I've got another fast and easy holiday card for you today. I'm using the same color combination as I did in yesterday's post, as I really love Not Quite Navy for holiday cards.
For this card, I used two new items that are coming out September 1st in the Holiday Mini Catalog (go to Stampin' UP's website on Sept. 1st to see it - it's AMAZING!). I used the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (on pg. 26) to emboss a piece of Not Quite Navy cardstock and then swiped around the edges with White Craft ink for a frosty look. I mounted this on a piece of Whisper White cardstock as my card base.
I embossed one of the greetings from the Four the Holidays set with white embossing powder.
To create some extra dimension and some pop of color and contrast by die cutting some snowflakes using the new Northern Frost Decorative Strip in my Big Shot machine with some Whisper White cardstock.
This new decorative strip die includes 8 unique snowflakes of different sizes and look fantastic with colored, white, shimmery cardstocks and also from patterned papers!
I used an Hobby blade to pop out the small pieces inside the snowflakes but you can also use a stylus, as well. It's hard to see in this picture, but I went over each of the snowflakes with a 2-Way glue pen and then dusted them with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
I mounted two of the snowflakes on top of my card with Stampin' Dimensionals, which gives the card a 3-D feel since two of the snowflakes are popped up, one is adhered flat to the card and then there is the texture of the embossed cardstock.
