Issa Snowflake | By Alicia Havranek

Hello!  Who has already started on their Christmas cards?  These dies from Birch Press Designs sure puts me in the mood to get a head start.

For the card today I used the Issa Snowflake layering die (layering A only) and the Big Peace Sugar Script Die.

My first steps were to take some watercolor paper and do a little ink smooshing with Distress Oxide Ink in Mermaid Lagoon.  I dried between the three layers of ink to create different variations in color.

Once I got a look I was pleased with I added some white splatter with the Distress Oxide Picket Fence re-inker.

While that dried I gathered some silver glitter card stock to use for the snowflake die.  What I love about this die is that it is so versatile.  This die is a set of 3, but I only used one die, Layer A.  Look at what you get with one die cut!

You can create 3 different looks!  I can only imagine how beautiful this die would look with the other two layers.

I die cut out the two inner pieces of the snowflake a few times.  I wanted enough to fill my card panel which measured 5 1/4″ x 4.”

I then glued all the snowflake pieces to my card panel once the white splatter was dry.  I die cut out the Peace Script Die out of some light blue and white card stock.  I then added some foam tape for dimension and attached my sentiment.  I added fun foam to the back of my panel and adhered it to my card base.

I love these layering dies so much.  One layer can create such a beautiful card. Hope you enjoyed today’s card!
