So...here is my card I made for the blog hop. I love it and hope you do too!


I LOVE how this card came out! First off, I cut the snowflakes from different glitter papers by American Crafts...my fave! You've seen many posts in the past of  this glitter paper. It's amazing stuff!!! So soft and smooth, and oh so very glittery!

Then I used those same dies, and cut them in various places on the front of my white card base. BEING VERY CAREFUL TO KEEP EVERY TINY PIECE!!! I turned that over and worked from the back side. First off I pressed the glittered snowflake into the cut on the card base. Then VERY CAREFULLY, I used my tweezers and took out every tiny piece of the white and put it back into place in the snowflake, still working from the back side.


Very time consuming and I used Scotch tape as I went along. I did this for each and every snowflake. When you flip it over, you can see the great look you get!!! I absolutely love this card! It's like inlaid glittered snowflakes...so pretty! Here's the inside of the card.


I mounted the base onto a piece of the blue glitter paper. Then I used foam tape and attached it to the card base. I stamped my sentiment and hand cut the flag end. I did the same with some green glitter paper only a bit larger to show underneath. I added foam tape and added it to the front of the card. I hope you like it. 

Here's what I used.

  40. I found some of that American Crafts glitter paper on sale and had to grab some after your rave reviews. I haven't used it yet but I'm excited to. I love how your card turned out. I think the one layer die cut look is awesome. Although I can not imagine having done this with the one snowflake that has a million tiny little pieces. I think you must be a very patient lady! The result is SUPER WOW!!! Beautiful job. I've enjoyed seeing you here for this release. Love ya! Hugs- Glora
