Winter Bliss Snowflake

Hello Quick Quote friends, Kathi here today to share with you two Christmas Cards using quick quotes Winter Bliss & Want2Scrap,



Winter Bliss Snowflake Christmas Cards, I used both colors of the Winter Bliss, 


I used a plastic brick stencil from Want2Scrap, Using speckling, I filled the stencil completely carefully removing the  brink form, washed it off with soap & water (so it could be used again). I set the piece of paper to the side to dry.  I also used the specking to create snow around the brink. after the brick dried I used glue that a white flocking to create a snow like look. 


On the pink paper I used three layers  of the paper layering each layer 1/4" smaller as I stacked them. The edges were distressed by using scissors. The laser snowflakes & the inside of the paper dole were distressed with the pixie pink chalking ink. the glue was applied to the snowflakes then dipped into white/clear glitter. I layered the paper with the last layer popped up using pot dots & then a light pink ribbon was created into a soft bow, Want2scrap bling was added to the center of each of the snowflakes. 

Supplies Used:
    Enamel Dots

Christmas Cards front view

 These are the Xyron products used on this projects 



61 days until Christmas Day, and 42 days before I mail my Christmas cards out to friends & family.

CARD 1 - Winter Bliss Tree


I started out with a basic white card stock for the card. This card is 4 1/4 X 5 !/2. I cut the blue patterned paper QQP-WI103 to measure 4 X 5 1/4. I then ran it through the big shot using a cuttlebug embossing folder "Snow Flakes" The tree was created with 1/2 strips of paper trimming each of the ends  indicated above,  The numbers of the paper collection I used was QQP-WI105 for the bottom layer working up QQP-WI101 THEN QQP-WI04 and the top layer is the backside of QQP-WI104.
I stamped Merry Christmas with Aqua PowderPuff Chalking Ink on white card stock which was layered on QQP-WI102. A sentiment was also stamped on the inside of the card. The finishing touch to card 1 was a yarn string, buttons and a pink snowflake to top of the tree. 

CARD 2 - Sleigh Ride

Card 2 base card is also a basic white card stock measuring 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 in the landscape position. QQP-WI103 measuring 4 X 51/4" placing the blue paper on to the white card stock layering a piece of patterned paper QQP-WI104 (white with blue diamond/dot side) measuring 3 3/4 X 5" on top of the blue. A piece of white card stock was placed into the embossing folder "Snow Flakes" then layer it over the patterned paper. I cut out the sleigh and reindeer out of QQP-WI 103, running both through the Xyron sticker maker, then placed then on to the Snow flake back ground flying in the air.
