Merry Christmas (Snowflake Showcase)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, today is the last day to purchase items in the Snowflake Showcase.  I’m going to miss this suite as it has such potential – not only for Christmas but for year round occasions.  I was looking at the Christmas Tree shape in the Snow is Glistening stamp set earlier and I was admiring the pretty patterns.  It crossed my mind that it would look BEAUTIFUL as a background so I had to give it a go.

Here’s the tree…

As the stamp is photopolymer it is really easy to look through the stamp and position it exactly where you want it to go.  If you don’t quite match it up or even if it overlaps a little, don’t worry, it will still look really good.

Here’s the card…


Doesn’t that look fabulous?  No one would ever know that you used a Christmas Tree to create the background.

I used the flourish die from the Snowfall Thinlits die set to add a bit of extra flair to the card.  My biggest tip for this part of the design is to use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets on your cardstock before you run it through your Big Shot.  This makes it SO easy to adhere the die cut piece perfectly in place.

I thought it might be fun to create another card using more traditional colours, plus add little more sparkle.

Here’s the card…


I hope this inspires you to look at the stamps you have in a different way.  If you do end up trying this technique, I’d love to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping, Kylie
