|How to make a beautiful greetings card with a snowflake punch|
Snowflake Christmas card
A dark blue card is decorated with stamped snowflakes and snowflakes created with a craft punch. Some are punched in the same dark blue as the base card and others are punched from white card. Raised spots of Tulip fabric paint add sparkle. Two Merry Christmas stickers add the finishing touch.
Punch four jumbo snowflakes from white card and four jumbo snowflakes from blue card.
Punch eight small snowflakes from white card and nine small snowflakes from blue card.
Stamp the card with the Funstamps snowflake using a Versamark ink pad. This pad has clear ink that gives a watermark type effect.
Add two Merry Christmas stickers.
Mould the jumbo snowflakes so the are slightly dished. You could do this with the back of a spoon on a soft pad.
Mount the punched jumbo snowflakes on the card using a dot of glue in the centre of the back of the snowflake. Use the illustration as a guide to position.
Add a small white punched snowflake to the centre of each jumbo blue snowflake. Fix this with glue.
Add a small blue punched snowflake to the centre of each jumbo white snowflake. Fix this with glue.
Add small white and blue snowflakes between the jumbo snowflakes.
Add dots of Tulip fabric paint to the centre of each snowflake and at intervals between the snowflakes.
Outline the card with a silver pen.
Open out the card and cut a sheet of white paper slightly smaller than the open card.
Fold the paper in half.
Punch each corner with a holly corner punch.
Mount the white paper inside the card with a strip of double-sided adhesive tape next to the spine.
