Lapis Lazuli Snowflake card



How about a Christmas card today? Does this one make you think frosty thoughts? This is a fun and easy card that anyone can make. Just order a batch of cards and chipboard snowflakes from Creative Cuts and More, and then turn your kids loose with the glitter. They will have a great time making a bunch of Christmas cards for your stash.

I used the 5 1/4" Square Scallop Card in Ice Gold cardstock and a Snowflake #01 - Large cut from heavyweight chipboard. The Ice Gold (Curious Metallics) is a gorgeous shimmery cardstock, and it is a nice sturdy thickness that can stand up without buckling under the weight of the glittered chipboard.

I covered the chipboard snowflake with liquid adhesive and covered it with the blue glitter and set it aside to dry. Then I pulled out my 1/4" Killer Red Tacky Tape and adhered a couple of lengths of it to the bottom of the inside of the card. I wanted the scallops to pop up so I covered the tape with the same blue glitter and shook off the excess. Don't you love the way the scallop edge stands out against the glittery edge?

You and your kids would have a great time making these cards in so many different colors. You can pick up the cards, the snowflakes, the tacky tape, and many different colors of glitter at Creative Cuts and More today. Have fun shopping and getting glittery!
