Christmas snowflakes - six ways

Blogging time has been scarce lately & Christmas is rapidly approaching so  today I'm sharing a bunch of snowflake cards. A bunch? Maybe a group of snowflakes should be called a sparkle of snowflakes 😄.  Almost all are super quick & easy to make & easily mass-produced.

They all feature one of my favourite & cheapest Holiday Catalogue faves - the Winter Wonder embossing folder. It's brilliant for quick, simple & elegant cards, so it's a total bargain for $13 (and you can have it shipped free if you order it today).

1. First up is this card from my last Christmas card class in November. I think this one's my favourite of all the snowflake cards so far. White, navy & soft sky are a beautiful combination (all year round too), especially teamed with silver. The embossed snowflake is sparkly too thanks to clear Wink of Stella.
Supply saver tip - cut the snowflakes from the navy panel. The holes are hidden behind the soft sky panel.

Stamp images inside & out are from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set (& bundle).

2. Speaking of the Snowflake Sentiments bundle, I've used both the stamps & dies on this U-bridge fold card.

These are my favourite new fold of this year. I used the same sizing as this card and Amanda Bates tutorial. Colours are pool party, dapper denim & white.

3. It doesn't get much simpler or supply friendly than this card. Just white cardstock, sponge brayered with pool party ink on the debossed side.  A dapper denim sentiment & cut snowflakes (more Snowflake Sentiments) and some silver Year of Cheer washi finishes it off.

Oh, I also painted the raised pattern with clear Wink of Stella & went nuts with rhinestones. Not sure if you can see it any better in this pic.

4. Silver mini sequin trim ramps up the Christmas sparkle on this simple layered snowflake,w hich I've again used with the snowflake debossed side up. I've scored around the edge to repeat the look. The colours are another Christmas favourite - smoky slate, night of navy, & white.

I've used sentiments from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set, inside and out for this one. Another Christmas essential that's not carrying over.

5. Another simple snowflake, this time with a banner & lovely heat embossed scripty sentiment (perennial Annual Catalogue favourite, Flurry of Wishes. Get it while it's on sale for $25.90 - until January 2nd. Team it with the Snow Flurry punch (just $18.60 on the Clearance Rack) for more snowflake options.

 6. Last but not least, another super simple snowflake in red, white & navy. An unsual snowflake combination for me, but I really like the fresh, clean, look. Snowflake Sentiments provides the sentiment again. LOVE this set. Wink of Stella provides lots of sparkle in real life too.

So that's your snowflake fix for today. Thanks for visiting & I hope you've found something to inspire you help get your Christmas cards finished or for next year. I have lots more to share so pop back soon.
Inky wishes, Di
