Snowflake cards | SSS card kit & Giveaway

Hi! Today I am showcasing the January card kit by SimonSaysStamp. The kit is called “Snowflake Builder” and I just love the color combo! It includes lots of fun products such as snowglobes, a stamp set, a snowflake die, a jar of matte medium, a blue alcohol ink, mica flakes, patterned paper, cardstock and envelopes.

1. alcohol ink card

For the first card I used the blue alcohol ink that came in my kit. I applied that on yupo paper and some alcohol to move the ink easier with a straw while blowing. The blue background helps the cut out snowflake pop even more!

I also did the lift-ink technique on the background that added some extra interest and visual texture.

2. heat embossing card

For this card I layered two stamps of snowflakes one on top of the other for a more complicated look. I did some simple heat embossing with white powder and then applied my sentiment on top. For some extra silver sparkle I matted the panel with glitter cardstock and added silver sequins on the snowflake.

This is a square card, that’s 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and it fits in a standard envelope.

    Hi Vicky,

    You made beautiful cards, I live pretty much everything you make. Thanks for your inspiration. The kit is wonderful, and what I love most about it, is that is so versatile.
    I like the winter theme, but I can also see a bit of summer with that beautiful blue ink.

    Seasons greetings to you and your loved ones!
