Let It Snow Snowflake Christmas Card

Hey Peaches! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. I have a lovely little Christmas card for you today. I’ve always loved how magical it is to watch delicate little snowflakes fall. They fall as light as feathers and are just as soft-much colder though, lol. As they cover the ground, they create the most amazing white scape. There’s nothing quite like a white Christmas. We don’t see a ton of them here where I live in California, but if I head a little north, I will find myself surrounded by this magical stuff. This is what has inspired my card for today.



I wanted a dreamy watercolor effect for my main snowflake so I took a piece of Watercolor Paper and put it inside the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and ran it through my Bigshot. After the gorgeous snowflake impression was made, I took my Aqua Painter and both my Calypso Coral Ink Pad and Peekaboo Peach Ink Pad and added a little watercolor right over the snowflake impression. After it dried, I cut around the entire snowflake and set it aside. I then took my Soft Sky Cardstock and used the snowflake stamps from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to a create a background of snowflakes “blowing” across the page.

After stamping my base, I added my layers of ribbon and accents and then added my embossed snowflake that I had watercolored and cut out on top. I took the “Let it snow” Stamp from Merry Little Labels Stamp Set and just heat embossed the words in Whisper White Embossing Powder. Then the last step was to add some sequins. I just love this unexpected color combo! I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project! Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!
