Festive Flurry

Hi There!

Every month, the LiveLoveCards community has a monthly challenge and I always try to be a part of it – it gives me inspiration for a card and makes me think about the next project a few days in advance. This month’s challenge is SNOWFLAKES! So I pulled out this Festive Flurry set that became available through Stampin’ Up! two years ago. It’s now retired but I feel so fortunate that I was able to get these last year during Stampin’ Up!’s holiday sales!

Festive Flurry 1

Don’t be fooled by this card! It really wasn’t hard to make. I think the part that took the longest was the distress ink blending – haha. I stamped a piece of Neenah White cardstock with a Falling Snow background stamp in Versamark ink, covered it in pearl white embossing powder, then heat set it. Then I covered the panel by blending with Shaded Lilac distress ink.

Festive Flurry 2

The snowflake itself is layered with different sizes of the snowflake (from the bottom) in Dusty Concord ink, silver embossing powder, Seedless Preserves ink, and Shaded Lilac Ink. Lots of dimensionals used! I also added the ribbon between the first two snowflakes at the bottom to give it an ornament feel.

I hope you like it! All the supplies will be listed below. Here is my video if you’d like to watch it come together:

    • I hear ya! I felt pretty lucky last year. But there are so many companies that sell similar products and you can definitely do the same things with it. I don’t know of any larger snowflake sets off the top of my head but I’m sure you can find something!
