Add drama using Foil Snowflakes to your handmade Cristmas Cards

  • Stunning Foil Snowflakes.
  • Pruchase Early Release Carols of Christmas stamp now

Foil Snowflakes 

Want to make a statement with your Christmas cards this year?  Add these wonderful Foil Snowflakes to your Wish List from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog coming September 1.  These foil  Snowflakes are from the Year of Cheer Suite from the new catalog, but you'll find they compliment a wide range of your holiday projects.  

I can't stop looking at this card!  I added these Foil Snowflakes as one of the first products on my pre-order list from the upcoming Holiday catalog.  These new metallic snowflakes include both gold and silver in a package of 24 total -- 12 of each.     


Sentiment is from the Snowflakes Sentiment stamp set

I used two gold foil snowflakes on this card.  One is glued flat and the second is accordian folded and cut in half with half underneith the top of the sentiment and the other half peeking out from underneath the bottom of the sentiment tag.  

The background for this card was created with a base card of Basic Black, a layer of Gold foil and another layer of Basic Black.  I also layered a dot pattern from the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate sheets on top.

The sentiment tag was punched using a new punch available in the Holiday catalog, called Everyday Label Punch.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is embossed in Gold and the stamp is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set.  

The bow uses the gold edged 3/8" Metalic -Edge ribbon.  Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes were added to the right and left edges of the sentiment tag.  I added 3 glue dots to the top and 3 to the bottom edge of the sentiment tag and lightly pressed onto the folded gold snowflakes.  You can see the texture the folded foil snowflake adds in the photos below.

Star of Light from Stampin' Up!

  • Star of Light stamp set featured
  • Download a free copy of the new, Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog
  • Final day for 25% off this week's weekly specials 

Star of Light from Stampin' Up!

I used the wonderful, new elements from the Star of Light stamp set and the Starlight thinlit die set to create this card. 

Star of Light and Starlight thinlit dies

The card was difficult to photograph due to the shine from the silver embossing and the Silver Foil paper used for the stars, so you'll see several different views today.

The elements on this stamp set are embossed with Silver embossing powder. The new Big Shot Platform, paired with the Preciaon Base Plate and the Die Brush makes it easy to remove these detailed star die cuts. from the Starlight Thinlit dies, which coordinate with the Star of Light stamp set.  Save 10% when you buy the Star of Light Stamp Set and Starlight Thinlits Dies together as a bundle (143508).

Stamps: Star of Light 
Ink: Versa-Mark
Paper: Rich Razzelberry, Sweet Sugarplum, Pink Piroutte, Night of Navy, Silvr Foil

Accessories and tools:  Silver embossing powder, Embossing Buddy, Silver 3/4" Satin Ribbon,  Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder, Starlight Thinlit Dies,Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, New Big Shot Platform, Precision Base Plate, Standard Cutting Pads

Each card catches the light a little differently highlighting different aspects of this set.

I took about 20 more photos of these cards than I normally take trying to capture the details of this wonderful set.
