Create Christmas Cards in fun, non-traditional colors adding Wonderful Snowflakes in any color


  • Stampin' Up! Wonderful Snowflakes can be any color
  • Stampin' Up! Merry Moments Stamp Set
  • Stampin' Up! $75 Starter Kit Promotion Ends 30 November 2021
Today's card in non-traditional holiday colores uses Blushing Bride, Silver Foil, Basic White  and the Wonderful Snowflakes.  The Wonderful Snowflakes had a pearlescent side and a plain white side.  Using your Blending Bushes, you can color the plain white side to any our our ink colors to match your cardstock.  I colored mine with Blushing Bride ink to match the Blushing Bride cardstock on my basecard.  I added a sentiment from the Merriest Moments Stamp Set, a few Pastel Pearls and a Silver Foil stitched Snowflake and my card was complete.  If you're looking for a easy card layout for a large quantity of Christmas Cards, this card idea is a perfect time-saver.

The basecard for this card is Blushing Bride Cardstock.  Then a layer of one of the  Silver Foil Sheets from the Silver Foil 12" X 12" Specialty Pack.  Then a Basic White Layer.

Next, I used a Blending Brush to color one of the Wonderful Snowflakes Blushing Bride.  Tip:  I found it helpful to color the Wonderful Snowflake BEFORE detaching it from the backing.  I also found that I could create a stencil effect while coloring the Wonderful Snowflakes with a Blending Bush.  So, I could stencil a snowflake image onto the front corner of an envelope at the same time I was coloring the plain side of a Wonderful Snowflake.  Once it was colored, I removed the Wonderful Snowflake from its backing and it was ready to add to my card front.

Before adding the colored Wonderful Snowflake to my card, I cut a piece of Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge ribbon and layered it on my card.  Then I added the Wonderful Ribbon and then a Silver Foil Stitched Snowflake cut with one of the Stitched Snowflake Dies. I stamped a sentiment from the Merriest Moments Stamp Set in Smoky Slate ink onto the lower portion of the card.
