Snowflake Flip It


On this blustery cold day I have a snowflake flip it card to share with you.  I'm just loving the beautiful Stampin' Up! thinlits die!

I started with a piece of 5 7/16" x 10" Brushed Silver paper and went under the knives on one side of the die to create a flip on the front of the card.  This allows me to have a bigger card and more space on the inside for a greeting.


The snowflake was decorated with Surf glitter paper, Soft Sky and Brushed Silver.  A rhinestone accents the center.  Silver glitter snowflakes fall down the left side of the card.  On the right side, I adhered snowflake paper to Soft Sky then wrapped a piece of organdy ribbon around them with a triple loop bow.  


The inside greeting was stamped in Marina Mist and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I also stamped a silver snowflake.  It was a little too difficult to flip the card open and try to take a picture holding the camera - sorry about that  :-(

Have you been keeping warm these last couple of days?  Our thermometer currently reads -9 degrees ... brrr!!!  Hey, after living on top of a mountain in Vermont a little cold won't hurt this gal.

Have a super day!  Thank you for stopping by.

Hi Donna,
Hope you had a good Christmas hon, and that the New Year has been good so far.
Absolutely love your pretty snowflake card, you did an awesome job as always.

Did you recently move?? Cause you were talking about that you used to live in Vermont, so just wondering since I haven't been by in awhile.

Keep making those gorgeous cards hon,
if you are like me, making them makes you happy............

Blessings Hon,
Nellie
