Snowflake Arch Christmas Card

A deceptively simple card to make.    

Start with a square of ice white pearlescent card.    Stamp the Snowflake arch stamp using Silver Dollar embossing powder in opposite corners.   Heat set and place Snowflake die over each impression in turn.   Carefully raise die cut areas.  

Die cut snowflakes again in another piece of cardstock.    Cover in clear glue and sprinkle with sparklicious glitter.    Set aside to dry.

Glue additional snowflakes in place over the corresponding snowflakes on the card front using 3D foam pads for dimension.  Die cut sentiment die several times and glue together carefully to form a dimensional greeting.  Glue into centre area of card front.  Run a glue pen around the edges of the card front and sprinkle with iridescent glitter.

Take a 7" x 7" card blank and cut a piece of silver mirror card slightly smaller.   Mat onto the card.   Cut a piece of coordinating designer paper (dp) 0.5cm smaller all around to leave a larger border and stick to mirror card card on front.

Stick Snowflake topper section of cardstock to the card blank section at a pleasing angle.    Finally finish with silver border peel off around card and topper sections and apply gemstones to taste.
