Vintage Snowflake

Hi Everyone,

Oh My Goodness, yesterday was a busy day. I did a Mega Stamping Event “A Stampin’ Up! Christmas” at a facility here in Jacksonville, Florida. I will share the card we did at my table today and pictures of the event and what my downline did tomorrow.

I have just been itching to show this card for 5 weeks now but had to keep it secret for the event. I hope you enjoy it.

Snowflake Card

This was done on Shimmer White Card Stock #101910 at $7.95 and a border mat of Crumb Cake ##120953 . Just a touch of Bashful Blue and one of our wonderful Antique Brads. As you can see the large snowflakes ( One in Shimmery White and one in Crumb Cake are cut using the Snowflake #2 Die #113460 at $15.95 The smaller snowflake is using on of the snowflakes from the Snowflake set $2 #113449 at $19.95.

I stamped the Merry Christmas from the Contempo Christmas Set #120594 (clear mount) and stamped it with Crumb Cake then punched out (always stamp first so you can make sure it’s straight) with the extra large Oval Punch #119859 at $16.95.

I ran the Shimmery White embossed mat through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder #120175 at $7.95.

I then sponged the edges with Crumb Cake and also the oval and the snowflakes…all but the blue snowflake.

Last but not least…..Dazzling Diamonds adhered with a two-way glue pen.

Use your paper piercer to pierce the center of the snowflakes and even through the Shimmery White mat to hold it in place with the Antique Brad. Then adhere the mat to the Crumb Cake Mat and then the card itself. That’s it!!!

I hope you enjoyed it as much as the 60 people that were there yesterday. It was so much fun……don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for the rest of the story and many more samples.

If you don’t hve a Demonstrator and would like to order any of these products you can purchase on line at my Online Store or contact me for assistance.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day Everyone!

You mentioned that you "always punch first so you can make sure it's straight." Just wondering because I always stamp first. Your card is gorgeous; so glad you were finally able to share it with us!
