A Square Snowflake Card

Square SnowflakeI was playing with the Festive Flurry framelits and stamps and decided to try something a little different.  I used the framelit on the dsp and then embossed a square of white card stock with silver embossing powder and put that behind the dsp.  I probably should have popped up the dsp on the white card stock, but didn’t think about that until after I’d already adhered it down.  I hate it when that happens!

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Such a pretty card, and then to read your description really surprised me. I’d thought the snowflake was die-cut and added! The ribbon and embellishment are the perfect 3D effect and are so pretty! I love your card (and “hate when ‘that’ happens” too; lol)!!!! It’s really pretty!

    • Sorry I’ve confused you! I started by die cutting the snowflake image using the framelit on the red dsp (let’s call this layer 1). Then I took a square of white card stock and embossed the snowflake image with silver embossing powder on it (layer 2). I then put layer 1 on top of layer 2. In other words, the embossed silver snowflake is an inlaid layer. Clear as mud?

      • I must be pretty dense today–Let’s see if I get it
        1 use snowflake die on dsp and remove cut snowflake leaving hole
        2 did you put the cut snowflake on the white card stock and emboss it
        3 did you then place the 1st layer (dsp) on top of that white paper with the embossed snow flake on it?
        4 If this is correct—-was it necessary to adhere the snow flake to the white paper
        Hope I made some sense here

  2. I love your card Amy! It’s really different with the red dsp and the square shape. I like the dsp you used as it mirrors some of the shapes in the snowflake. Nicely done, no matter how it is layered!

  3. Love your card. Adhering the DSP layer flat to the embossed layer is really nice especially for the right side edge you can keep the smallest details intact.
