Classic, beautiful and dramatic, it works for just about anyone on your holiday mailing list. Once again, I feature black and white like I did with this card. I hadn’t realized how much I tended to use these colours (or non-colours really)! They’re just so clean and to me, clean equals simple! Maybe you think so too.
Don’t you just love the beautiful Winter Wonder embossing folder? It can completely stand on its own, even with a larger card like this one. See how easy this super simple three step snowflake card is to make for yourself.
- Basic Black cardstock 5” x 10” scored at 5”
- Whisper White 4 1/2” x 4 1/2”
- Centre white cardstock in Winter Wonderland textured impressions embossing folder and run through Big Shot
- Stamp greeting in bottom right in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and glue to front of folded card base.
- Adhere medium clear faceted gem to middle of snowflake
If you have another two minutes and want to get REALLY fancy, make a stamped inside too. The greeting is stamped in Tuxedo Black and Basic Grey for the snowflake (for a bit of variety). I used a couple different sets here to finalize the card because I love the simplicity and font for this greeting.
We sometimes think we need to get elaborate, piling embellishments and ribbon onto a couple techniques and a few colours, to have a beautiful card. NOT! This card is a fabulous example of less is more.
Here’s the few supplies to make it yourself.
You Can Make It Too
When I designed this card, it quickly became a favourite. So much so, it was one of my easy Holiday Open House make’n takes. That work table was tidy and finished up lickety split so I know how quickly it goes together. Minimal supplies and a stellar embellishment are all it takes for a super simple three step snowflake card…why not try one today?
