It’s Snowflakes at Cute Card Thursday

Hello friends!  It’s time already for a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and as I can feel it growing even cooler by the day outside, I find that this challenge is very fitting and a great way to keep going on my Christmas pile!  We would like to see some “Snowflakes” on your creations this week!  We look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Our sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up Stamps.  They’re kind enough to provide an image to use for this challenge, so here’s what I’ve come up with:

This image is so sweet with the pup and kitty delivering their letters to Santa for Christmas is coming soon! 🙂  The image I’ve used is called Christmas Post from All Dressed Up Stamps and it already had some snowflakes within the image, but I always feel that snowflakes are big, small and fall everywhere, so I decided to add a few more with items from my stash.

I’ve colored my image with Copic markers and used some gel pens for the eyes, cheeks, parts of the mailbox lettering, center of snowflakes as well as adding some adding some random dots in the background for tiny snowfall flakes.  I’ve also had this Christmas Postmark stamp set in my stash and thought it was perfect to use as a sentiment for my card.  I stamped the circle, punched it out and layered it with another scallop circle that was punched from red cardstock.  I stamped the wavy lines post mark image behind that on the image panel.  The image panel was cut with a Wonky Stitched rectangle die.

Here’s a closer look at the image and how I’ve colored it.  For the top of the mailbox, the snowflake on the circle postmark and for the snow covered ground, I used some Sparkle N Sprinkle dimensional glue in those areas and then sprinkled some Diamond Dust glitter over top of it for some nice sparkling snow coverage.  (I love using that stuff for snowfall!)

You can also see the silver snowflake sequins that I’ve attached and then I’ve added some silver Stickles to the centers of each one.  I’ve layered this image panel to a red cardstock layer and then added some foam tape to the back of it and mounted it over my card front.

So for the card front panel, I took a white piece of cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and ran it through my die cut machine with a snowfall embossing folder and then I mounted this to a white top folding A2 sized card base and added the layered image panel over top.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today and please be sure to stop by the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog and see what the rest of the design team has for inspiration and join us this week with your snowflake creations! 🙂

  1. This is so cute, puts me in the mood to get going on my cards. Love the sparkle snow and the random snowflakes and sequins. SNOW is in our forecast for this evening. Ugh

    1. Yes, the snow is scheduled for us tonight as well. It’s just a wee bit early I think, but I will take the glitter snow ANY day! LOL! Thakns for your kind comment!

  2. What a super cute image of those adorable little critters posting their list to Santa. Gorgeous colouring and love the addition of the extra snowflakes and sequins and of course the bling of the glitter. Such a pretty card X

  3. Awe, Vicki! I love the beautiful image on your great card! Although I cannot imagine a dog and cat together kindly sharing a mailbox, it creates a fantastic image! LOL. Your coloring is great, as usual, and the added “snow” adds such beauty to the card! Love it!! BTW, I totally understand about SCS. I think everyone is having difficulty commenting and uploading. So, not a problem. Hugs!

  4. The postmark is a perfect addition for this adorable card and image. Wonderful glittery goodness. My big brother worked and retired from the post office – so I just adore everything about this.

  5. What a sweet and beautiful image, those little critters are just the cutest and so beautifully colored.
    Love all the glittery details and snowflakes.
    Thank you for playing along with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, hope you play again soon.
    Hugs.

  6. I don’t know what it is about mailboxes that make them Christmasy, but I find that they are. The postmark greeting fits right in with the theme. Super coloring and sparkly snow.

  7. Super cute image and beautifully coloured!
    Love the sparkle!
    Thanks playing along with the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH for “It’s Raining Cats & Dogs”
