The lull between New Year’s and Valentine’s Day, when all of the holiday gift-giving and receiving is done, is the perfect time to send out cheery winter thank you notes that make the snow and cold seem a little less chilly. And the frosty shimmer of Stardream Metallic Cardstocks is the ideal finish for creating snowy cards and tags.
Start by trimming a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock to 4.5″ x 6.5″ and masking off 0.75″ on each side with low-tack tape or masking paper. Then blend pale blue, purple, and pink Distress Oxide Inks in a smooth gradient over the open space with a sponge blending tool.
Dip a paintbrush in water or generously squeeze a water brush and tap the handle to splatter tons of tiny water droplets over the ink blended piece. Allow the droplets to dry and turn snowy white.
Peel the masking paper or tape off carefully and then stamp a fun wintry sentiment on the card front in black ink.
Die-cut different shapes and sizes of snowflakes from both Crystal and Aquamarine Stardream Metallic Cardstocks. The white die-cuts will be adhered on top of the blue die-cuts with liquid glue at a slight offset.
Trim pieces of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and Amethyst Stardream Metallic Cardstock to 10″ x 7″ and 6.75″ x 4.75″, respectively. Score the white panel down the center to form an A7 white card base and adhere the purple panel to the front with a tape runner.
Although just a simple design, I love how the shimmer of the Stardream Metallic Cardstocks really adds to the wintry feel of this card!
