Lacy Snowflake Die Focused Cards with Marine and Anja

Hello crafty friends! Marine here, super happy to be back this week with a super cute and easy shaker card showcasing Santa who is experiencing a new way to deliver the Christmas presents this year!

If you know me, you know that I like to create cute and busy scenes with lots of images. Well this time I went with a very few of them: Santa is from Holiday Express, and the hot air balloon and the banner are from Balloon Rides. And that's it. I stamped those images using an alcohol marker friendly black ink, I cut them all using the coordinating dies and then colored everything using my alcohol markers.

Once the coloring was done, I cut a Subtle Grey tone panel measuring 5,25 x 4", and I also took a plastic sleeve from stash. I cut the flap at the top of that sleeve, as well as the seams on the three other edges. I ended up with two plastic sheets, I kept on of those and applied strong double sided tape on the four edges.

I placed my grey panel in the middle of the plastic sheet, and cut the four corners off. Next I removed three of the backing papers, and folded the flaps to stick them at the back of my panel. I filled my pocket with some accessories: polymer clay peppermint candy, Pure White Jewels, clear sequins, some shiny red sequins, and a million tiny stars.

When I was happy with my shaker mix, I shook the pocket to spread the sequins inside of it, and I closed the sleeve by folding the remaining flap. Next I cut a 5,5 x 4,25" white card base, and attached my shaker panel on top using liquid glue.

I assembled the hot air balloon and the banner, and placed Santa inside the basket, and I stuck those pieces on the shaker panel using foam squares, along with my sentiment "Season's Greetings" from Holiday Express that I heat embossed on white cardstock using silver embossing powder.

Finally I used the Lacy Snowflake dies to cut some snowflakes out of white glitter cardstock, and I attached those sparkly snowflakes around the balloon.

Hello everyone, Anja here with you and today I'm sharing a shimmery winter card using the Lacy Snowflake Dies. They go perfectly with the snowflakes from the Snowflake Circle Frame Dies.

First, I started off with an A2 card base made from purple cardstock. Next, I created a watercolor background using Nuvo Shimmer Powders (Atlantis Burst and Blue Blitz) and Distress Oxide Inks (Salvaged Patina and Wilted Violet). I also added some shimmer spray to the whole background (see photo below).

To add some texture, I ran the dried background through my die cutting machine with the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder. I trimmed the panel down to be a bit smaller than A2 and adhered it to the card base.

The snowflakes were die cut from white glitter cardstock. I die cut a piece of vellum with the second largest of the Stitched Semi-Circle Dies. I stamped the scripty 'Happy New Year' sentiment from the Season's Greetings set in VersaMark Ink onto white cardstock and heat embossed it with some pretty WOW! Royal Crush Embossing Glitter. I used the coordinating word die to cut it out.

Finally, I assembled my card by scattering the snowflakes over the card. All the die-cuts are perfect to hide the adhesive behind the vellum semi-circle which I attached to the right side. I added some pearls and crystals as embellishments.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an amazing day!
