Easy Peasy Snowflakes

Sometimes you just need a super simple project that goes together with little effort.  A card that is seasonal but can be used for any occasion.  Something you can "have on hand" for when you need it.  I'm sure you know what I mean ... and I can tell you that these two fit the bill!

First I stamped snowflakes in three different shades of blue all over a sheet of our Whisper White cardstock.  The stamps in our Serene Snowflakes set (currently available for a limited time in our Holiday Mini Catalog ... don't miss out) are just beautiful.  The detail provided in each stamp makes me think of more than just snowflakes.  I'm sure that big one could appear on a future project as a large medallion!

Next I used our Snowflakes Dies #2 and cut out different shaped flakes.  The great thing about die cut snowflakes is that you can snip off the "arms" and make the shapes into something entirely different.  A snowflake arm could become a branch, or a reindeer antler, or more!  Of course each snowflake got a dusting of glitter - has anyone ever seen a snowflake that doesn't sparkle?!

A decorative punch along the edges, cutting cardstock to size, some layering, and TADA ... an Easy Peasy card!  I'm sure you could come up with even more ideas for this great set and the coordinating dies. 

Enjoy your evening and I hope to see you back soon!
