Have you seen all of the new items in the store? So many brand new beautiful stamps and dies! When I first saw the Glitz Snowflake set, my heart actually skipped a beat! I have long been a fan of Birch Press Design snowflakes, but these are the prettiest ones yet! And in true Birch Press Design style, there are three different layers, making them even more versatile and fun to create with.
I like to get a head start on my Christmas card each year, so I really appreciate having new holiday themed items already in the store!
I decided to create a note card without a sentiment so that it could be sued for either a Christmas card or a holiday thank you!
I started by sponging on some Distress Oxide inks to a white square background.
I then lightly spritzed it with water. The ink is very reactive with water so it creates a fun splatter look.
I then die cut the Glitz Snowflake Layer C out of my inked background. I also die cut the Glitz Snowflake Layer A out of white cardstock.
I covered the white snowflake with a fine prisma glitter. I have found the easiest way to do this is to spray the die cut with spray adhesive and then sprinkle on the glitter. This ensures a full glitter coverage.
I then layered the snowflakes together by adding liquid glue to just the center parts of the snowflakes.
I tucked in the die cut snowflakes back into the sponged background. I added dimensional foam to the back and mounted it to a white card base.
What about you? Do you like to start creating your holiday cards early?
Thanks for joining me here today!

This is such a beautiful card! I absolutely love this snowflake die. It’s so delicate and pretty! I have not started making my Christmas cards yet but I need to!

This is just gorgeous Laurie and yes, I DO like to start my cards early. I. (like everyone) have enough to do building up to Christmas and I don’t need my card making to add to the list. Besides shopping/wrapping/cleaning, I make a lot of food items to give out as well so the last thing I need is to wait on the jobs I can have done in advance. LOL

This card is incredibly beautiful !! The die-cut snowflake looks like it’s made out of lacework (I hope this is the right word…). Totally breathtaking !!
