Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle

I used the new Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle to create a card to share with you today. It’s never too early to begin your Christmas cards, just one more thing to mark off your long list of things to be completed in time!

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jairi

My sketch was inspired by the As You See It Challenge #157

As You See It Challenge #157

When I saw the dies in the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets set, I knew I had to have this bundle.  Remember to bundle and save 10%!  I will link a video created by Stampin’ Up! at the end of my post so that you can see more of this fabulous set.  

I started with a panel of Whisper White and adhered a little smaller panel of Merry Music Specialty DSP to it with liquid glue.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments in VersaMark ink onto a panel of Basic Black, sprinkled it with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed it until smooth and  shiny.  Once cooled, I adhered a panel of Silver Foil to the sentiment panel and wrapped it with 1/8″ Silver Ribbon and tied a bow.

Next, I die cut two of the Swirly Snowflake dies from Silver Foil, cut them down some with my Paper Snips and adhered them to the back of the sentiment panel with liquid glue.  Once the glue was dry, I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front.  I die cut two snowflakes, adhered them in the center with my Fine Tip Glue Pen, added a half of a Mini Dimensional and popped it onto the sentiment panel.

One Rhinestone Basic Jewel was added to the center of the single snowflake and three others were added to the DSP. Finally, the whole art panel was adhered to the Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The inside sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink and sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed onto a panel of Whisper White.  I added a strip of the same DSP with a Silver Foil mat to the bottom of the panel and then adhered it to the card base.  One more snowflake was created from the two snowflake dies from the bundle and adhered with glue.  One Rhinestone was then added to the center and I was finished!  

A list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.
