Serene Sky

This is another Love Note card. The base is in the ever so lovely Soft Sky. The felt snowflake is from the Little Felt Flurries ( 27 laser-cut felt snowflakes. Each size comes in Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, and Whisper White. Nine designs, approximately 3-1/4" in diameter and 2 mm thick all for $5.99), which are also available on the Clearance Rack (see button to the right).
I'm really having fun with these! Snowflakes are always fun. Although I could wish we hadn't already had snow more than once here in Minne"snow"ta, lol!
  • Stamps: Serene Snowflakes
  • Paper: Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa
  • Ink: Baja Breeze, Versamark
  • Other: Soft Sky Love Note, Frost White Shimmer Paint and sponge dauber, silver brad, Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon,  Corner Rounder punch, Signo white gel pen, Iridescent Ice embossing powder, heat gun, Embossing Buddy, paper piercer and mat pack
  1. Use sponge dauber to lightly apply Frost White shimmer paint to the felt snowflake. Set aside to dry (will only take a minute or so)
  2. Cut a 2-1/2" square of Close to Cocoa and a 2-5/16" square of Very Vanilla. Round 2 opposing corners of each and also of the Soft Sky Love Note. 
  3. Ink edges all edges with Close to Cocoa.
  4. Rub Very Vanilla square with Embossing Buddy. Ink up snowflake stamp with Versamark, then with Baja Breeze, then stamp onto Very Vanilla. Apply Iridescent Ice embossing powder, then use heat gun to melt embossing powder.
  5. Adhere Vanilla and Cocoa layers together.
  6. Cut a 3" length of ribbon and adhere to the matted image. Adhere this unit to the cardfront.
  7. Use white gel pen and Close to Cocoa marker to make faux stitching and dots on the layer.
  8. Use paper piercer to poke a hole in the middle of the felt snowflake and to poke a hole in the card front where you want to felt snowflake. Push silver brad through the hole in the snowflake, then thru the hole in the cardfront and open the prongs in the back. All done!
