Snowflake Christmas Card Ideas

Yikes! Christmas is only 10 days away! But there is still time to get your Christmas cards ready and even if they arrive after Christmas, I see no reason why we can't celebrate the season as long as possible!
If you aren't a fan of the tradition red and green then these snowflake Christmas cards might be right up your alley and it would be super easy to switch out the sentiments for some Happy New Year's or Winter Birthdays!

SNOWFLAKE CHRISTMAS CARD IDEAS

To create this set of cards, I started off by stamping, heat embossing and die cutting the snowflakes. I'm using the Dainy Snowflakes Large Stamp and Die Set and the Dainty Snowflakes Small Stamp and Die Set from Scrapbook.com. I did a set with white embossing powder and a set with silver. I then used these to embellish each of the cards.

MERRY CHRISTMAS CARD

For the background on this card, I used the ink smooshing technique on a piece of Distress Watercolor Paper using Distress Ink in Rustic Wilderness, Iced Spruce and Uncharted Mariner. I placed the ink in that order on my craft mat, spritzed it with water and then smooshed the paper into the ink. I then dried it with my heat tool. For a little more interest, I used a long paint brush to splatter some Iced Spruced and then heat dried it again.

I matted the background onto a piece of white cardstock that I custom colored with Uncharted Mariner Distress Ink. I used a blending tool to apply the ink just around the outer edge so as not to waste time or ink.

To embellish the card, I added some of the silver heat embossed Dainty Snowflakes. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then applied Uncharted Mariner Distress Ink over it using a blending tool and wiped the excess ink from the stamped area with a clean towel. I then trimmed it to size and adhered it to the card front.


MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS CARD

The background on this card is a little more time consuming, but the end result is stunning and well worth it! Here, I stamped the Small Dainty Snowflakes randomly onto a piece of Distress Watercolor paper with embossing ink and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

After the stamping and heat embossing was finished, I did the same ink smooshing technique that I used on the first card. I used the same ink colors and I also added a few ink splatters of Iced Spruce as well. Once the background was completed, I layered it onto a piece of silver cardstock and then onto a piece of ink blended cardstock as I did on the first card.

To embellish this card, I die cut a snowflake from silver cardstock using the Scrapbook.com Snowflakes Die Set. I cut it 2 more times from white cardstock and glued all of the layers together to make it a little more sturdy. I then added some silver thread behind the snowflake.

For the sentiment, I once again heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then inked the paper as I did on the first card.


BELIEVE CHRISTMAS CARD

On this card, I used the same stamping and white heat embossing as the second card, but here I didn't add the ink smooshing. I ink blending just a touch of Uncharted Mariner to the outside edge and added some Uncharted Mariner ink splatters. I then mounted this onto a piece of silver cardstock and an ink blended layer.

For this card, I took some of the Large Dainy Snowflakes and ink smooshed them using the same technique and colors that I used when I created the backgrounds on the previous cards. I set the other two to the side and layered one of them on top of a snowflake die cut from silver cardstock. I used the other larger snowflake from the Scrapbook.com Snowflakes Die Set.

I stamped the sentiment using Uncharted Mariner Distress Ink, trimmed it to size, inked the edges and adhered it to the card front.


MERRY AND BRIGHT CHRISTMAS CARD

To create the background on this final card, I took a piece of Distress Watercolor Paper and simply added some ink splatters with Uncharted Mariner Distress Ink.
I then took the leftover silver heat embossed snowflakes and the other two ink smooshed snowflakes and added them to the card front.

To finish it off, I added the sentiment using the same white heat embossing and inking as I did on the first two cards.


As always, I appreciate your visit and I hope you have a wonderful and blessed holiday season!
