Flurry of Wishes Handmade Christmas Cards

It is not too early to start on your handmade Christmas Cards! Check out this Flurry of Wishes Christmas card for inspiration.

If you are wanting to send handmade Christmas cards this December, I highly recommend you start on them early. If you are anything like me, you put making them off until the last minute and run out of time. If you start now and do a little bit at a time, they will be done in plenty of time for the holidays. Over the next month or so, I am going to be sharing with you several Christmas card ideas that are not only simple to make, but are beautiful as well. Today’s card is called Flurry of Wishes and it features pretty snowflakes embellished with sequins.

This card was made using the Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set and the matching snowflake punch. The punch makes quick work of cutting out the smaller snowflake stamped images. I absolutely love the ornate snowflakes in this stamp set. If you love snowflakes as much as I do, this stamp set is a great one to add to your collection.

Use the snowflake punch to cut out all the snowflake images. One thing I really love about this set is that both snowflakes stamp together and then the punch cuts out both of them at once.

Use the Deco Labels Die to cut out your sentiment. (I used the second to smallest one.) Then use the next size up to cut the mat out of a scrap of Pool Party cardstock.

Add Stampin Dimensionals to the two smaller snowflakes, then adhere to the card as shown.

You can play around with how you alternate the colors on the snowflakes. The first card I made I alternated between Island Indigo and Pool Party. The second card, I put Island Indigo in the corners and then pool party in the center around the sentiment. So before you stick anything down, play around and see which color arrangement you like best.
