Can you believe that Christmas right around the corner? I can’t! I want to share a few snowflake Christmas cards I created for the holiday season that look like a lot of time and money was spent on them but weren’t; I spent around an hour and half completing these cards. I hope you like them!

I started by taking a piece of Snowflake on Reverse on Kraft Cardstock, folded and cut the following: 6″x6″ and two 3″x6″ for my card bases. From my stash of craft supplies I found a wooden snowflake which I covered with Icicle Glimmer Glaze and once dry spritzed with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist. I let that dry and applied another coat of Icicle Glimmer Glaze and set aside.
I punched decorative borders from Kraft Cardstock, cut a banner from a piece of Black and Ivory Pin Dot Cardstock and cut a piece of Ivory Burlap to 2 7/8″x3 1/2″ and fraying all edges. I adhered all pieces to the corner of the card before adding the wooden snowflake to the card, I adhered sequins and mini flat back pearls to the snowflake. Since part of it would be covered with a sentiment I left off sequins and flat back pearls on that part of the snowflake.
The “It’s the most Wonderful Time of the Year” Sentiment I cut from the Farmhouse Christmas: Tags on Ivory Cardstock. I framed with a piece of Kraft cardstock, added Pop Dots before placing on the card. I fussy cut the ice skates from the Farmhouse Christmas: Tags on Ivory Cardstock, added tiny bows that I created from the pulled Burlap to the skates and before adhering to the card I added a bit of burlap string to each of the skates.
I added a few sequin randomly sequins on the sentiment and finished by adding three buttons and a sequins and mini flat back pearl to the center of the wooden snowflake.
Next I cut a strip of Grey and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock and diamond cardstock from the Farmhouse Christmas: Tags on Ivory Cardstock and glued to the 3″x6″ base of the card. I also fussy cut from the same Farmhouse Christmas: Tags on Ivory Cardstock the “peace, comfort and joy” sentiment, added mini flat back pearls and pop dots to the back and placed on the card. This time from my mini ornament collection I used a glittered snowflake which I removed the hanger before adhere underneath the sentiment. I added three buttons, sequin and a mini flat back pearl to the center of the snowflake along with a few sequins to the base of the card.
The last 3″x6″ card I cut a 2 1/2″x3″ piece of Farmhouse Christmas: Snowflake on Ivory Cardstock, a 7/8″x3″ piece of Grey and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock and a 1/2″x3″ diamond cardstock from the Farmhouse Christmas: Tags on Ivory Cardstock and adhere all pieces to the base of the card. Next I cut the “Merry and Bright” sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas: Tags on Ivory Cardstock and frame with a piece of Grey and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock before adding pop dots to the back and placing on the card. I adhered another glittered snowflake ornament underneath the sentiment and add three buttons, sequin and a mini flat back pearl to the center of the snowflake and finished by randomly adhere sequins to the card base.
