditional red and green. So this card is a flip card that opens out. The colors are blushing bride, silver and white ribbon. I took alot of pictures so you could see how the snowflake is done.

 Here is the recipe:

STAMP SET: Letterpress winter*
CARD STOCK: Blushing Bride 5-1/2” x 6”
                            White Vellum 3-1/2” square
                            Silver Foil 1” x 1”
INK: Silver Metallic Encore Pad
ACCESSORIES: Northern Flurry Embossing Folder
                              Snowflake Card Thinlit*
                              Silver Embossing Powder
                              Stampin’ Glue Stick
                              Multipurpose Liquid Glue
                              5/8” Organza Ribbon 15”
                             Big Shot
                             Waxed Paper
                             Pierce Mat

  1. Use big shot to cut out snowflake card.
  2. Emboss using folder.
  3. Stamp & emboss large snowflake.
  4. Cut out using the thinlit, rotate and cut a 2nd time.
  5. adhere with glue stick.
  6. Cut out “joy” and use liquid glue to adhere.
  7. Fold and add ribbon.

TIP: Cut your paper at 5-1/2″ so you can get 2 cards out of
a sheet of paper. Use painters tape to secure your card
stock inside the thinlit.

Use Silver Encore Pad to ink up stamp.

TIP: I used my pierce mat to give a little cushion to ensure you
get a good stamped image–especially in the middle

Again use tape to secure the embossed image and run through
big shot.

Here you can see that part of the snowflake has not been cut out.

TIP: Rotate the snowflake .You can feel the grooves that
have already been cut. Secure with tape and run through
big shot again.
Now it’s ready to be glued. Be sure to cover all areas.

TIP:When using thinlits that are detailed, use waxed
paper to ensure it pops right out. Layer the
silver foil paper, waxed paper, and thinlit. Then
cut out.

Happy stampin’,
