A christmas card with a snowflake wreath

Hello everyone!

We are close to christmas now – but someone is still in need of an idea for a winter-ish christmas card. I made this one and also wrote you how I made it:


I used the Christmascollage stamp on a light blue cardstock in the background – therefor I put a cut out circle in its middle so I would get a clean image where you can see through the wreath in its middle. Then I stamped on my blue cardstock all around and then stamped again only a part of the stamp in the middle of the paper. Then I used white embossing powder to heat emboss the image. To give it a softer look I put some vellum, cut just slightly smaller than the blue cardstock, on top of it. It was easy to glue it down without those ugly spots of glue that you get so easily on vellum by just adding glue to where the wreath covers it later.


In the middle there is this wreath. It’s made using the 3 different sizes of the Snowflakes stamp set. I’ve drawn a circle on white cardstock using a pencil and then used this as a guideline. I stamped the largest snowflake all around one, then used the middle sized on the outside of my wreath and the smallest on the inside. I used two different tones of blues to stamp the snowflakes. Then I cut out the wreath by hand – you really don’t have to be precise here – and covered everything with a clear embossing powder with some glitter in it. Then I used 3D tape to glue it to my card and added a bow with a little bell  and two tiny stars to the top.

Then I used the smaller one of the Merry Christmas x2 sayings. When glueing it to my acrylic block I’ve bend it slightly and then cut the banner matching the stamp’s shape by hand.

As a finishing touch I added a few rhinestones to my card.

Have a happy day everyone!

Hugs, Kathrin
