I used the Stampin’ Up! Snow is Glistening stamp set, the Snowfall Thinlits Dies and Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies to create a clean and simple Christmas card to share with you today. The Snowflake Showcase items are only available while supplies last during November, so order soon to make sure that you get yours! You can see the details here.
My card was loosely inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #361.
The colors for my card were inspired by As You See It Challenge #188.
I started by embossing a panel of Merry Merlot card stock with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I cut a panel of White Velvet Sheets with three of the Snowfall Thinlits Dies and I adhered them together and then to the embossed panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I trimmed the snowflakes even with the edge of the embossed panel and then adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Merry Merlot card stock with SNAIL.
I wrapped a strand of Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the panel and adhered it with SNAIL and then adhered the layered panel to a Merry Merlot card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut panels of Merry Merlot card stock and Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper with one of the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. I adhered the two die cuts together and then to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I colored one of the Snowflake Trinkets with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends Marker and then adhered it to the card front with a rolled up Glue Dot to finish it.
I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes from the Snow is Glistening photopolymer stamp set in Merry Merlot ink (stamped off once for the snowflakes) on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

Amy, this is so beautiful and has so many different pretty textures! I can see this layout and design looking amazing using different colors, like navy, for instance. Wouldn’t that be striking? Thank you for always bringing your wonderful talent to the table every time you create~ Hugs

This is a lovely card, Amy. I love all the layers and the colours of red that you chose. Since this is a speed stamping challenge as well, could you let us know how long it took you to make your card? Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenge!
Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment! Sorry that I forgot to put the time in, it took me 8 minutes 45 seconds from the time that I started embossing until the time that I glued on the final snowflake. 🙂
