Snowflake Wishes mini notecards


Using the Snowflake Wishes stamp set by Stampin' Up!, I've created this set of 4 mini notecards and envelopes, packaged in a decorated acetate box 


These 3" x 3" mini notecards are the perfect size to send festive wishes to those people that provide important services such as the newspaper delivery person, milkman, window cleaner or your local delivery driver(s) - especially with all those extra deliveries this year!!


I've only used two colours - Seaside Spray and Misty Moonlight. To achieve these different looks, I've used techniques such as 'stamping off' (also known as second generation stamping), I also used a sponge dauber on the stamp to create multi coloured stamped images. 

I was spoilt for choice as there are 11 different snowflake stamps in the Snowflake Wishes stamp set.


I decorated the acetate box with a belly band, which I embossed with the Winter Snow embossing folder. Attached to the belly band are circles die cut using the Layering Circles dies - one stamped using the same techniques as the card, the other, a scalloped circle die cut from Seaside Spray cardstock.

Although they are hard to see in these photographs, there are some Whisper White die cut snowflakes peeking out from under the banner.


All of the banners have been punched out of Seaside Spray cardstock using the Banners Pick a Punch. 

The beauty of this punch is that you can create banners of any length you choose with a choice of 3 different widths - 1/2", 3/4", 1" (1.3 cm, 1.9 cm, 2.5 cm). You also get to choose two different style ends making this punch perfect for using with any of the Itty Bitty sentiments stamp sets. 


In fact, I've used the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set for all of these sentiments. This is such a handy stamp set to have in your stash. Since last Christmas, I've pretty much used every stamp!


The sentiments have all been stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder and as you can see each banner has been created to perfectly fit the sentiment.


I hope you've enjoyed my project today! 

With only 35 days to go until Christmas, I'm busy designing Christmas cards for my friends and family! I'm even contemplating putting our Christmas decorations up a week or two early. 

Coming up soon on my blog I have something a little bit different to my usual papercraft projects for you. A quick and simple edible Christmas gift.
