I’ve fallen in love with the new Showflake Showcase bundle (see the blog hop here for more) and couldn’t wait to crack out the snowflake dies. I always love any stamp set with a pretty snowflake and even more so if there are dies! Along with the stamps, I also couldn’t wait to stamp on, punch and emboss the amazing White Velvet Paper. It may not look like much, but wait til you see it in real life! I’ve made a card that I think shows off the beauty of it a little more.
Snowflake and White Velvet card
To make the card, I cut a Smoky Slate card blank and trimmed a piece of White Velvet Paper to leave a 5mm border all the way around. I then used the dies and the new Embossing Mats to impress the snowflakes into the paper without cutting it. There are multiple sizes of snowflake dies in the bundle so this was done really quickly and easily.
Then I cut a silver foil snowflake and a piece of Smoky Slate with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. I added a greeting from the Snow is Glistening Stamp Set with some Merry Merlot ink and popped it over the adhered die cuts using Dimensionals. I added a small strip of Basic Grey card to the bottom edge to make the white pop. And that’s it!
I hope that simple card gives you another way to use these amazing dies and increases your love of the White Velvet Paper – because it’s gorgeous!
If you’d like to order these, they’ll be available on November 1st, in the meantime soak up the inspiration and get planning your makes using this gorgeous bundle…
