Cuttlebug Snowflake Card

What, no stamping? Yep, that’s right, not a single stamp was inked in the making of this card.  The sentiment is from Season’s Greetings again – you can make several different cards all from one sheet of greetings.  I’m all in favour of simple, but deceptively complex looking cards at Christmas.

Materials used:

  • Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder
  • Nestability Snowflake die
  • Artylicious Season’s Greetings CD
  • Card from Essential Card Pack, plus lavender card
  • Mountain Meadow Big’n’Juicy inkpad
  • Brayer
  • Snowflake embellishment
  • Dictionary paper
  1. Print out a greeting from the Season’s Greetings CD, trim and mount onto lavender card.
  2. Cut the three snowflake layers from dictionary paper, then carefully ink the edges of each layer using colours picked up from the Mountain Meadow inkpad. Assemble with a snowflake embellishment in the centre, held together with a brad.
  3. Ink up the brayer with the Mountain Meadow inkpad then roll lightly onto scrap paper. Roll the brayer onto the inside of the front of the Cuttlebug folder. To make the background coloured and keep the snowflakes white, you need to ink up the side of the folder that has the snowflake shaped holes in it.
  4. Don’t roll backwards and forwards, just roll in one movement to keep the colours from blending.
  5. Put a piece of Starlight white card (from the Essential Card Pack) into the folder and run through the Cuttlebug. When you remove it, the ink should have transferred to the background with the raised, embossed snowflakes showing up white against it. When the ink is dry, stick onto a lavender layer.
  6. Stick embossed panel onto a white card, stick on the greeting and add the snowflake with a foam pad.
