Beautiful Layered Snowflake Card Set | Hero Arts Colour Layering Snowflake Stamp Set


Hello everyone and thank you so much for stopping by, I have a set of Christmas cards to share with you today so let's jump right in.


I don't make card sets very often but when I do, I like to do everything assembly line style. I am making 6 cards in this set so every step will be done on each card before I move on, I find this is faster and easier when making the same card design many times. As always I like to cut my cardstock down first, I have my A2 Bases, I cut a black matte to be 1/8th of an inch smaller than my base and I cut my watercolour panel to be 1/8th of an inch smaller than my matte. I placed the watercolour panel in my Misti and added the largest snowflake from the HeroArts Color Layering Snowflake stamp set to the door of my Misti. For my Colour combo's I went with Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Prize Ribbon, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Villainous Potion, and Salvaged Patina, Cracked Pistachio and Pine Needles Distress Oxide Inks. I stamp the largest snowflake in the lightest colour of Oxide ink and mist it with water to create a more watercolour look, then set it aside to dry and work through the rest of my panels. Then I do the same with the medium snowflake and the middle colour and the same with the smallest snowflake and the darkest colour.


I used the darkest Oxide colour from each trio of colours and stamp out my sentiment on the same cardstock as I used for my panel and cut them out a small black matte to tie them into the card. Then I just needed to adhere everything to my card bases. I brought in some jewels that matched the colour combos I was going with as well just for some added bling.


I hope my explanation made sense, if not please watch the video below for a more in-depth look at how these cards came together, I also have a full supplies list below the video if you would like to know exactly what I am using.Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait to see you again soon!!
