Making flip cards with the Snowflake Card Thinlits Dies from Stampin’ Up! is so easy! I used the die set and the Letterpress Winter photopolymer stamp set to create my card to share today. One of the things that I really love about this card is that it’s thin enough that it can be mailed with just one postage stamp!
My card design was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 234.
I put together a quick tutorial for how I created the card base. You can see it here on my Tutorials page. This idea came from Sandi MacIver, who made a card last fall that featured an extended panel using the Circle Card Thinlits Die. You can see her card here and she has a video showing how she created her card.
Once I had the card base created and the strips of DSP cut around the snowflake, I stamped the snowflake image from the Letterpress Winter photopolymer stamp set in Lost Lagoon over the flipped snowflake. I actually stamped the image on both sides of the card, but if you only want it to show when the card is close, you do need place the card face down and stamp the snowflake image that way.
I cut a panel of Silver Foil Sheets and Lost Lagoon card stock with the dies from the Snowflake Card Thinlits Dies set (be sure to place wax paper between your die and card stock so that you can easily remove the die cuts) and adhered them to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I stamped the sentiment from the Endless Wishes photopolymer stamp set in Lost Lagoon ink on a panel of the All Is Calm DSP, then adhered that panel to the card front with SNAIL. I also added three of the large sequins from the Frosted Sequins pack to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them.
I added a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card and stamped the snowflake images from the Letterpress Winter stamp set in Lost Lagoon and Soft Sky inks inside the card.

So beautiful Amy. So soft and calming, perfect for Christmas. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Kristi! I appreciate your comments. 🙂
I really like the flap you added to this sideways opening card, Sandi MacIver and you are so clever! The landscape twist is different from what I’ve seen before and the panel with the snowflakes on the inside is perfect to add your Christmas picture with the WW panel for your message. If we are being super speedy, you could print out the message on the computer instead. What a beautiful card Amy, it’s serene and elegant! 😉 It’s getting harder to resist getting this set RIGHT NOW, instead of waiting for my budget, lol!!
Thanks so much Jill! And budget??? I’m not familiar with that term when it comes to stamps. 😉
ROTFL, I’m in stiches! I guess my budget could be called Husband 🙂 I try to make “it” stop squeaking (really booming is more accurate)!
Hee hee! I can completely relate. 😉
Beautiful card, Amy!
Thanks so much Melanie! 🙂
Such a beautiful card, Amy. And I love your ‘budget’ comment. Many of us can relate.
Thanks Barb! I’m glad that I’m not the only one with that budget issue. 🙂
Gorgeous card, Amy! Thanks so much for the inspiration!
Thanks so much Vera! 🙂
With this size/length of the card you do have more room to write inside it rather than if you had it turned length wise, were you wouldn’t have that much room to write I side.
